Update the Router Firmware
The router firmware (routing software) is stored in flash memory. You might see a message at the top of the router
pages when new firmware is available. You can respond to that message to update the firmware or you can check
to see if new firmware is available and update your product.
To check for new firmware and update your router:
1. Launch a web browser from a computer or WiFi device that is connected to the network.
2. Enter http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.
3. Enter the router user name and password.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
The BASIC Home page displays.
4. Select ADVANCED > Administration > Firmware Update.
The Router Update page displays.
5. Click the Check button.
The router finds new firmware information if any is available and displays a message asking if you want to
download and install it.
6. Click the Yes button.
The router locates and downloads the firmware and begins the update.
To avoid the risk of corrupting the firmware, do not interrupt the update. For example,
do not close the browser, click a link, or load a new page. Do not turn off the router.
When the upload is complete, your router restarts. The update process typically takes about one minute. Read
the new firmware release notes to find out if you need to reconfigure the router after updating.
Change the admin Password
You can change the default password that is used to log in to the router with the user name admin. This password
is not the one that you use for WiFi access.
