Step 3: If your router has a password, enter it. Otherwise, press Submit after leaving the field blank.

Step 4: Click Firmware Update in the left navigation panel's Utilities portion.

Step 5: Pick the firmware file you downloaded by clicking Browse... and then selecting it.

Step 6: Click Update after selecting the firmware file.
