A firmware update improves your Belkin router's performance and may also fix issues that existed with the previous firmware version. This article explains how to use the web interface to Update Belkin Router Firmware.
The Update can be taken out via the router's web interface.
Step 1: Start a web browser, type 192.168.2.1 into the address bar, and hit [ENTER]. You can also navigate the web interface by typing "https://router" in the address bar.
Note: 192.168.2.1 is the Belkin router's default IP address. Check your router's IP address if this doesn't work.
Step 2: In the top-right corner of the page, click Login.
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.
Step 7: You'll be asked if you want to continue with the Update. Click the OK button.
Step 8: At the end of the Update, a prompt will appear warning you not to switch off or reset the router. Click the OK button. After that, the firmware update status will appear.
IMPORTANT: DURING THE Upgrade PROCESS, MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT INTERRUPT OR UNPLUG THE ROUTER.
Step 9: You will be asked to wait for a few seconds after the Update is completed.
Step 10: After the router has rebooted, click OK.
NOTE: If the firmware update fails or you receive an error message, power cycle your router and device before attempting the Update again. If this doesn't work, try the same methods on a different computer to narrow down the issue. If the problem continues, reset the router to factory settings and reinstall the Update.
