Netgear constantly announces upgrades to enhance the performance of its products, create robust security, and introduce advanced features. You may see a pop-up regarding the firmware upgrade when you will open Netgear’s router login page. Click on that pop up to check whether a firmware upgrade is available for updating your router or not.
Step 1 : Open your internet browser on your smartphone or computer system, which is connected to the network of your router device. It is better to connect your router to the computer system using an ethernet connection for firmware upgrade.
Step 2 : Enter www.routerlogin.net in the location bar of the browser.
Step 3 : Tap or click on the search icon. The Netgear router login page will open up.
Step 4 : Type-in the login credentials. Enter admin in the username field as it is the default username and enter the word ‘password’ in the password section. Also, you need to be very careful while entering both the details as both the password as well as the username are case-sensitive.
Step 5 : Step 1 : After that, click on ‘Advanced’ and then go to ‘Administration’. Additionally, you can go to settings and then administration.
Step 6 : Click on router update or firmware update.
Step 7 : Now, tap or click on check. The router will begin to look for a new update.
Step 8 : In case the update is available, then click on yes. The firmware will be updated.
Don’t cause any interruptions while the update is going on or else it can lead to the risk of firmware corruption. For instance, don’t open a new link, don’t click on another link, or don’t leave the browser.
The router will restart once the firmware upgrade is over. It does not take more than 5 minutes for the update process to get completed.
