Firmware Upgrade

The web interface of the NETGEAR Router will vary between models and even between firmware revisions so the first thing to note will be whether the web page says at the top ‘NETGEAR Genie Setup’ or ‘NETGEAR Smart Wizard’ similar to the screenshots below. Before proceeding with a secure configuration, it is first important to confirm that the router is running the latest available software and update it if not.

If the router uses the ‘NETGEAR Genie Setup’ software, use the following steps

Choose the ‘Advanced’ tab as shown here:
Click to expand ‘Administration’ from the navigation buttons on the left side of the page
Choosing ‘Firmware Update’ will show a page similar to this:
Click the ‘Check’ button to check for a new firmware version from the Internet
Follow the onscreen instructions to proceed with the firmware update as needed

If the router uses the ‘Smart Wizard’ software, use the following steps:

Clicking ‘Router Upgrade’ (located under Maintenance in the left navigation panel) should load a page similar to this:
NETGEAR Smart Wizard Firmware Update

Click the ‘Check’ button to check the Internet for firmware updates
Follow the onscreen instructions to install new firmware as needed
