    yes you can find it using you laptop but yes make sure that the connection is wired with the router when you do an upgrade,go to run,type in cmd and then press enter,a black box will appear in that box type in ipconfig and hit enter,it will give u a list of options,you will see something which will say default gateway make a note of those number(example it will be like 192.168.1.1 it might be different as well),put this numbers in the address box of your browser,once you do this you will get a screen to put in the user name and password to put in and sometimes you will also see the name and model no of the router depending upon the vendors setup steps,generally the user name and password will be eihter admin/admin or blank/admin or admin/blank these are the more common combination the router manufacturers uses.Once it is accepted you will be navigated to the router page where you can find the name as well as the version no.....do these steps and let me know will get back to you with the link to update the firmware...

    good luck...

    Hi there - concerning your second question, if you plan to update firmware from a laptop, you must do so with a wired connection, or you risk 'bricking' your router. Backup your router configuration settings before the update. Good luck with this

SOURCE: Updated Canadian firmware

check the exact model of your router with the version number.. it can be found underneath the device itself.. you could also check the firmware on the router's page by accessing it, then go to the status tab.. on that kind of routers, if the firmware ranges from 1.50.0-1.51.2 you need to upgrade that because it gives you a problem.. the latest version is 1.52.2.. those are routers of version 5 and 6.. you can download the firmware at www.linksys.com/downloads.. select NA and usa first then type your model number and select your version number.

SOURCE: firmware update for netgear router

I was having the same issues too. I followed the steps dotted all over the internet and was getting stuck in exactly the same place. No matter how hard I tried, I just kept getting the 'invalid filename' issue.

Eventually I figured it out - the way that Netgear/Virgin have blocked firmware updating is to break the filename checking page so it doesn't accept any files. What we need to do is bypass the filename checking code so that the firmware upgrade system can then handle the file, and we're going to do this by manipulating the web page using a tool called Firebug.

Here is the solution:

1) If you haven't already got it, install Mozilla Firefox 3 (there is good reason for this - I'm not just shamelessly plugging it! :P).
2) Install the 'Firebug' extension for Firefox from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1843 and restart your browser when requested.
3) Navigate to your router's admin page, and fill in your login details (if you don't know them, it's likely to be the one written on the bottom of your router).
4) Navigate to the router upgrade page (the one where you select the firmware to upload' and select the location of the firmware file, like you would normally. Now, instead of clicking the 'Upload' button, press F12. This should bring up Firebug in the bottom quarter of your screen.
5) Now, click the moz-screenshot.png2193448.jpgbutton at the top of the Firebug panel and then click on the 'Upload' button. This will bring up the code for the upload button, where it does the filename checking. It'll look like this:
b5b0399.jpg

6) It looks like Netgear have actually stripped out the real checking code so it can't be used, so we'll need to fool the page into thinking everything's fine and dandy with the filename so it can update the firmware. Click where it says "return checkData();" and replace it with "return true;".

7) Finally, click the upload button. The router should now accept the file and start updating.

And hey presto! You have a non-nargled wireless router with the latest firmware!

SOURCE: Hi I cant configure my router D-link DIR-300

This definitely worked for me. To find out your computer's MAC address, just go to start, then click run, then type 'CMD'. When prompted, type 'ipconfig/all'. Find your ethernet adapter local area network connection, and underneath you will find a lablel titled Physical Address. This is your MAC address and should consist of 6 pairs of number/letter combinations. Then connect your computer to the modem, eithe wirelessly or directly and point your browser to 192.168.0.1. Under Setup click Internet Setup and then click Manual Internet Connection Setup. Under Internet Connection Type, select Dynamic IP (DHCP), then under MAC address, type in the MAC address of your computer. Click Save Settings and Presto! It worked for me.

Update firmware


Usually you can login on your browser to you router and go to the management section to check for firmware updates and select that button and it will download and install the firmware. On some models, you have to go to the D-link web site and look for firmware updates for your router. Always check what you current firmware you have installed and check the version of you router modem (A, B, C etc). Then you can manually download the firmware (usually in a ZIP file), open the zip file, and then using your browser connected to the router look for Update Firmware. You will have to go to where (folder) you saved the downloaded update and select that file. It is recommended that you update using a LAN connection and not a wireless connection.

It didn`t work with updating the firmware


Try moving the access point to another spot in the house.

Also you should try changing the channel that you are on and see if that helps.

Try the below order again even if you tried it once.

Update your OS first, if not already done. Search for a firmware update for your specific brand and model of wireless router. And see if your computer's wireless equipment might have a firmware update available. Sometimes these will address and fix similar problems. (Tip: Never update router firmware over a wireless connection.) I don't know what you're using for network security, but if applicable, try changing the router's wireless frequency/channel to something other than default. Experiment a bit. See if distance from router to computer has any impact on a dropped connection. Move the router itself to a different location in the house, if possible. Wireless connections seem to be prone to dropping their signal. I don't know if this is any better with the newer routers coming to market in the near future.

Please post any further comments and keep me updated and I will try to figure this out if the above doesn't work
