Upgrade firmware on NETGEAR router.

Many a times, it is required that you upgrade the firmware on your NETGEAR for it to function properly and be equipped with the latest updates and feature offered by NETGEAR.

I have listed the specific steps which are required to upgrade firmware on most of the NETGEAR

A. Open the router page using the following way:

1. Connect a computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports.
2. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
3. Access the router, usually with or or
4. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the username and password is case sensitive. In case you have changed the password for router login then you need to use that one).

B. Visit the following link to download the latest firmware.

Type the model make of your NETGEAR router and it will show you the download page for that specific product.

C. Please follow the steps to upload the firmware of the router:

1. Open the router page using the steps as mentioned under step A.
2. Under Maintenance, click router Upgrade.
3. Click Browse and locate the upgrade file.
4. Click Upload.
5. Wait for the router to reboot.
6. Click on 'Logout' (at the bottom of the list) from left menu.

It is recommended that you reset and then reconfigure your router for the firmware to upload properly.

NOTE: Please upgrade the firmware on a computer connected wired to your router. Upgrading firmware on a wireless computer may cause your router to malfunction and can lead your router to be in an unusable state.

These steps will succesfully allow you to upgrade firmware on your NETGEAR router.

I tried a firmware upgrade to resolve an issue with the router dropping WiFi connections but now it doesn't work even after a factory reset

Wrong firmware. Never upgrade firmware unless recomended by the mfgr or the unit itself can upgrade automatically like most newer Netgear models.

Buy a new router, they are very inexpensive.

I think my router needs upgrading because the connection keeps going down and knocking me off explorer and firefox it did this before i had to ring aol because my unit had reset itself to basic mode and...


What you can do before purchasing a new router is to try updating the firmware on your modem. The firmware can fix minor "bugs" or "malfunctions" that a device can have. You can go to the link below and try updating the firmware. The information you'll need to ensure you download the correct firmware is the "version number" of your modem. On the bottom of you modem there should be a "DG834G" with a "v" then a number. That is your "version number". If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

Plug in the power cord. Push and hold the reset button for about minute. This should do it. If not contact netgear at 1-888-638-4327.
