Updating your Routers Firmware

Locate and download the firmware file from the Belkin support site. (Type in your part number in the search box in the top right and look for "Firmware" in the title)
Save the file to a location on your computer where you can get to it easily, such as your desktop.
Connect the computer to one of the four gray ports on the back of the router.

Open a web browser on the computer.
In the address bar of the web browser, type and press Enter on your keyboard.
Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
Click on "Firmware Update" toward the bottom of the left-hand menu.
Click the Browse button toward the middle of the screen to search for the file you saved previously.

Select the firmware file by left-clicking on it and then click the Open button in the lower right corner of the window. This will take you back into the router's interface.
Click the Update button.
A prompt asking, "Are you sure you want to continue with upgrading?" will appear. Click OK.
A second prompt will open telling you the router will not respond during the upgrade and warning you not to remove the power supply to the router. Click OK once more.
Congratulations. The firmware has been updated successfully

3347nwg-006 firmware download

Eh..some yes, mostly NO! I am a technician for the company that widely set up these type routers/switches/gateways and the simple problem is that most of these were used during installation by BellSouth which is now technically SBC Doing Business As; AT&T, DBA BellSouth Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama,ETC.
follow this link
AT Drivers and Downloads

and select your model of the Netopia 3000 series you have and click the firmware link. DO NOT RUN THIS FILE. IT IS A .BIN FILE TO BE USED IN THE ROUTER'S UPDATE FIRMWARE SECTION. Go back into the update firmware menu and instead of choosing the automatic or online feature *previously a BellSouth domain now converted to an AT&T ITservices domain which is why it can't find it) choose the browse or select file option and select the .bin file you saved and that should do it.

Router now works intermittently, will disconnect from internet and i have to unplug it and plug it back.reloaded software, try to update firmware but i get a .bin file and all i can do save it what else...

Try resetting the router. If it does not work then you will have to update the firmware of the router. To do that you have to download the firmware file of the router ( it will have an extension of .bin). Save the file in your pc and go to the router's page and update it. It will look for a .bin file. Browse to the location where you downloaded the firmware and update.

Will not upgrade to latest firmware

The newest firmware version is actually v 2.01.
The file should be called DI634M_firmware_201.bin and is engineered for North American products only. Does that apply to you?
You can get the file here.
Important! - Make sure that you use only hard-wired network connections for upgrading. Do NOT upgrade firmware on any router over a wireless connection. This might result in a device failure.
Here is also a page with detailed instructions.

If you have any more questions or this doesn't work for you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Unable to update firmware

Your router latest Firmware I can see on D-link website is 1.02
If you are referring to German web site page showing a file be sure to follow the instruction to UNZIP the web_dwlg700ap_v200_r11_0408.bin file:
DWL-G700ap Firmware Update

- Browser starten
- Konfiguration des DWL-700ap aufrufen (Standard IP
- oben auf Tools
- links auf Firmware
- auf den Knopf Durchsuchen klicken
- die Firmware Datei (web_dwlg700ap_v200_r11_0408.bin) auswählen
- auf Apply klicken

Wenn die Firmware installiert und der DWL-700ap dann neu gestartet ist klicken Sie oben auf Tools/System/Restore to Factory Default.

Danach ist die Firmware übernommen.

If you did not unzip the bin file router cannot run it as firmware update
More over be sure to run the update via LAN cable connection (no WLAN)

I did exactly the same thing!. This is how I fixed it.
Use Updater.exe NOT WebUpdate. Download the latest firmware for your unit (the rgn file), then connect your nuvi via usb. Turn it on and hold the power button left, at the same time drag and drop the rgn file onto the Updater,exe. It will start automatically and reload the firmware over the corrupt one.

How to upgrade the firmware on a BEFW11S4

Firmware upgrades may erase all previous settings to your router's configuration. Before upgrading your firmware, make sure to record your settings. 1. Unplug and disconnect all computers from the router except for one. This computer must be plugged into the router directly. There can be no other network activity (wired and wireless) on the router during the upgrade, so be sure to power off all other computers. 2. Go to 3. Select the model number of the Linksys router you have. Make sure to select the correct router version as well, as firmware upgrades frequently vary by version. You can find your router version underneath your router after the model number. For example, ?BEFW11S4 ver. 2?. 4. Click the Downloads for this Product button. 5. Once you arrive on the download page, click the Firmware button. 6. After the firmware page opens, click the link that says ?Click here to download the latest firmware...? and download the firmware file to your computer. 7. Once you download the firmware Zip file, unzip it. If you do not have an unzipping program, go to and download WinZip, which will allow you to unzip the file. 8. After unzipping the firmware files, one of them will be called TFTP.EXE. Double click on it. 9. When the ?Upgrade Firmware? window opens, you will have three prompts. The ?Server? field is for the IP address of your router; by default this would be 10. Enter the routers password into the ?Password? field; by default the password is admin. 11. Browse for the file in the Firmware Upgrade utility program by clicking on the button next to file with the '?' symbol on it. Look for the file named 'code.bin' in the folder where the firmware files were extracted to. 12. Highlight the code.bin file and click on the Open button to direct the TFTP loader program to put that file into the "File" box. 13. The full path should be displayed [example: c:\linksys\code.bin]. 14. Click on the Upgrade button to begin the upgrade process. 15. The upgrade should take about 1 minute, and you will be prompted after the upgrade is complete and successful. If you are still having troubles, contact Linksys Technical Support.
