you will need to search the torrents to find the firmware upgrade, Mitel have removed the firmware upgrade site to stop people from upgrading the firmware for SIP use instead of Minet, once you find the firmware you want then you upgrade it from a web browser.
upgrade of Firmware is at your risk...
never upgrade Firmwares....they are not ment for that....
your hardware may be rendered useless after firmware upgrades....the chip inside your hardware is programed to run based on a certian program installed as a firmware from the factory....sometimes upgrades will screwup your hardware....so be careful and do it at your own risk...
Installing/upgrading firmware is usally not requemented. You will not be adding any new feature to u're unit. There's no reason to do reinstall or upgrade the firmware other than to repair the unit in the event the units firmware is corrept.
Firmware upgrade is a simple but a delicate procedure. Make sure you are loading the correct firmware. You should get your firmware from the website of your router. Installing a THIRD PARTY firmware to your router voids the warranty of your router. Here is a tip for a successful firmware upgrade. BEFORE FIRMWARE UPGRADE(push the reset button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power of the router for 10 seconds). Upgrade the firmware. After the upgrade push the reset button again for 30seconds, unplug power for 10 seconds.
Firmware Upgrade Instructions: Please download and unzip the firmware file to computer's local hard drive and then follow the instructions in the "readme.txt" file to upgrade the firmware.
Warning : - Firmware upgrade failure may permanently damage the unit and causing it not to function. If the issues in the "Release Note" do not address the problem you are experiencing, please do not upgrade the firmware. Never upgrade the firmware using a wireless connection. Firmware upgrade will reset the Router to factory default state (all current settings will be replaced by default settings). When necessary, please write down the Router's current settings before performing the firmware upgrade. Please do not load the previously saved Router "configuration file" to the new firmware.
If you need assistance performing the firmware upgrade or if you have any questions, please contact our Techsupport Team http://www.trendnet.com/support.
Before doing the firmware upgrade, write down all the configuration settings made by you in the router.
To upgrade the firmware, login to the router's web interface -> enter the password (smcadmin) -> click on login -> tools -> firmware upgrade -> click on browse -> browse to the location of the upgrade file -> click on 'Begin Upgrade' button -> you will be prompted to confirm the upgrade.
