I believe you are ask to download the latest firmware for this...if this is the case, please follow steps below;

1. Please verify the model and version of the router underneath it.
2. Go to http://kbserver.NETGEAR.com/downloads_support.asp and select the model of the router.
3. Please click on the appropriate version of the router.
4. Select the link of the latest firmware. Please click on the button Right-click and Save to Download.
5. Save the file to the Desktop.

Note: Please perform firmware upgrade with wired or Ethernet connection only. Before you upgrade, write down all current settings as you need to enter them manually after upgrading.

6. Using the computer hardwired on the router, open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
7. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
8. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

9. Click on Maintenance and then Router Upgrade.

Then After updating the firmware go to installation process, this are the steps;

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

How do I find my pass work for wifi


If you are using AT&T as your internet service provider the password might be on the side or bottom of the Modem/Router of theirs. Look for something called Network Key or Network Password/Passphrase.

If it's a wireless router you purchased and installed then you will need a network cable to go from the router into the pc. If you have a desktop it might already have the network cable going from the router to the desktop then use the desktop. You'll need to get into the router's configuration. To do that you'll have to open up internet explorer then type the router's ip address into the browsers address area where you would normally type www. Normally the router's ip address will be something like 192.168.1.1 Once you are into the router the configuration interface will come up. It will ask you for the userid and password. Most times people leave these set as the default that came with it. Once you're in, go to the wireless and wireless security tabs and there you'll see your SSID (the network you connect to) and the Password.

If you don't know the router's ip address, userid or password, you can go to www.google.com and type in the manufacturer's name and support. For example if you have a Netgear Router type "Netgear Support" . On their site for your model number they will have a manual that you find find the info you need. In addition to the 192.168.1.1 type of ip address, Netgear also had something like Netgear.routerlogin

You can also just google "Netgear router ip address" put your router model in between Netgear and router to scale down the search.

You can also do the same thing to find the default userid and password. Just google "Netgear Router userid or Password".
