 Please connect an Ethernet cable from your existing modem/router/network in to the port labelled "Internet" on the back of the Netgear.

Please connect an Ethernet cable between port 1 on the back of the Netgear and your computer.

Turn on the router and wait for a few minutes.

Open a web browser and type in to the address bar.

You will be prompted to log-in. The default username is "admin" and the password is "password" unless you have changed these.

Click on "Advanced" on the top menu.

Click "Administration" on the left menu.

Click "Firmware Upgrade" on the left.

Click "Choose File" and browse to the firmware file that you have been provided. 

NOTE: If you receive an error, please rename the file extension to .img instead of .bin. So the full file name will be ng-r6100.img and try uploading again.

Click "Yes" to confirm the firmware upgrade.

The upgrade process will now begin. This takes up to 5 minutes to complete.
