Router Firmware - BIN File?

By HeAdCrAb KILLA

  1. I just downloaded the latest version of firmware for my linksys wireless-B broadband router (BEFW11S4). The file that was downloaded is a .bin file. What do I do with it to update my router's firmware?

    [Update] - Nevermind I figured it out. All I had to do was log onto the admin thingy and select the binary file to upgrade.

    go to your routers homepage Ex. http://192.168.x.x

    Once your in your routers homepage go click on the administration tab , once the adminstration tab is clicked , a line below provides you several options to select from. Select the (firmware upgrade ).

    in there it will say

    Please select a file to upgrade ______________________ Browse

    click on the browse button and locate where you saved your firmware bin file

    i would usually save the bin file to my desktop for the simple reason its easy to locate.

    once you locate your file scroll down and click on upgrade. This may take a few seconds and when the meter is done click on the continue button and u should have an updated firmware for your router :)
