TRENDnet® router firmware update
TRENDnet routers are wireless routers used to set-up a wireless network. You can install a wireless network card on a computer and set-up a wireless router on the network. Any Wi-Fi enabled computer which enters the range of the wireless router can be the part of a network. A firmware program is included in the router to run various network services and to hold router settings. To make any changes to the router settings, users can use the firmware program interface which is also known as router configuration page. To access the router, you need to type in the IP address of the router on Internet Explorer and press 'Enter'. You will be prompted to enter the user name and the password to log in to the router configuration page. You can make changes to the router settings, save the changes and exit the firmware page.

Ways to update firmware
To update firmware, you need to search for the exact firmware program for the router on TRENDnet website. You can download the firmware package to your computer and save it in a safe location. Now, you need to connect the router to the computer and ensure that the router and the computer are in sync. Double-click on the downloaded firmware package and follow the onscreen instructions. The router will reboot during the update and once the update is completed, you get a message on the screen stating that the update was successful.
Things to keep in mind while updating
You need to ensure that the firmware program that you are going to download is compatible with the router because incompatible installation of firmware can make the router non-functional. Before downloading the firmware program on your computer, make sure that the computer is not infected with any kind of threats. Ensure that your computer does not get turned off during the updation process. It is wise to use a high speed Internet connection to download the firmware.
Connectivity to the router might fail to get a firmware update. In order to avoid such issues, you can directly connect the router to a computer using an Ethernet cable and set the computer to obtain the IP address from the router. The updation process may stop because some other applications or programs are using the CPU or system RAM. You need to close all the running programs to avoid any sort of hindrance.
