Installing TRENDnet® Router Software
Firmware is an embedded software inside a router. The TRENDnet wired and wirelesses have separate software/firmware, which is inbuilt in the package when you buy the router. An upgrade of the firmware must be done periodically to keep router at prime performance. Firmware is in read-only memory chips contained inside the router. Firmware is not erased when a router is powered off nor can hackers alter it externally. You need to change firmware only when a new one is available at manufacturer web site. The firmware codes are available in the TRENDnet website, so if you want custom updates, you can do it in that way also. The different wireless routers of TRENDnet are TRENDnet 450 Mbps Wireless N Gigabit Router TEW 691GR, and TRENDnet 300 Mbps Wireless N Travel Router Kit. Wired routers are 4-Port GB Firewall Router, 4-Port Broadband Router, 4-Port Dual WAN VPN Firewall Router, and 4-Port Advanced VPN Firewall Router. Router installation is done in two ways. In one method you can directly type the IP address in the address bar to access router configuration. In the second method you can use The Easy Go CD, which is the software tool used for the router information.

Installation with Easy Go Software
After connecting modem directly to system, insert the disk in to the system and click 'Install Router'. Navigate through the steps by entering password for router, network name, and security key. You can now write down the router details on the CD sleeve for future reference. Check whether SSID and encryption information matches your wireless router settings. The installation is complete now.
The TRENDnet router needs firmware upgrade once to include new patches. The new patch may contain new components that are not in the targeted software and updates to components that are already in the targeted software. You may get error message that it is not possible to install the Patch version on the current release. For fixing, check with versions and ensure that you have patch for the version of the firmware that you have installed.
You may get errors during installation that an error has occurred while writing to the RealView ICE. You have to do a re-installation for rectifying it. There may be errors during RVI update. You need to do a router reboot before the installation of router firmware/software. If there is any problem with installation disc, it may result in the improper installation.
