Instructions for the firmware upgrade for the MR1900

Note: It is very important that there are no interruptions to the upgrade process of the firmware, as it could cause irreparable damage to the unit. We recommend that you use an Ethernet connection from your computer to the router.

If you are using a laptop, make sure that it has sufficient power to complete the process.
