How to Upgrade the Firmware:

When you run the firmware update, all settings will be erased; therefore it is important that you take notes on any settings that you have set up on the router so that you can re-input them in after the firmware update.

  1. Bring up browser and type and put in motorola for the password.
  2. Click on Advanced at the top menu.
  3. On the menu on the left hand side, click on System Management. This will open a drop down menu.
  4. Click on Software Update.
  5. Click on Select File and then locate the folder where you have the firmware file (MR1700-v1.0.3.bin). Select it and then click Open.
  6. Put a check mark to Clear current configuration.
  7. Click on update software and an Update software message confirmation will pop up and click to confirm.
  8. A 160 second timer will start up. Do not interfere with this process as it can cause irrevocable damage to the router.
  9. When the firmware update is finished, you will get a message Software Update Successful. Then when the next screen appears, click on Configure the router.
  10. You can now make changes to the following:
    1. Network
    2. WiFi Settings
    3. Changing Router Login Password
  11. After you have made the desired changes, click Save and the router will restart.
  12. Log back into the router and add any saved settings as needed.
