00:11
today we re upgrading the A Seuss R t a C 66 you home router, which is the one that he's home here. We're in need of a firmware upgrade. Uh, specific router won't. Doesn't actually, like, send you an email or doesn't auto update for us? I can tell.
00:28
Uh, every once in a while, you just have to log in and take a look. You see, if you haven't upgraded Ready.
00:36
All right. So things take for you. Don't like the passion notes available.
00:40
One thing you want to be aware of is you should have the backup from where
00:46
available the old one.
00:48
Just in case that generally use a VPN if you're teleworking by, just in case you want to make sure that all your applications work after the upgrade
01:00
and you know, back up the road a figure you can like. I have a bunch of static addresses. Set M I t h e p settings. I have ah specific DNS server set,
01:10
uh, things like that, you know?
01:15
So let's go ahead and get patched. Suppose bring this in and was go to the address
01:23
one.
01:26
Alrighty. So here we're logged in. Now what we're gonna do is if he sees this little flashing a roll off that side there.
01:34
So we're gonna go ahead and click. That's gonna tell us just new firmware available. Let's go to the update. Now,
01:41
this is a signature for the,
01:44
uh, antivirus said it's running
01:46
so that automatically have dates, but the firmware does not. So I see. Here we have the release notes so we can see double issues.

02:01
You know, you can go through and read a few things,
02:06
so it looks good for me. So let's go ahead and just do the firmware upgrade.
02:12
So this will take a minute. Obviously, you have to have a Internet connection. It was It's not a little check, but we'll go and positivity you and let it finish here.
02:23
All right, so it upgraded it, automatically reloaded here and log back in.

how to get there so of mine got on administration for upgrade.
02:43

03:36
are deciding to upgrade your router or upgraded the firmware in the middle of a rain storm, he was power. You could run into some issues. There is. Well, you could actually potentially break your advice.
03:46
Chicken in the That's the result. Cough could be important. Just to know what the DNS server is in case you don't back up your
03:54
config for some reason. And you'll, uh, you're just going to click, Except you're always just gonna click Accept
