Upgrading the Router Firmware

The routing software (also called firmware) of the WNDR3700 router is stored in flash memory,
and can be upgraded as NETGEAR releases new software. Your router can download and install
the new software, or you can download upgrade files from the NETGEAR website and manually
send the upgrade file to the router using your browser.

Tip: To ensure that you are always using the latest router firmware, enable the Firmware

Upgrade Assistant feature so that the router will automatically detect a new version
of the firmware on the Internet and alert you to its availability.
