Wireless-N Internet Home Monitoring Camera

Firmware Upgrade

Upgrade Firmware

New firmware versions are posted

at and can be downloaded for
free. If the Camera is functioning satisfactorily, there is no
need to download a newer firmware version, unless that
version has a new feature that you want to use. Loading
new firmware onto the Camera does not always enhance
its performance.

Linksys recommends that you upgrade the Camera’s
firmware within your network; in other words, use a
computer within the Camera’s local network. If you
attempt to upgrade the Camera’s firmware from a remote
location—using a computer outside of the Camera’s local
network—the upgrade will fail.

To upgrade the firmware:

1. Go to the Linksys website,,

and download the firmware upgrade file for the
Camera. Then extract the file.

2. From the Setup > Administration screen, click Upgrade


3. You will see the Upgrade Firmware screen. Click Browse

to find the extracted file, and then double-click it.

4. Click Start Upgrade, and follow the on-screen

instructions. To cancel the upgrade, click Cancel.
