Router

I need to update the new firmware.  The directions tell me to connect my computer to the router with an ethernet cable.  It is wireless and I don't have an ethernet cable.  How do I do the update?

Re: Router

we usually recommend doing it over a hardwired connection. You can do it over wireless. 

but we recommend it hardwired because if we see corrupt firmware issues, it tends to be done over wireless or through the app. 

 

Options? 

Make a backup and give it a try wireless. 

buy a cheap usb----ethernet adapter so you can hardwire in

Or just not update 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
1.4gig download/50mbps upload from Xfinity
