Firm Ware update for N300

I need to update firmware.  I cannot do it now with netgear genie.  I found that my ISP must perform the update.  Just wanted to confirm before I contact them.  Am I correct?  Is there anything I need to be aware of before I contact them?

 

Thanks

You have the wnr2000v5? 
If so, the isp doesn't update it, you do. 

you can get the firmware and the manual that goes over a manual update here:

Re: Firm Ware update for N300

Don't take this the wrong way but if you truly have a wnr2000v5, its more expensive to buy support than it is to buy a new one. 

Its pretty easy to update the firmware. 

you can read the guide here:

Re: Firm Ware update for N300

I get to step 8 in the instructions:

 

 When I enter the router admin user name and password I get an error message that the server does not support the operation requested by your client.  I have tried the default address 192.168.1.1 but that does not work either.

 

Any ideas how I get around that?

 

I appreciate your help.

Re: Firm Ware update for N300

step 8 is the password/login info for the router. 

Does the password/login info screen pull up? 

But when you enter the password info, it says not supported?

Did you change the password?

Re: Firm Ware update for N300

I didn't change the password.  I am using the defaults.  

 

I did run across something.  I might need to clear the cashe in the firefox browser.  

 

That might take me a little time to figure out.

 

I will get back with you.  Thanks
