Download the firmware to a convenient place such as your desktop.
Log in to the router using http://routerlogin.net

 Click the ADVANCED tab.
Click Administration.
Click Router Update.
Click the Manual Update tab.
Select satellite first and a new web page pops up. Please browse the new satellite firmware and upgrade satellite firmware first.
After you finish the satellite firmware upgrade, please find “Locate and select the upgrade file on your disk” on the MR60 web GUI and click “Browse” and locate the file you just downloaded.
Click Upload. While the firmware is loading, do not interrupt the upgrade process.

To check that the upgrade was successful, log in to the router again at

Note: If a problem is seen after applying this FW update, try powering OFF the ISP modem, MR and MS units for 1 minute then back ON. Last resort would be to try a full on Factory Reset and setup from scratch.

Can someone check the download files?

Can't seem to upgrade it.  Tells me the file is not compatible.   I have tried downloading multiple times to ensure it was not corrupt.  I have MK83 setup with MR80 and MS80.   When I manually upgrade the MS80s I get the following error:

 

 

Failure
This firmware file is incorrect! Please get the firmware file again and make sure it is the correct firmware for this product.
 
This screen will automatically return to the previous screen in a few seconds...

What broswer are you using? Try MS Edge or Firefox? 

I presume you are unpacking the .zip files as well?

I tried Firefox, Edge and Chrome.   All three fail with the same error.

Open to other ideas.

And you do have the MK80 series system correct? 

What version of FW is currently loaded?

Correct 2 MS80s tied to an MR80, all three are running v1.1.6.6.

I'd reach out to NG support and let them know what your seeing. Send a forum moderator a PM as well.

Any updates on this? Are you still having problems loading this version of FW files?

I opened a ticket with Netgear. After two weeks of not hearing from them, I gave up and returned the devices and went back to my previous WiFi vendor. I am completely disappointed in them. I can’t believe they charge so much for the device and on top of it they want extra money for parental and security features, yet they can’t even acknowledge a support ticket in a timely manner.

Ok, sorry about that. I passed this on to NG for review. Hoping they will figure it out.
