what is the model number of the router.

here are instructions for doing it

http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&aid=5947

 

you probably have to have your comptuter connected via ethernet cable rather then wireless.

 

basic procedure is to download the firmware update to your computer

save it in a known location

log in to the router using your internet explorer

select firmware update

browse to the file you saved on your computer

tell it ok you really want to do this several times

here is a link where you can download the firmware update. you must first download and save the update to your computer then you can do the update by pointing the router to the file you downloaded and saved you might need to disable your firewall while doing it
