    3. Go to Administration > Firmware upgrade.
    4. DD-WRT firmware should be downloaded on your computer first.
    5. Browse to the MINI firware which you have previously downloaded, then press UPGRADE. (In case of upgrading the original Linksys firmware, you MUST upgrade to the mini version of DD-WRT first). UPGRADE MUST NOT BE INTERRUPTED so please don’t turn off the power or press the reset button. After 3-4 minutes “Upgrade successful” will come up. Please wait for this message it is very important. Do not go further until you can see the message.
    6.After the successful firmware upgrade, reset your router by pressing the reset button for at least 5 sec. on the back of your router (little button on the back of the router).
