This guide will show you how to upgrade your ExpressVPN Router Firmware:

Before you start:  Go to and download the latest firmware for your router model. If you are unsure which router model you have, see this guide on identifying which Linksys router you have.

Step 1: Go to using the router’s Wi-Fi connection. On the page, select System and then Backup / Flash Firmware.


Step 2: Click on Choose File and select the firmware file. Next, click Flash Image…


Step 3: You will be asked to verify whether you want to flash the firmware. Click Proceed.


Step 4: Wait a moment while the firmware is upgrading. After the upgrade is complete, you will need to login again. Enter the username and password found on your printed instructions sheet or the bottom of your router and click Login.

Note: During the firmware upgrade process, your device will be disconnected from the router’s Wi-Fi. This is completely normal. To complete the upgrade process, simply select and connect to the router’s Wi-Fi from your device again.
