After the upgrade is complete, you will need to sign in 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.
