Please refer to the firmware download centre for instructions. The installation file varies from model to model, the MT3000 can use tar files.
Accessing 192.168.1.1 has nothing to do with the firmware file.
After you have uploaded the firmware file, the device should reboot and you will need to re-enable DHCP on the client and connect to 192.168.8.1.
So, I followed the steps, several times, and still can’t reach 192.168.1.1 to upload the file through u boot. This is a work laptop…is it possible that there is some company software built in to prevent me from doing this?
