Disable Compound TCP[edit]

    2. See this link [2] for specific commands for your particular operating system.
    3. You will have to disable it while updating your modem, then enable it again at the end.

Disable Wireless[edit]

  1. You must disable wireless during almost any modem firmware changes. Simply logging off your wireless will not work.
    1. Go to Network Connections (Vista: Control Panel->Network and Internet -> Network Connections).
    2. Double click on Wireless Internet Connection and hit Disable at the bottom of the screen.
