Could you guide me through the process of updating the firmware on my ASUS RT-N10LX Wireless Router?


  • Connect your computer to the router via a wired or Wi-Fi connection.
  • Open a web browser and enter your router’s LAN IP address or the router’s URL to access the Web GUI.
  • Log in with your username and password.

Step 2: Download the Firmware

  • Visit the official ASUS support page and download the latest firmware version for your RT-N10LX router.
  • Save the file to your computer and unzip it if necessary.

Step 3: Update via WebGUI

  • In the router’s Web GUI, look for a pop-up message at the upper right corner indicating a new firmware version is available.
  • Click on ‘Update now’ which will lead you to the ‘Administration -> System’ page.
  • Select ‘Firmware Upgrade’ and upload the firmware file you downloaded earlier.
  • Wait for the upload to complete; this may take a few minutes.

Step 4: Finalizing the Update

  • After the upgrade is finished, you might need to sign in to the Web GUI again.
  • Navigate to ‘Administration’ > ‘Restore/Save/Upload Setting’ > ‘Factory default’ and click on ‘Restore’.
  • Confirm the reset when prompted by clicking ‘OK’. This will start the reset process.

Step 5: Restore Factory Default Settings

  • It’s recommended to restore your router to factory default settings after a firmware update. You can do this by pressing the reset button on the bottom of the router for 5 seconds.
  • Once the reset is complete, set up your router again by following the Quick Internet Setup (QIS) guide available on the ASUS support page.


If you encounter any issues accessing the ASUS server or if the router shows an error, you may need to manually update the firmware using the Web GUI method described above.
