When I open a browser to Web Administration and log into the router under the System Tab Firmware I see that the router firmware version 6.0.3 No Update Available. If click on the Check Again button I get the same exact screen back stating 6.0.3 No Update Available. How do I update to 6.1.2?
6.1.x firmware has not been yet added to our firmware server. Here is a link to our 6.1 upgrade guide along with a link for 6.1.2 firmware.

Thank you. I’ll just wait until the upgrade hits the firmware server.
Been trying to do a manual update and keep getting a “can’t connect to the server” message
Can you provide a screen shot on this?
Sorry, when I retried it to get screen shot, the update went through
I still have the same problem. See attached screen shot. I tried to down load the file and cannot open the .BIN file. I do not know what I am doing wrong.
- Download this file to your desktop or download folder
2.In your dashboard, click “choose file”. Find the file you downloaded, highlight it and click OK
- When the file appears in the “no file chosen” box—it may take a few seconds, click on “manual upgrade” and let it do its thing

Thanks to all who help. Now that I understand the .BIN extension I down loaded 6.1.2 and it worked perfectly. I was never down and out in that the old firmware still worked but now one of my most valuable electronic tools is now current. I’m a work camper and several of us depend on my air card and the Surf Solo. I and my fellow work campers are now more “happy campers”. When I first bought this Surf Solo I had no idea what a fine product I was obtaining.
