Note : Not all modems are supported by the current firmware, that’s why you need to check Edimax website every now and then to check if there’s a new firmware.

How to get the new firmware:
You can get the firmware from Edimax website under the support section or you can contact our technical support (support@miro.co.za) and ask for the last beta version. When you have the firmware you will get a zip file that you need to extract. In the zip file you will find a file called 3G6200N_EdimaxOBM_X.XX.bin (or similar). The BIN file is the file we need for the upgrade. After you have saved the BIN file you need to open the web page from the router, by default this is 192.168.2.1

After you open this page you need to login with the username “admin” and with the password “1234“. If you have changed the password before you need use the new password and click on OK. snkoo
On the first page of the router you can see the current firmware version. Click on the version to go to the upgrade page.
