Automatic firmware updating

Your router’s firmware is basically the operating system that is specifically designed to run on your specific make and model of router (unless you are using a multi-router compatible open source firmware such as DD-WRT).

Usually, your router manufacturer will provide firmware updates for your specific make and model of router, via their website, or via a tool within the administrative console of your router (typically accessible via a web browser).

1st generation adapter: The car needs to be running initially to start the update but it will continue to update on the adapter when you turn the car off as long as your phone is still in Bluetooth range. The whole process usually takes about 20-30 minutes of cumulative driving or about 15-20 minutes with the car off and the phone within Bluetooth range.

However, once you update to v0.9.7, subsequent over-the-air firmware updates will only take a fraction of the time (5-10 minutes while driving) and should be much less disruptive to reliability.

Windows Update clients normally download updates over an Internet connection, although Microsoft makes provision for installing updates on computers without an Internet connection and a range of alternative methods and programs also exist to install updates. Security updates or critical updates protect against vulnerabilities to malware and security exploits.

Other updates correct errors unrelated to security, or enhance functionality.

Because updates are cumulative, when you install the latest update, you'll also get all the previous updates if your Surface doesn't have them already.

Only updates that apply to Surface will be downloaded and installed.

The Windows Update Control Panel also has the function of downloading Windows Ultimate Extras, optional software for Windows Vista Ultimate Edition.

There are many reasons you may want to consider updating your router’s firmware, here are several of them.

Security Features and Fixes One good reason why your router manufacturer may put out a firmware update is because they are trying to fix a vulnerability that was detected in the current firmware, updated firmware is similar to system updates (as in Microsoft’s Windows Update).
