Keeping your Belkin devices' firmware or driver updated

A firmware is a program or set of instructions encoded in a device.  On the other hand, a driver is a type of software that lets a device work with the operating system.  It is recommended that these utilities be regularly updated for the following reasons:
  • There is an updated version of the firmware or driver which contains fixes on software issues found in the previous version.
  • There is an updated version containing new or additional functionalities not present in the previous version.
  • ​​The device is currently experiencing problems in its operational functions (e.g. dropping connections, blinking lights, and undetected device errors).
How can I check for firmware and driver updates?

Firmware and driver updates are regularly posted and available for download on the Belkin Support Site.  The table below shows the type of file you should download according to your device.
