sgenther,
I did get the upgrade, expanded it into 5 or 6 files.
My question is : How do I upgrade my modem from there, do I copy the files  ?? I am not a technician, waiting for your answer. Thank you

Is one of them a readme file?,or some sort of txt help file? That should help explain "how to" better than I.
