how do i obtain cisco 857W router firmware 3.0.10

I have created a cisco username and password.
I have looked on the Cisco site for an indication of the firmware required. (version 3.0.10) I cant seem to get to a link that allows me to download the software.

I am very new to Cisco Systems Routers.
I have a Cisco 857 W and from what i have been able to ascertain, the current firmware is incorrect, as it will not allow 'no ip dhcp use vrf connected' to pass the command line interpreter. the command falls over at 'vrf' as there is no such subcommand in the commands available in the routers firmware.

I was told that 3.0.10 solves this problem, but i need to be able to download a binary image from somewhere.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

it would be the ios that would be incorrect. and 3.0.10 isn't a cisco ios number... 12.3(10) would be what they meant...
12.4(15)T9 is current - which is what I would go for

you can't download ios upgrades unless you have bought support for your router (but its relatively cheap anyway).
this also gives you a hardware failure warranty and access to TAC.

once you have bought the contract and added it to your account you will have access to cisco downloads.

hope I've helped..
