Software on the ZyXEL web site may well be older than the version that we are using. Here are the details regarding software releases: (Latest first)

- Usually applying the firmware yourself to an AAISP supplied router is not required or recommended. Updates can be applied via the Control Pages. The files are listed above for your information as they also include the release notes.
- Where possible we will request and the GPL'd software used and will add it to the table above, you may request it via ZyXEL GPL Page
- ZyXEL host firmware for this router here: ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/VMG1312-B10D/firmware/
Unzip the downloaded file. Log in to the router's web interface, go to:
Maintenance > Firmware Upgrade
and follow the steps there, you'll be uploading the .bin file.
Control Page options for upgrading software
The control page will show if the current software version on the router and if it is up to date or not. If there is a new software version available then it can be upgraded:
Upgrading when in Bridge mode
When in bridge mode the ZyXEL router will not have access to the internet itself, and so won't have a way to upgrade in this state. To upgrade you need to reset the router by holding in the reset button. This then reverts the config back to our default, it will then log in, upgrade, then log in again and will get a new config sent to it. At that point it will be back to Bridge mode running latest software.
