Step 3

Enter the username and password of your device. The default Username and Password are both admin.


Step 4

Usually, on the web-based Utility (Management Page), you can find the firmware information. The build number indicates the released date, the first two or four digits representing the year, next two month and next two day. For example, 120315 means it’s released on March 15, 2012; and 20140924 represents September 24, 2014.
