hi..I want to upgrade the firmware on my wireless router....It say's it is best to plug in the ethernet lead, because if the signal drops during the upgrade it will wreck the router, having never use the lead, I have plugged it into the router and the laptop, the thing is, nothing changed, how do i know if it connected by the lead..hope that makes sense..

thanks

I think you have to uninstall the wireless network and setup the new one using only the wired solution.

You don't need to uninstall the wireless connection,just go to show all connections and disable it temporarily while you plug in the lead in order to configure the wired LAN.

Afterwards,you can disable the wired LAN and go back to your wireless again.
