What specific firmware are you on? Which specific firmware do you want to update to?

Do you have any USB drives connected to the router? If you do, safely remove them.

Your firmware is 12+ months old and 9 versions behind. Maybe you'll need to update to an earlier version first.

And make sure you have AX88U and not AC88U firmware, it's a common mistake.

How are you trying to update, and what is the exact error message?

"Check for updates" merely tells you if there is a new version of the currently installed firmware available, it won't know anything about the availability of my firmware.
