I have downloaded an .img file to my hard drive, so that I may upgrade my router firmware.

 

The file type does not appear to be listed in "chose image".

 

Can anyone suggest a solution to my problem, please?

 

 

Is it a Optical disc image format, what is the file extension?

 

What application in the Creator 2010 Suite are you using?

An ‘img’ file is not a normal extension for any disc image file…

 

Better recheck your download page and see what their instructions say.

 

If you would post a link to that page, someone here would be happy to look at it.

Wiki says here,

 

The IMG file format is one of the following files:

 

1. A CD or DVD image file, essentially equivalent to an ISO file. On such a file, simply changing the extension from IMG to ISO can make it usable as the latter by most programs.

2. An archive format used for creating a disk image of floppy disks and HDDs. This allows for digital storage, transmission, and replication of floppy disks and HDDs. Files created using this format typically use the ".IMG" file extension.

3. A file in the Macintosh Disk Image format used by Aladdin Systems (now Allume Systems) ShrinkWrap and Apple Disk Copy for Mac OS although they share the same file extension.

4. The IMG file format, also known as GEM IMG, is an image file format used to store bitmap digital images on Graphical Environment Manager.

5. A graphics image format used in various ways by many different graphics software packages.

 

Perhaps changing the extension from .IMG to .ISO as in para #1 might help you.

.img is also a file produced by a certain app which I won't mention - but it's used to 'rip' commercial discs.

 

You say you downloaded the file - what is it?

Relax, it seems hardly likely to be piratical. :)

Good diagnosis Should have thought of the builder's saying, "when all else fails, read the plans".

New Forest,

 

Please tell us the result of 'reading the plans' or drop a link to the firmware upgrade [or the router model number] as there's a spirited discussion going on, both in this topic and behind the scenes, about the nature of the .IMG file. :)

 

 

Thanks very much,

Brendon

That's fine for you :) but we can't get at it to see, since we don't have Netgear routers registered with the Company.

 

To satisfy our burning curiosity, would you please tell us what sort of file the .IMG was?

-did you have to burn it to a CD or a floppy disc, or was it just a binary file used by the firmware flasher?

 

Cheers,

Brendon

"Burning issue" I like that

 

It was a disk image file, but sometimes it can be a .bin

 

To deal with you have to follow Netgear's procedures as all needed is in the router's s/ware.

 

1. Download and unzip the new software file..
2. Log in to the modem router at its default LAN address.
3. From the Main Menu of the browser interface, under the Maintenance, select the Modem Router Upgrade heading
4.Click the Browse to locate the binary (.BIN or .IMG) upgrade file. 
5. Click Upload.
