Most routers have a built-in update checker, which may or may not perform the entire process automatically.
If you're using an Apple Air Port router, you can use the Air Port Utility program to check for updates.
Making the most of the situation, despite my panic, I played with Open WRT for a while, trying to install first dansguardian, then uninstalling dansguardian and trying to install Asterisk completely unsuccessfullyâ€”router was unable to see repositories of download sites.
At this point I realized that even if I was able to install Asterisk I would have to administer it using the command line, not a gui, and overall the setup would be prone to break even if I got it working.
After the 2 minutes is up, if you notice a dialog asking you to reboot the router, do so by unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in again.
If the POWER light on the front of the router is starting to flash, then everything is OK. After 3-4 minutes "Upgrade successful" will come up.
