Welcome to GeeksToGo,

My name is Cbarnard I hope I may be of some assistance to you.

Please keep in mind this is not our job and I'm not here 24\7. It can take a little bit of time for me to reply back to you,
if it has been more than 48hrs since a reply, please PM me and I will be with you as soon as possible.

With that said lets take a look and get this problem taken care of.

i've downloaded the file at least half a dozen times but it keeps saying invalid path or filename when i hit "upload" what is the reason behind this?


Where exactly are you downloading this file to?

What browser are you using?

Try changing the path you are downloading to... ie, if you are downloading to the desktop, then instead download it to... C:/wgr614v9 as an example. if you place it directly in C:/ , then when you are logged into the router it will be easier to select the file when browsing...

Get back to me with how this works, and I will assist you further...

Good luck
