Hi, I just read a post someone wrote about java apps not running since they installed their wireless-g 2.4 ghz linksys router. The person who replied told them to update their firmware. After that there were no more replies. I think I might have the same problem. What is firmware and how would I go about updating it? Sorry, I am not very computer savvy.

Thanks.

Firmware refers to the controller chip inside a device. This has a flash-type memory which can be written to by means of special software which re-configures the firmware inside the device to correct a problem or to allow the device to perform better, or, in the case of cd-writers, allows them to write at faster speeds. You get the firmware update file from the device maker's website -- usually it's in their 'support' section. Just be sure the firmware update is for your exact model of router, and read any instructions on the web page telling you how to run the update.
usually it's just a case of making sure no other applications are running, then running the downloaded file.
