Is anyone else having this issue? at first it would tell me that i was unable to connect. I tried a reset: settings>general>reset>reset network settings
now i get incorrect password. i know my password is correct, typed it in slowly the third time to make sure i input correctly.

Don't feel bad, I get that very often at work. Never seems to be a problem on my home network. I have found that if it fails to connect, I can usually just hit cancel and it will connect later. If I press the issue I will have to re-type my password.

I have fios and when it installed a bunch of links on my laptop for troubleshooting when I first got it. You should check any preinstalled links your internet provider put on your computer when you installed the modem - or try going to your internet provider's website. Usually they have a list of all the modems that are used to access the internet and may have info on any available upgrades to the software for each modem.

As "RedChirp" said, from your browser go to:
192.168.1.1, you may have to type in your Admin. user name and password. Also make sure you are connected to your router. My DSL Modem has that same address and I changed the router's address to a different address. But since the router is the 1st device your computer sees it should be your router. Go through the tabs.
On my Linksys E3000 it is under the Administration Tab. I just hit the "Firmware Update tab, it asked if I really wanted to do this and I said yes and everything was automatic. Once the update was finished, the router rebooted.
I think I had to go back and set the router up again but that would be the same as when you first set the router up.
