Siemens Se587 Wlan DSL firmware update

I have the above Router which is not running the latest firmware. Do I need to update to the latest firmware? If so, please offer any step-by-step guide and any tips.

Thanks in advance

RE: Siemens Se587 Wlan DSL firmware update

its always a good idea to have the latest firmware on a router as its likely not : likely, not definitely) to improve security
However without knowing just why the update was released, none of us here can be sure
One thing is certain though: if the update goes wrong, in most cases the router will only have a future use as a door stop

@Jon S,

Thank you very much for your help. Although I am a tisicali customor, but I do not know their forum well. I have not been there for a while because of the difficulty to search that forum. I did visit their knowledge base, but the answers are very limited.
