How to update HG556a firmware?

Hi,

My current Software version is 'V100R001C12B017'.
I have downloaded lastest version 'HG556aV100R001C12B037.bin', whose size is 10.3MB.

I go to, Home > Support/Settings > Update, whose url is http://192.168.1.1/en_US/basic/firmware.htm

But actually, it should used for update setting?
It says 'Update Vodafone DSL Router settings. You may update your router settings using a previously saved files.The size of the file must not be larger than 150KB'
The firmware is much bigger than 150KB.

If I click update settings, it will return error message "Image uploading failed. The selected file contains an illegal image."


So, how to update?
Any help?
Thanks in advance.

You should be logging into the modem using the advanced menu

User name = advanced
Pass word = advanced

Thanks John~
I have updated it to the latest firmware.

But, next question, how to share the hard driver using USB?
My hard driver is 1TB Seagate, external, NTFS.

I see its light is on and running sounds.
But in \\192.168.1.1\Share, I only can see very small files about 30MB.

Any hints?
