If you are updating the MSS from a version older than 5-16-05, a Compass Calibrate must be done once this update is loaded.

If your MSS is working properly, follow the normal update procedure, described below.

The Hughes 6000 Modem firmware is incompatible with MSS software dated 7-27-05 and earlier.

Before the update, if your MSS page says "The page cannot be displayed" after it says "Reading Modems," follow this update procedure:

Download the update from the web. To perform this update, you will need to turn everything off. Disconnect your modem from the router. Turn on only the MSS and the router and your computer. Run update.bat. Once the update is complete, reconnect the modem and turn it on.
