What firmware are you attempting to go to?  Are you doing this wired or wirelessly?  What is the status of the router now?

I'm attempting to go to version 8.2 however i've tried the other versions and they don't work either. I have the router wired and i'm unsure what you mean by the status.

You're only supposed to pick the router's hardware version when downloading the firmware (i.e. v8.2's firmware will not work with a v4 hardware). Take a closer look at the router's label, there should be a hardware version there.

What is the version number of the router you have?  It is listed on the bottom.

It says V2.2 on the label but my firmware version on the router page is v4.21.1  so I assumed I could upgrade it to 8.2

No.  You must only use firmware versions for 2.2, nothing else.  Firmware version 4.21.1 is the latest so there is no need to upgrade.
