The .bin file is a binary image file of your router's firmware. It is used "as is". You do not need to unzip it or execute it. It will be copied directly into your router. In the router's setup pages, you can use the firmware upgrade page to update your router's firmware.
After a firmware upgrade, you must reset the router to factory defaults, then setup the router again from scratch. If you saved a router configuration file, DO NOT use it.
