I am trying to update my WRT54G v6 router. I go on the site and download the firmware but either I have no idea what to do with the firmware, which is very plausible, or the firmware download itself is messed up, which i doubt.
Could someone please help me I have never used a .bin file before and have no idea what to do with it
Thanks in Advance

Try to upgrade the router's firmware using TFTP utility.Download the TFTP utility and save it on the computer.
Follow these steps to upgrade the firmware on the device : -
Double click the TFTP.exe file and click run.For Server- Enter the IP Address of the router that you assigned. By default, the router is 192.168.1.1...For Password- Enter the password you assigned the router. By default, the router’s password is “admin”.For File- Click the triple “…” button and browse for the .bin firmware file...Click Upgrade button to start upgrading. A progress bar should show up to show the progress.
Once the Upgrade is done press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds...Release the reset button...Unplug the power cable from your router, wait for 30 seconds and re-connect the power cable...Now re-configure your router...

I am told by time warner that since my laptop works fine off the modem I need a firmware upgrade on my router. How do I do that if I have a wrt54g. Your website says get it at http://192.168.1.1/ and that goes nowhere.

Welcome to the Cisco Home Community.
Go here http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G and select the Downloads Tab.
Pick the firmware version of your router and download the latest firmware.
Hardwire your computer to your router and point your browser to 192.168.1.1
From there, you can upgrade your routers firmware.
