Go to the web site of your router's maker (company) and see what the latest version of firmware has been released for your router model. You should be told how to check and how to install a newer version if it exists.  You can Google the name of your router or refer to your owners manual to find the web site you need.

Most routers have a built-in function to check to see if they are running the latest firmware.  It usually is located in either the set-up or the administration section of the router's web interface.  Some even can be updated from that section.
