How to Update Starlink Firmware

In this article, we will talk about how to update the Starlink firmware to ensure that your connection remains stable.

Developed by SpaceX, Starlink is a satellite internet service that uses a network of low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites to offer high-speed internet to users worldwide. Starlink aims to bring broadband service to isolated and remote areas that lack access to traditional broadband services.

Even though the service is still under development and is only available for limited users in certain regions, a service like this could transform internet connectivity in rural areas, and remote areas by offering high-speed internet to people without access to the internet. 

Just like other router manufacturers, Starlink releases firmware updates to its router. A firmware update for a router is a software update used to enhance performance, security, and efficiency. A firmware update can fix bugs, add new features, and fix security issues.

Why Starlink Firmware Update is Important

  • Improves performance: A firmware update can enhance speed, safety, and reliability.
  • Fixes security vulnerabilities: Manufacturers might release updates to fix vulnerabilities, hackers might exploit.
  • Adds new features: The router manufacturer may release a software update that adds new features. 

How to Update Starlink Firmware

In most cases, updating the firmware of a router involves downloading the update from its manufacturer’s website and uploading it through the router’s web-based interface. The process of updating the firmware is complicated, and it may result in a malfunction if not done properly. 

But, Starlink firmware versions cannot be manually updated by users. It is Starlink that pushes all updates. Starlink software updates are usually rolled out in batches, so not all users will receive updates at once. Moreover, not all updates will be available to all users.
