Login into your router, go to Advanced, on the upper right is an option for Firmware upgrade.

 

To login into your router: 

the address is  192.168.1.1

username and password are on the router label

Ignore the extra characters when entering your password.

A caution: others (myself included) have reported that the firmware update available at ...

 

https://upgrade.actiontec.com

 

... is not necessarily the latest version.  E.g., my router reports the current version as 40.20.1 while the upgrade site reports the available "upgrade" as 40.19.36 ()obviously an earlier version).  I once mistakenly forced the upgrade and messed up things, until I finally reverted to the prior version.

 

I seem to recall that the explanation for this is that the latest firmware is usually pumped by Verizon and not Actiontec, which means all you have to do is let the router itself handle the chores.  Check this thread for more details:

BTW what version are you showing at this time?
