1. Sign up for Minim Labs

First, you'll need to go to my.minim.co/labs and sign up for your free Minim Labs account.

2. Download Minim opensource firmware

Second, you'll need to download the Minim opensource firmware: click here

(Take note of where the .bin file is saved, as this will be needed in step 4.)

3. Install firmware, part 1

Third, you'll need to flash your GL-B1300 with the Minim firmware by initiating and accessing the bootloader:

1. Push down the Reset button (the left outermost button on your GL-B1300, pictured below) and power on

2. Wait about 10 seconds, until the 2 left outermost LEDs stop flashing

3. Configure your IP address with the following settings:

IP Configuration on Mac

IP Configuration on Windows

Upon applying this configuration, the bootloader web user interface should appear:

 (If this does not appear, simply unplug your router, plug back in, and repeat step 3 again.)

4. Install firmware, part 2

Now that the GL-B1300 bootloader has been initiated and accessed, it's time to install: 

1. Select Choose File and locate the firmware .bin file that was previously downloaded in step 2— upload this to the GL-B1300 bootloader and select Update Firmware

2. Wait between 1-3 minutes for the Flash process to complete, until the WiFi LED on your GL-B1300 stops flashing and turns off. In some instances, this process may take longer.

3. Re-configure your IP address back to DHCP or your preferred settings:

IP Configuration on Mac

IP Configuration on Windows


5. Register your device with Minim

Once steps 1-4 are complete, you will need to register your Minim-enabled GL-B1300 with Minim:

1. Log in to the Minim Labs portal, my.minim.co/labs (If you are brought back to the Minim Labs signup page, scroll down and select Already Registered? to be directed to the login page.)

2. Select Add new Unum-enabled router

3. Enter your GL-B1300's MAC address and select Submit


6. Access your device in the Minim Labs portal

After selecting Submit, you will be redirected back to your Device Provisioning dashboard, where you will find your GL-B1300 router under "Your Networks".

Selecting your router will bring you to your GL-B1300 LAN's Overview page. We highly recommend that you visit the "Router Settings" tab to edit your router's SSID / passphrase:

SSID - This is your WiFi network name of choice

Passphrase - This must be at least 8 characters
