Speedtouch 716WL software upgrade

Hello, can anyone tell me if the speedtouch 716wl can be upgraded over ethernet after changing the default subnet and IP address on the router ie. from 192.168.1.254 to 192.168.10.1.
I get an error whilst trying to upgrade from the shipping version (v5) to 6.2.

Thanks for your help in advance

Sorted

Ok I have sorted this out. You cannot upgrade without the default subnet and address on the 716WL.

Here are the steps to upgrade
1 - Backup your config
2 - Restore factory defaults
3 - Set your PC a static IP address in the correct subnet for the default (192.168.1.254) on the speedtouch.
4 - Upgrade
5 - Restore config
6 - Set your PC to aquire IP via DHCP.
