I have not tried that, would that require me to disconnect everything and connect to a PC?

With the Z21 service application “Z21 Maintenance” you can configure and update your entire Z21 system via Ethernet or WiFi. With this application you can always keep your Z21, as well as smartRail, WiFi-MULTIMAUS, MULTIMAUS, and Z21 Detector up to date.
Z21_Maintenance_V1.12 (zip - 6.86 MB)



The latest windows Z21 maintenance programme  (V1.30) needs to be d/l from the  ROCO downloads page.

http://www.z21.eu/en/Downloads

Connect your PC wireless to the Z21 router first

Then run the Z21 Maintenance prog and upgrade to 1.30

there is a PDF instruction manual in the V.130 Zip file in German!- the instructions are readily translated with Google.

You can connect PC/laptop (Windows) directly to the Z21 with a network cable for updating firmware

Direct connection without router via patch cable from the Ethernet socket of the PC
directly to the LAN socket on the Z21. This is the most stable connection. By omitting
the router and manual configuration of the PC interface are numerous potential
Problem sources excluded. This type of connection is used for firmware and decoder
Update recommended if unexpected problems occur during the update

here are all the instructions in the 2 PDF files below

download both manuals - the German one has the pictures!
