    Have you tried rebooting the router ? There might be a button to do that. Or you can do it from the administration page (192.168.1.1) : System Tools > Reboot.

    There's a PDF file in the zip describing the steps to update your firmware, called "How to upgrade TP-LINK ADSL Modem Router (TrendChip Solution).pdf". Did you read it and follow them ?

    Here is the link to TP-Link support forum : Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Routers
    I think you should open a thread there, they might have more information for you since the update didn't seem to work.

    Do you think it's necessary to restart with the default factory settings?
    because when I arrive at Step 4 I found that nothing has changed, therefore, I thought there's no need to restart with the default factory settings.How to upgrade TP-LINK ADSL Modem Router (TrendChip Solution).pdf

    Some manufacturers provide the same version on their site, that is on the disc. I had the WR-1043ND and that was the case. So, unless they release a firmware update to address a specific detrimental security threat, you may never see another firmware update, or it may take awhile.

    so, there's no need to reboot after all my tries with default factory settings?

    Once you've selected the default factory settings, save your settings. Reboot. Done.
