Example, you’ve downloaded the latest Asus RT-AC56U firmware and want to check that the file is genuine. Copy the MD5-hash from the website. https://www.asus.com/Networking/RTAC56U/HelpDesk_BIOS/

echo 'b32190074e2133b8f6d779f3d6c779ef Downloads/RT-AC56U_3.0.0.4_382_51641-g46d2311.trx'|md5sum -c

You’ll get an OK if the file is genuine.
