After a very long time, I checked the router light and there was no activity. Just a amber poer light with a few other light dimly lit. I’m very careful doing updates and have a UPS supply on the home network. Using the IOS Nighthawk App may not be the best approach to updating, since it is using the network at the time of update,.
I tred using the recommended approach to reload the firmware. The TFTP command returns an error message “can’t read from local file”. I can ping the router so the setup seems to be OK.
I checked the security and sharing and that seems to be OK. I then downloaded the tftp2. The application goes through its process three times. I can see the light for the ethernet port that the computer is connected flashing as the application continues. When finished, the power light on router is flashing. This can happen if the firmware is not where TFTP expects to find it.
Check that the path is correct see below. TFTP is not the easiest trick to perform. It might help to find one of those on-line videos that walks you through the process. Before you try TFTP, in command-line mode, change to the folder that contains the firmware.
Then try TFTP. Where did you put the firmware image file? Where are you? I have unbricked the router. I was doing everything correct except that when I placed the router firmware file on the computer desktop and told the windows tftp executable to change to the desktop folder , it went to another desktop folder under Onedrive. The firmware file did not exist there and it gave me the error message of not being able to open the file.
I only found the issue solution because the tftp2. Under CMD you see very little. It keeps the IT people employed. Just jesting. Very interesting though, after I solved my router issue and set up all the settings, I ran into another problem. The router that I was fixing at home R was from another cottage location.
I had to shut down my home router R to test the R router. My home router would not boot up and get an IP address from Xfinity. I wasted 4 hours today on that problem and it’s fixed. Thanks to everyone for their help with the R Router firmware problem!!
On the R issue, always check if the issue is the modem or router. My router told me that it had no IP address from the modem. There was no resetting modem and router to correct this. After hours of many troubleshooting tries, I called Comcast Xfinity and a great technician connected me to a netgear tech. He asked me to connect the computer to the modem. We connected to Internet.
I then reconnected to router and bingo was on the air on Internet. Where is the problem? Life is too short to deal with this constantly. Booting things in the wrong order. You will then see a list of what is in the active directory.
If the firmware isn’t there, it won’t work without a bit of trickery. It is useful, but not essential, to have the firmware in the working directory. You can include the directory in the tftp command.
If you are in CMD, just type tftp and it will show the commands that you can use and the possible modifiers. You may not need the quotes. They are only there to deal with any possible spaces in the path to the file.

Message 5 of Any help would be appreciated. Message 6 of I assume that you unpacked the firmware from the zip file. You should not need any external software if you have enabled TFTP on your device.
It might also help to try to put the router into recovery mode: Power off router. Press and hold the reset button and power on the router. The power LED become white and blinks steadily.
The device should then be in tftp recovery mode. Message 7 of Message 8 of Message 9 of Thanks for for all your help. I saved a few bucks on an another router.
