V1.0.0.76_1.0.1.zip Firmware update unzips as *.chk file

Hello,

     My Modem/Router is a Nighthawk D7000v2 AC 1900 WiFi VDSL/ASDL. I'm running Win 10, current update.

I'm trying to install new firmware listed on https://kb.netgear.com/000064348/D7000v2-Firmware-Version-1-0-0-76    shown as last updated 11/05/2021.

     I have tried to update through the router login and the Netgear Genie and the update was not found.

     I tried downloading from https://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/D7000v2/D7000v2_V1.0.0.76_1.0.1.zip and opening with Microsoft and also 7-Zip and the firmware extracted as a *chk file identified as Recovered File Fragments and an online file with the download link, again, same file. So, could not do an install of firmware from computer file.Capture.GIF

 

     I can get stuck on the stupid stuff, but I did extract the files and tried everything from the top after restarting the computer and turned off the anti-virus  & firewall turned.

     I would really appreciate any help, or is this a bad file?

                                            Thank you!!!

                                             : )

The .chk file is the new firmware

 

Get the manual for your router and read the bit Manually Upload New Firmware and Update the Modem Router

 

Or read this:

The best way to do this is with a browser on a wired connection to a PC .

tyvm

  Yesterday when I extracted .chk file, it went extracted to another folder & cloud. Woman Sad   Yea,  that's why it wasn't installing with router manual interface.

     Followed your directions & it worked from download file extraction.... big DUH

                                  Thanks again!
