NETGEAR Support XSM7224S OPR Code Needed

Received this switch second hand, appears to be EOL. Switch did not come with operational code, images, or backup images and boots straight to Boot Menu.

From my understanding it appears I may need to use a .opr file, but I cannot find where those are hosted.

Can You please provide a download link to be able to upload the opr code via xmodem or usb

 

thanks a lot !

 

yours sincerely

Re: NETGEAR Support XSM7224S OPR Code Needed / Transfer from another Switch

Finally I found a solution - 
I took out the Compact Flash card from another XSM7224S and copied the images manually to the broken one - and it works perfectly !

So if You need the .opr File, it seems to be possible to transfer files directly to the CF-Card of the router.
Its also a good opportunity to change the CR2032 Lithium Battery.
