NigthHawk Firmware failure

Night hawk does firmware update and fails- no inrternet- no access to the router software via either ethernet cable, wiFi or app.

Hard reset does not work.

Power cycle does not work.

Technical support have no clue.

Unit is about 2 years old was working perfectly fine no issues until the manufacuterer decided to update the firmware.

So it is out of warrantee and unless I purchase a support 'thingy' Netgear refuses to help.

Looks like another one of these scams to make money.

Re: NigthHawk Firmware failure

What are the leds on it doing? 

What firmware were you updating to?

You can try recoving it with tftp or nmrpflash.  

are you on windows? if so, follow this guide

https://kb.netgear.com/000059634/How-to-upload-firmware-to-a-NETGEAR-router-using-Windows-TFTP

 

just make sure you enable tftp

and here's a video walk through using a tftp client. Use the built in one for windows 10 though. the video is more of an example of how its done.

and if that doesn't work, you can try using nmrpflash
