Firmware download has broken link. Cannot get download

Long story short,  I had a failed Factory Reset.  router lights up but there is no internet connection so cannot log into the router.

 

Want to try this solution:  https://kb.netgear.com/000059633/How-to-upload-firmware-to-a-NETGEAR-router-using-TFTP-client

but the link to the firmware is broken.  I went to the TFTP website ( https://www.tftp-server.com/tftp-client.html)  and now unsure which file if any is useable.    Seeking expert help from the community.

Re: Firmware download has broken link. Cannot get download

thank you.  This seems workable.  I didn't know it was built into Windows 10.  Thanks

If you're using windows, it has a built in client that you enable.

Firmware can be found at 

https://www.netgear.com/support/

Put in your router model and you well be taken to a location where the firmware is as well another very important document, the user manual.

thanks Bill,  for clairification, I can access the firmware, what I am not able to download is the TFTP client I need to update the firmware.

Re: Firmware download has broken link. Cannot get download

If you are using either windows or mac you have a built in tftp client. No download needed. 

Here is an idea of how.
