Firmware for R7000 download

I want to update the firmware on my R7000 router.  I downloaded version V1.0.11.110_10.2.100.zip  When I try to unzip the file, Windows reports failure - the folder is empty.  Windows also reports the file to be 29.033 KB  What am I doing wrong?

Re: Firmware for R7000 download

I just tried downloading it and extracting it and it came out fine.

Do you have a different device or browser to try? 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->

   "try to unzip the file" _how_, exactly?  Right-click on the zip
archive file (in File Explorer), and select "Extract all..." to extract
the files in the zip archive.

   Plausible.  The exact size is 29729578 bytes.  (And 29729578/1024
rounds to 29033.)

   What, exactly, are you doing?

I am doing exactly what I have done many times before.  I right click on the .zip file and then select unzip from the resulting window.  Windows 10 responds with the folder is empty.unzip.jpg
