Netgear R7000P

My Netgear router has worked well for the past 2 years. However it suddenly will not connect to my modem and all even with an ethernet cable connecting them it does a short boot sequence and then stops giving an amber light on the power and a white light on the wifi. All others are dark. Any help on fixing it would be greatly appreciated, as power cycling and factory resetting are doing nothing.

Re: Netgear R7000P

Potentially it could be a couple things. 

1. power supply. You could try a different power supply. If you have one that has matching voltage and AT LEAST the same amperage, you can use that. they're tough to test becuase there isn't a way to put a power supply under load for the average user. 

2. it could be a corrupt firmware issue. Potentially you could fix it with tftp or nmrpflash. 

re 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.

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

3. It could be a bad firmware version. If you're able to flash it, you can always try an earlier version of the firmware. 

4. It could be a hardware failure. Sadly it does happen.

Re: Netgear R7000P

I am unable to access anything it is almost as if my router doesn't exist. It is registered but because of it being bought 2 years ago the warranties are expired. I cannot access routerlogin either.

Am I able to do that on an android mobile phone? My laptop currently is out of commission.

Re: Netgear R7000P

tftp and nmrpflash need to be hardwired into to use. As far as I know, its windows/mac only.
