Nighthawk R8000 after the firmware update nothing worked anymore

I own the Nighthawk R8000. I wanted to download the firmware update V1.0.4.28 to my router. Actually it should have been finished long ago. The Power-Led now flashed white. Since then the Wlan does not work anymore. I tried to reset the router several times and then load either V1.0.4.28 or V1.0.4.28 onto the router, unsuccessfully. I followed these instructions among other things "https://kb.netgear.com/de/31504/Neuinstallation-der-Router-Firmware-ohne-das-Verwenden-des-CD-Recove...".

   You may be a candidate for the TFTP recovery scheme.  See, for
example:

   You don't need any third-party TFTP client programs for this.

   Too vague.  The TFTP recovery scheme has many steps, with many
user-supplied data.  As usual, showing actual actions (commands)
with their actual results (error messages, LED indicators, ...) can be
more helpful than vague descriptions or interpretations.
