   Too terse.

 

   "will not" is is not a useful problem description.  It does not say
what you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions (commands) with their actual results (error
messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.

With the way that the Netgear firmware has been for the last year, I would say if the router is working then do not update as you could very well introduce unwanted issues.

Try downloading the firmware file onto your computer, unzip it, and log in to the router using your browser.  Go to Advanced/Administration/Router Update.  Where it says "Locate and select the upgrade file on your hard disk." tap on Browse, navigate to where you saved the unzipped firmware and select the .chk file.  Then tap on Upload. 

 

Less chance of a bit going wrong during transmission of the file.  Also, you've now got the new firmware saved in case you need it again later.
