R 8000

firmware update didnt complete.it asked me to cancel so I did.  Now router will not power on all the way and I cant connect to router at all with phone or computer. White light at top of unit blinks and thats all it does. Not sure what to do next. I tried using the reset switch on back of unit with no results. Not sure how to complete firmware update on unit if I cannot connect to it in any way.

Re: R 8000

You can try recoving it with tftp or nmrpflash.  

are 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 

https://www.thewindowsclub.com/enable-tftp-windows-10

 

and here's a video walk through using a tftp client. Use the built in one for windows 10 though. the video is more of an example of how its done.

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

That's odd.Where did you see that?

 

All the updates throw up warnings in big shouty letters that say something like:

 

DO NOT INTERRUPT A FIRMWARE UPDATE

 

 

Just another user.

Re: R 8000

It said it on my phone. Said the update couldnt be completed. Do u want to cancel? So i did. Assuming everything would be okay. NOT! So i got another router. Downloaded the latest firmware. Awful! Cuts out constantly. Terrible!!!! Even stuff directly hooked to router. Just cut out. It will show no signal.
