R7000 Nighthawk Not Functioning and Won't factory reset
I have an R7000 AC 1900 WiFi Router and all of a sudden it is no longer working. It turns on but that's about it. Lights are blinking correctly. Wifi is on but will not accept any connections, cannot browse to the web interface. I am not sure if the firmware had auto update and it got corrupted. Things I've tried WITHOUT success:
1. Factory Reset 30/30/30 method. - Doesnt work
2. TFTP to upload the newest firmware as per https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-WiFi-Routers/R7000-Nighthawk-Won-t-factory-reset/td-p/149... - I get a ping response (about 2 times after 15 seconds) but TFTP connection always fails (have tried 50+ times).
Any other way to reset this router?

Is there a modem in front of this thing?
Is it working OK?
What firmware version do you have on the device?
A number is more useful than "the latest". (It may not be by the time people read this.) There can also be newer versions, or "hot fixes", that do not show up if you check for new firmware in the browser interface.
It might also help if you told people what the modem is in front of this router.
