read them several times and then read them again on second thought the router is already toast so no big deal just go slow

 

I used this 3rd party several times without a problem

You're Welcome,

 

How old is router if over a year no support if under a year and registered go MYNETGEAR.com contact support and have it replaced.

 

This is a 3rd party FW NO support from NG

 

download file to desktop and connect router lan port 1~4 to PC ..login and go to update router
