My router has corrupt firmware, would doing a reset to start all over again fix the firmware? Not sure of how to reinstall the new firmware if the old corrupt firmware is still in place. HELP
A factory reset won't fix corrupt firmware. You need to do TFTP to recover: https://kb.netgear.com/000059633/How-to-upload-firmware-to-a-NETGEAR-router-using-TFTP-client

What makes you think its corrupt? Details help.
A reset only removes settings, it doesn't reinstall the firmware.
You'd actually need to install the firmware back on it to overwrite the bad firmware (if it is actually corrupt).
