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

Re: R7000P

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). 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->
