Re: Router firmware update without Nighthark app.

Try logging into your router using your  browser. This link should help with that.

   That's hard to say.  Has your (unspecified) "my router" a model
number?  Look for "Model" on the product label.  With that datum in
hand, you might try the obvious:

 

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RTFM

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual (at least).  Read.  Look for
"firmware"?  Generally:

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Downloads.  (For older versions, under Firmware and Software
Downloads, look for "View Previous Versions".)  Find the kit(s).
Download the kit(s) you want.  Read the "Release Notes" file for
instructions.  (In the User Manual, look for "firmware", and,
especially, for a topic like "Manually Upload Firmware to the Router".)
When that fails because of a deficient User Manual, try:
