r7000p power blinking orange

I tried updating via the mobile app multiple times but NEVER worked always said we can not update this firmware at this time. I then went to my computer and tried to update it there, then it had let me update. Mid way through it said connection lost and I went over to the router and it was blinking orange on the power symbol, ever since hasn’t stopped tried resetting, tried turning off and on, tried unplugging, tried unplugging modem and router. Nothing works. Honestly never had such an awful experience with a router, when it was working I had 200 ping when before switching I’d get 30-50. Should have gotten rid of it a long time ago but here I am giving it another chance. If anyone can help please do

   You may be a candidate for the TFTP recovery scheme.  See, for

   Make sure that you get the right firmware kit for your actual model.

Thank you for the quick reply, and as I want to try that resolution I’m not exactly sure how to download that file without wifi... as my router is not working. I tried using hotspot but doesn’t work

   You posted this message here, so you must have some kind of Internet
access.  What's the problem?

> I tried using hotspot but doesn't work

   That tells me nothing, including exactly what you did, and what
happened when you did it.

The R7000P is a router. So there is probably be modem in front of it.

 

If you have something that can plug into the router's wired LAN ports, maybe you can also plug it into the modem's LAN port. The you can get the file and begin the TFTP thing.

 

In any case, you will have to have to use a wired connection to the R7000P to use TFTP.

 

In general, experienced users try to avoid updating firmware over wifi. Too flaky, and likely to kill the thing if anything goes wrong.

Just another user.
