Wifi6 Nighthawk Firmware update keeps failing

Hi all! 

Tried updating the available firmware update last night, and it failed multiple times. 

Looking for a solution that doesn't include resetting my router to factory defaults.  

R,

Jim

I wouldn't use the app. Its where we see the most issues with corrupt firmware. I'd recommen doing it over a hardwired connection.

Re: Wifi6 Nighthawk Firmware update keeps failing

are you updating using the automatic update feature? 

Or are you trying to manually update it? (I'd recommend doing it manually and doing it over a hardwired connection)

I’m currently using the Netgear app to update.
