Netgear Nighthawk R8000 updated firmware and I get error messages when trying to open a webpage

I just updated the firmware of my router yesterday.  Prior to the update, I was not have connectivity problems.  Now, using Chrome, I try to open a webpage and I get this message, This site can’t be reached


247sports.com’s server IP address could not be found.


  • Checking the connection
  • Checking the proxy, firewall, and DNS configuration
  • Running Windows Network Diagnostics
    When I run the Windows Network Diagnostics, I get the following message.


     Your DNS server might be unavailable
    Windows can’t find the host name "www.downloads.netgear.com" using DNS.
    Contact your network administrator or Internet Service Provider
    The DNS server may be experiencing problems. Windows Help and Support can provide more information about DNS.


    If I wait 10-15 seconds or refresh the page, it might open.  


    I contacted me ISP who did troubleshooting on their end, and they suggested it could be the router.  I've unplugged the router, waited a minutes and plugged it back in.  I've cleared the history in Chrome and this did not solve the problem.  I am having the same issues on two other laptops.  


    Does anyone know how I can fix this?  Thank you in advance.
