I upgraded my R7450 router today to the newest firmware and it bricked. I've tried the TFTTP2 method however this just fails when I try to upload the firmware (tried the newest one and an older one). Any suggestions?

probably not what you want to hear, but throw it away and get a gen6 802.11ax router

^^^ perfect

I'm not sure debricking is actually a thing

Seems like trying to revive a human from dead.

How bricked are you?

Did you try holding the reset button in the back for >5 seconds?

Apparently Netgear has solutions via TFTP. Check their support site.

Kinda sucks because I just bought the damn thing this past November, but the 2.4GHz network kept dropping over the past month so I guess the writing was on the wall. Oh well, should've known better, I've never had good luck with netgear products.
