Can I firmware upgrade a netgear router without being able to ping?

My netgear r6300 router has a blinking power light. I tried to reset it but to no avail. I have then tried to do a firmware upgrade using TFTP. However I am unable to ping the router. I also tried to force fully give it an ip by using the arp -s command in dos prompt using the MAC ID of the router, but to no avail.
