Default Blinking green light after firmware update failed on WNR3500

Tried to update the firmware on the router via the router's default address (http://192.168.0.1/) and selecting "Update Firmware" after being told there was an update. The router began updating and then a "Page cannot be foud" error came up after the page tried to refesh itself. Now the green power light is blinking and I cannot access the router. I have tried all online resets and power cycle tricks I can find, but none worked. I stopped short of trying tp TFTP the firmware BIN fiel to the router as I read that this will void my warenty. This was done while connected via an ethernet cable...
Any ideas?

Thanks.

Any chance some one can do an idot's guide to TFTPing the firmware for me? The TFTP program I managed to download left me baffled...

Thanks.

I got to the point where my tftp said it transfered my chk file.. Is that supposed to do it? Is there something else I need to do. I have a WNR3500 router. The chk was I uploaded to router is WNR3500L-V1.2.2.40_34.0.48NA... My command window tells me that it transferred all bytes in one second.. but no change in router. Is there something else I need to do? Thank you for your help. I don't want to have to buy a new router but it is looking like that. Again, after my chk file has been tftp-ed to the router, what is my next step.
