Archer C7 Bricked

Help, I was trying to revert my TP-link Archer C7 v5 to the stock firmware using the web interface and I appear to have bricked it.

I followed the steps in this post from anon89577378

I’ve bricked my Archer C7 V5

to try and recover and I get as far as it copying the firmware using tfpt but I get the following error from tftp64 "TIMEOUT waiting for Ack block #29794"

I've tried 3 times and get the same error each time. Any help appreciated

Problem fixed. I had put an unmanaged switch between my laptop and the router as suggested in the post. Once I removed the switch and tried again, the timeout error disappeared and the stock firmware was copied across.
