Yes it is possible to completely reflash the router. You'll need to download the latest firmware from Netgear. I would normally recommend advanced users use DD-WRT firmware because it can unlock advanced settings in your router, but DD-WRT does not suppor the WPN824v2.

Here's the latest version of Netgear's firmware for the Netgear WPN824 v2

ONLY FLASH THE ROUTER OVER ETHERNET CABLE!
If you use a wireless connection, you could brick the router.
