You can use this TFTP server.  http://www.solarwinds.com/products/freetools/free_tftp_server.aspx
Install it on any computer, noting the IP address of that computer.
Download the new firmware to that computer and store it in the root of that TFTP server, noting the EXACT name of the file.
From the switch do the following inputing the IP of the TFTP server:
#copy tftp start
Put in the IP addy of the server and then the exact file name for the firmware.
It will be stored in the Startup and when the router is rebooted it will load the new firmware.
