Based on your post, you have an extra NIC doing nothing.

1) Connect this spare NIC directly to the switch

2) Assign an IP address to the NIC (for instance: 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0)

3) Assign an IP address to the switchport at the switch, for instance:

interface fx/x

no switchport

ip address 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0

4) Perform the IOS upgrade by following this URL:

What's preventing you from connecting this computer to a regular switchport?
