How can I reset my R7000 in the State in which I out took it of the box?

How can I reset my R7000 in the State in which I out took it of the box? Why am I asking? The latest version of the firmware has destroyed the connectivity and performance of my router. I'll have to deal with the devices that can not connect, devices that fall, extremely poor performance, etc. It's just a disaster.

I've been with Netgear 5-6 years and had to do something last night, I have never had to do before - I had to go back to an earlier version of the firmware. Honestly, very little worked well. The previous version of the software has a few hiccups here and there, but the new version is just a nightmare.

Now that I have applied even if an earlier version of the firmware, I can still see some of the latest options which were not there before. I have taken note that the firmware was now the prior publication, but the GUI is still the current version.

Just to give a time frame on my Nexus 5 running 802.11ac, prior to the current version, I could peg 90Mbps +. Since the new version, the best I can do standing right next to the router is 24Mpbs +. Even after the restoration of the previous firmware, the speed is always the same.

So, I want to return the router to the shape that when I took it out of the box, apply the previous firmware and reset up if necessary. I want to just my router back prior to the most recent release that destroyed. Once again, that the release had a few hiccups, but it was still usable.

The 30-30-30 reset method works on most routers out there, but not on the R7000...
The correct way to reset your R7000 at the exit of the State of the box is...

Download the original version of Netgear R7000 Support HP http://downloadcenter.netgear.com/en/product/R7000(Firmware Version 1.0.0.96)

Reset and flash back of any Stockfirmware on the original Stockfirmware:

Power on the router
Wait a few seconds
Press Reset for 5-8 seconds max! **
connect to 192.168.1.1
Flash the original FW
now that the router restarts
Wait a few seconds
Press Reset for 5-8 seconds max! **

* After each reboot, the first login on StockFW screen should show something like "refresh the settings or the settings of loading.

Now, it's as out of the Box.

Reset and flash back to any DD - WRT FW to Stockfirmware initial:

Power on the router
Wait a few seconds
Telnet to the router
Run the commands:
'clear the NVRAM '.
'reboot '.
Wait a few seconds
connect to 192.168.1.1
Flash the original Stockfirmware through the Administration tab (if the upgrade fails and the site is not available, try another browser such as Firefox, chrome, safari)
now that the router restarts
Wait a few seconds
Press Reset for 5-8 seconds max! **

* After each reboot, the first login on StockFW screen should show something like "refresh the settings or the settings of loading.

Now, it's as out of the Box.

I have reflashed several R7000 to initial Stockfirmware as the last FW with Beamforming was not stable enough after several days/weeks testing... The FW showed massive connection drops after 24 hours and only a reboot of the router fixed it (tested on 3 x R7000)

The connection has dropped from 1300 to 66-256 after several hours...-. -.

Now I'm waiting a new FW version with corrections of Wifi of Netgear.
