RBR50 Smart Parental Control Revert


RBR50 Smart Parental Control Revert

I recently saw a button message to upgrade from Circle to Netgear's smart parental control on my RBR50 Orbi. So I clicked it and after the reboot, now I see no parental controls menu option. I determined that this feature was not supported on the model and now I would like to revert back to using Circle. How do I get my Circle back on the router? Does this call for a factory reset?

Netgear has set up a community forum specifically for the Circle product. Most of the people who watch that forum are more likely to have experience with Circle and know how to work it better than those of us who follow this "general Orbi" forum. Might be more likely to find someone who has a solution if the question is posted there:
