NetGear R6200v2, Roku tricked me into changing my MAC address, now no WiFi except on ROKU

So now, without the internet, I cannot get back NetGear on the Web to change my MAC address. If I knew what to change it back to. I have tried the reset button. It seems to do nothing. Any ideas?

   Huh?  Presumably, you, personally, do not have a MAC address.
Whose MAC address did you change?  Why, exactly?  Was there some actual
problem which you were trying to solve?  What, exactly, did you do?
What, exactly, happened when you did it?  How is your (unspecified) Roku
box involved?  What can that device do which some other (unspecified)
device can't?

 

   To what is your R6200v2 connected?  What do its LED indicators
indicate?  Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.

   Non sequitur.  You don't need an Internet connection to configure
your R6200v2.  Consult the R6200v2 User Manual.


   If questions or problems remain, then try to explain what you're
doing, and what happens when you do it, rather than what you think it
all means.  As usual, showing actual actions with their actual results
(error messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.

   "tried" _what_, exactly, with the reset button?  Look for "Factory
Settings" in the R6200v2 User Manual.
