AC3000 router as access point

Windows 10, r7900 tri-band router, made the mistake of clicking on the box labeled "access point" and now I cannot access the router at all.

I tried resetting it to no avail. How do I gain access to uncheck that box?

   Why?

   How, exactly?  Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model
number, and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Look for
"Factory Settings".

   What, exactly, happens when you try that?  Do the LED indicators
indicate anything interesting?

   You might also try doing the reset with nothing connected to the
router (except its power adapter).

   An actual settings reset should do the job.  Simply restarting the
router wouldn't.

There is a manual for the R7900 somewhere at the end of this link:

Factory reset the thing, see Factory Settings, and reconfigure it from scratch.  

Just another user.
