Netgear NightHawk R8000 Wifi not working Yellow warning

Hello everyone and Merry Chrismas. So while cleaning up my desk, I turned off my Nighthawk and when turning it on The wifi does not work.

All ethernets ports are working, and I can use my desktop for the internet.Also when I connect to my IP network genie thing, it says wifi Off with a yellow warning thing ( pictures ) 

Things I've done

Rest my router many times

I held the button to rest for 7 sec and it rest everything

   What do the LED indicators indicate?

   Operate the "WiFi On/Off button with LED"?

   Visit http://www.netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and
look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Look for "Top View".

   And all of your old settings were lost (including the SSID and
passphrase credentials)?  I'd expect that to re-enable the wireless
radios.  Under ADVANCED > Advanced Setup > Wireless Settings, are all
the "Enable Wireless Router Radio" boxes checked?

   I'd expect the BASIC > Home status to agree with the LEDs.  If they
did not, then I'd try a full ("factory") reset.  But, if you actually
do that, and the thing stays inconsistent, then you might have a
hardware problem.

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR. DOWNGRADE THE FIRMWARE TO 1.0.3.54 THE PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVED. UNTIL NETGEAR FIXES IT UP
