R7000 firmware update failure

A recent firmware update to my router has now caused the router to be unusable.  I am unable to connect to the router through the admin web page and attempting to reset the device is unsuccessful.  Is there any way to factory reset the router?  It was purchased 13 months ago so it just out of warranty for me to receive any support from Netgear.

Re: R7000 firmware update failure

Check the manual for FACTORY RESET. It used the recessed button on the back.

 

LED lights if 'we' knew what they were might have a better answer. Blinking or not or what is on? Makes a difference. Define 'unusable' also would help.

 

What did you do to attempt a reset? If Factory Reset you might be looking at TFTP process (https://kb.netgear.com/000059634/How-to-upload-firmware-to-a-NETGEAR-router-using-Windows-TFTP) but not everyone has success with that either.
