R7000P 5Ghz Suddenly stopped working

I've had this router now for just shy of 2 years. Had a few issues about a year in which a firmware update swiftly dealt with and never really had an issue since. Until a few days ago when the 5ghz band completely disappeared, it came back and seemed fine until today when I went to download something and it started at 1mb/s and slowly descended until it hit 0b/s... and sometimes it will not even connect, I use this band ALL the time when downloading games etc. as it gets a much much faster download speed than the 2.4 so I could really do with sorting this issue.

 

I have tried factory resets, multiple firmware's including 3rd party. I've unplugged the whole router and resat it in a different location. Nothing is working.

 

Anyone help with this issue? 

 

TIA

Same issue here... 5Ghz SSID no longer shows up.

 

Netgear wants me to pay for support to troubleshoot. 

 

Shame you on netgear!

 

So frustrated.
