Trying to go back to previous version of firmware

After upgrading to the latest firmware i am having major troubles with my router/modem and i want to return to the version before.

i have downloaded the firmware version i want and unzipped the file which saves it to my computer as an IMG just like the website says (pic1)IMG_4767.JPG

then when i start the upgrade i get and error which states it has the wrong file type.(pic 2)IMG_4768.JPG

Any suggestions please?

 

Thanks in advance

Model: D7000|Nighthawk AC1900 VDSL/ADSL Modem Router

Re: Trying to go back to previous version of firmware

Are you sure you have a D7000 and NOT a D7000 V2? The V2 requires a .CHK file.

 

See https://www.netgear.com/support/product/D7000v2.aspx#Firmware%20Version%201.0.0.52 for firmware if you do have a V2 version of the D7000.

Thank you. The box only states it’s a D7000 but after logging into the router it is in fact a v2
