Just bought a used nighthawk ac1750, & can't do a factory reset

The model is r6700v3. I bought it used, the guy said he installed a 3rd party firmware. I have obviously used the reset button on the back, with no luck. I can't even access the web browser UI. Is there any other way to factory reset it?

You'll have to find out what that firmware is and then ask the people who wrote it for advice on how to get back to Netgear's stock firmware.

 

Netgear does not support "alien" firmware and no amount of pressing the reset button will get you anywhere.
