Is it the Kong build, if so you need to use the .bin file which can be found here..

Dear all,

Dear all,

I also wish to know how to restore back to Netgear's firmware from Kong's firmware. Do I just use the file and in the router (Kong's firmware) do I there do the firmware upgrade with ddwrt-netgear-R9000 or do I do by the link provided by Netgear to restore and then select the ddwrt-netgear-R9000?

For your info. I did try both

For your info. I did try both. But the KOng's firmware is keep getting back. Do I need to do something else? Like after using ddrwt-netgear-R9000 installing an official firmware from Netgear or do a hard resset or ...???

Are you installing ddwrt

Are you installing ddwrt-netgear, or ddwrt-to-netgear, because they are not the same thing. You need to install the latter.

I had tried restoring

I had tried restoring firmware as well on my R8500 by upgrading the firmware to the stock netgear firmware but it keep defaulting back to dd-wrt. Is there something I am doing wrong?
