Considering the routeur has already been flashed to OpenWRT, I wonder that a factory reset will only erase the configuration parameters od OpenWRT.
What do I have to to togo back to the Linksys firmware ?
Don’t erase OpenWRT, with DDWRT chances are you get unstable WiFi on iOS devices. This router has two partitions, meaning you can install two OS on It. You may have the Linksys stock firm on the other partition.
My recommendation is that you investigate a little longer and try to get DDWRT on the other partition so you can try both.

Thank you for your replies
I even did not know that WRT1900ACS has 2 partitions. I will look at the way I can boot on the other to see if it is the Linksys one.
I have no Iphone so IOS connection is not a very important issue.
I am particulay interested in the fact DD_WRT does support the killswitch application of NordVPN

Be SURE to read the "Cliff Notes" sticky post near the top of this (Marvell) forum. THAT is your basic guide, not some undated old post about the WRT1900AC. The AC and ACSv2 are significantly different, so take care which firmware file you flash. Ignore the router database. Do not flash 40559, as it has problems. I suggest you go with 44048, which is about two months old now. More recent builds are going through some bugginess with wifi drivers. Get in the habit of reading over a build's new-build thread before flashing it. There's a forum thread currently extant where the OP picked a build at random and flashed without reading and happened to pick up the one build of the year capable of bricking his router. Don't be that guy!
