I flashed my TP-Link Router with DD-WRT, but it's been buggy. How do I go back to the stock firmware???

I flashed my TP-LINK Archer C5 AC1200 Ver 1.20 ,with DD-WRT, but it's been buggy for me, after toying with the Qos settings a little. I reset the router and thought that would calm things down, but it did not. How do I go back to my original router firmware? I have some tech knowledge , but easy instructions would be appreciated.

Thanks I will try it tomorrow. I reset my modem and everything may have settled down,( I was losing connection.) When it works, Qos seems to work well. I have a Sonos Connect, Roku, and Apple TV that I wanted to give
priority to on my network. Each is connected via ethernet.

Did you make sure you followed all the directions like clear NVRAM? (USed to have to do this). Are you using a stable version of DD-WRT too? I suppose you could go back and always try it later.

Vague questions receive vague answers . . . . . .
What version of DD WRT are you running? The 3.x kernel builds are all beta I believe, though I've had luck running the later ones.

From what I've heard (I don't have one, so I've never tried it) OpenWRT is also a decent option with the C5/C7:

I like Tomato firmware
