Using the Reset button

To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the administration password or IP address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router.

  1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the Power LED turns red (about 5 seconds).
  2. Release the Default Reset button. The LED will blink red three times and then turn green when the router has reset to the factory default state. Wait for the router to reboot.
