Restoring the WG302 to the Factory Default Settings

It is sometimes desirable to restore the wireless access point to the factory default settings. This can be done by using the Restore function, which restores all factory settings. After a restore, the wireless access point password will be password, the WG302 DHCP client will be enabled, the default LAN IP address will be 192.168.0.228, and the access point name will reset to the name printed on the label on the bottom of the unit.

To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the login password or IP address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the wireless access point (see Figure 1-2). The reset button has two functions:

To clear all data and restore the factory default values:

  1. Power Off the WG302
  2. Hold the Reset Button down while you Power On the WG302 for 5 seconds.
  3. Continue holding the Reset Button until the LEDs blink twice.
  4. Release the Reset Button.

The factory default configuration has now been restored, and the WG302 is ready for use.
