Restoring the Default Configuration and Password
This section explains how to restore the factory default configuration settings that reset the router’s user name to admin, the password to password, and the IP address to 192.168.1.1.
You can erase the current configuration and restore factory defaults in two ways:
To use the restore settings button:
1.
2.
Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink.
3.
The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from your Web browser using the factory defaults.
If the wireless router fails to restart, or the Power light continues to blink or turns solid amber, the unit might be defective. If the error persists, you might have a hardware problem and should contact Technical Support at http://www.netgear.com/support.
