How to hard reset my router to default settings?

To perform a factory reset, please follow the steps below.


Step 1: With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back of the unit labeled Reset.



Step 2: Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.

Step 3: The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.

Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults.

Note: The factory defaults username is admin, and there is no password.
