TG589 router - Reset to factory defaults

Resetting your TG589 router

If at some point you can no longer connect to the TG589 router or you want to make a fresh install, it may be useful to perform a reset to factory defaults.

A reset to factory default settings deletes all configuration changes you made. Therefore, after the reset a reconfiguration of your TG589 router will be needed.

You can choose between:

  • resetting the TG589 router via the web interface
  • resetting the TG589 router via the Reset button

How to reset the TG589 router via the web interface

  1. Browse to the TG589 router web interface.
  2. Click Gateway. The Gateway page appears.
  3. Click Reset.
  4. The  TG589 router restores  the  factory  default  configuration  and  restarts.

How to reset the TG589 router via the Reset button

  1. Make sure the TG589 router is turned on.
  2. Push the Reset button for at least 7 seconds and then release it.

The TG589 router restarts.

Your system administrator may have disabled the physical reset button of the TG589 router. In this case, a hardware reset to defaults is not possible.
