Perform a Master Reset via hardware

Please note: performing a master reset will delete all personal configuration settings on your router and will also restore the web-based management settings to their default values.

  1. Turn the router so the bottom is facing upwards
  2. Using a paperclip or pen, press and hold the Reset button for approximately 5 seconds
  3. The router will restart automatically

The factory default settings will now have been restored.
