Reset factory defaults

Resetting your Technicolor TG589 router

If at some point you can no longer connect to the Technicolor 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 Technicolor TG589 router will be needed.

You can choose between:

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