Factory reset (Hard reset) Locate the reset button on the back panel - a small hole to the left of the Power ON/OFF button. Use a thin object like a paper clip to push and hold the button for at least 7 seconds. Release and wait for the router to reboot. IMPORTANT: The default wireless network name (SSID) and password are unique for each of the routers of this model - you can find the name and password on the label on the bottom of your router.
