Hard reset TP-LINK M5350


Posted on July 25th, 2014

Factory reset (Hard reset) The reset button is hidden behind the back cover of this small device. Remove the cover and locate the reset button (hole) at the bottom - see the picture above. With the device powered on, use a pin (paperclip) to press and hold the RESET button (hole) for about 5 seconds - until you see that the OLED screen on the front comes off AND after that displays “TP-LINK”; only then release the button and wait a minute or two while device reboots and restores its factory default settings - password and IP adress.
