How to Hard Reset Your Router

Hard reset TP-LINK TL-MR3420


Posted on August 21st, 2013

Factory reset (Hard reset) Power ON the router. Locate the reset button (or hole) on the rear panel - it should be labeled WPS/RESET or just RESET. Press the button for about 5 seconds (but not for less than 5) - the SYS LED should start blinking faster. When this happens - release the button. Wait for the router to reboot

PS. For older versions of this model you might need a thin object to press into the button hole - try using a paperclip. The SYS LED is on the front panel and looks like a small gear icon.
