January 25, 2013, By Daniel Rapcencu

You might just have a need to reset your router to its defaults.  This may happen if you router stops working, freezes or just because you have forgotten the password.

The two most common methods of resetting your router are:

Method 1

Power off the router.

Press and hold the reset button.

Power on the modem.

Wait until the modem recycles and the self test completes.

Release the reset button.

 

Method 2

Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds or until the router starts to restart.

Once your router has been set to the default settings, you will need to know the default IP address and the username password combination.  Here are the most common defaults for various router manufacturers.
