Restoring to the default factory setting your Linksys router can be done in two ways. The first one is through the reset button found in the router while the other is through the browser. Some of us have our own reason why we need to do this. Whatever it is, pick your own way enumerated below.
- Be sure your router is plug-in and attached to the electricity. Glance at the back and underlying part of the router and look for the “Reset” button. The button is noted for the intent and recessed that has a little hole to prevent incidents of resetting it.
- You will use a straightened out paper clip or any sharpened materials and hold the Reset button till the power light will start blinking. The method will be performed in 10 seconds and then for older modems could take 30 seconds.
- And then, put out the button and hold off until the light will quit from blinking. If the light fails to halt from blinking after 60 seconds of discharging it, you’ll want to move instantly to the next step.
- Remove the wireless router with the electrical power cable for around 30 seconds after which plug it back. A brand-new type of Linksys routers wouldn’t really need this method but it won’t induce a damage to try. Your router now has now been reset to the default factory setting and ready for a new configuration.
Using the Computer
- Just type your web browser 192.168.1.1 IP. Enter the username and password you will have set up. In the event you never ever set, just keep the username blank and key in “admin” on password field.
- Go to “Administration” tab and then just select “Factory Defaults” over the sub-tab.
- Last, click the “Restore Factory Defaults” link and your router will reset.
