    With the reset button

    1. Have your unit powered on
    2. Press and hold the reset button for at least 10 seconds until the power light starts blinking, then release.
    3. When the power light goes solid, unplug the power to the router for 10 seconds
    4. Plug the power back in and start the router
    5. When the power light goes solid again the router is ready to use.

    The 30-30-30 reset

    If the above instructions don't work you can always try the 30-30-30 reset as follows:
    1. When router is powered on, press the reset button and hold for 30 seconds. (Use a paper clip or something sharp)
    2. While holding the reset button pressed, unplug the power of the router and hold the reset button for 30 seconds
    3. While still holding the reset button down, turn on the power to the unit again and hold for another 30 seconds.
    This process usually works for resetting any router to it's factory setting
