  2. With a sharp pen or paper clip, press down the Restore Factory Settings button and hold it for about 7 seconds
  3. When the power light starts to blink you can release the reset button and wait for the router to start up
  4. The power light will be solid (not blinking) once the router is started.

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. If that doesn't work be sure to check out the questions and answers incase someone else has had similar problems resetting their router.
