    1. If the SYS light doesn't start to blink after 10 seconds:
      1. Keep holding the reset button pressed
      2. Turn off the modem / unplug it
      3. While still holding the reset button, start / plug in the router

  1. When router is powered on, press the reset button and hold for 30 seconds. (Use a paper clip or something sharp)
