Hi, one of my friend is using a Linksys router at his home since last couple of weeks. He has made some steps to make his router more secure. Now due to some reason he just want to reset the router but we don't have any idea about doing the same. So, i wanted to know the steps for resetting the factory settings in Linksys router. Please help me.

Re: How to reset factory settings in linksys router

Resetting factory settings is much useful when you forget your routerís password or made a mistake and you canít connect to the router.To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, just go through this simple steps:-
  • Just hold down the Reset button on the back of the linksys router for 30 seconds.

  • Unplug your power cord for 30 seconds and than plug it back

  • Wait for the Power and WLAN to light up on the router and a sign on your computer showing that a connection has been made to the router.

  • After Resetting, configure the router by typing http://192.168.1.1/.

  • This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.

  • The default username and password will be admin.

  • Now open your web browser and check to see if you can get on the Internet now.

Re: How to reset factory settings in linksys router

Resetting default factory settings on Linksys router is much simple. You just need to hold on the Reset button for more than 30 seconds and router resets.Insure before you reset your router that you have all needed configurations backed up or written down.
