Unable to reset a Belkin Wireless N F5D8236-4v1 back to default

After setting up a password on my Belkin Wireless N F5D8236-4v1 router I am unable to login to the web config page. I have tried resetting it back to default except is does not go back to default. It keeps the exact same config. I unplugged it held the reset in and plugged it back in while holding the reset and this still did not reset it back to default. I also shutdown my computer then my router then my modem then plugged back in like the manual says and guess what? still not default. Please help! I really do not want to return it for the speed of the 802.11n. I also tried downloading the firmware the the Belkin page and reloading it but ofc that did not work either.Thanks in advanced.

To reset this router, you perform holding downt the reset butto while the router is plugged in for ten seconds, it should then automatically restart to factory default settings.

That is indeed strange. Holding in the reset button should definitely clear the wireless router memory. Are you sure that you're going to the right administration page to configure the router? It should be something like 192.168.1.1.

Also... by any chance are there other wireless networks nearby? I'm wondering if your computer accidentally connected to that while the wireless router was off... and now you're going to the wrong router.

If none of that works, try leaving the router unplugged for about five minutes. The volatile memory shouldn't last much longer than that.

1. Locate the reset hole on the router. The button will be on the back or side of the router.
Leave the router powered on.

  1. Use a paperclip (or similar) to press and hold in the reset button for 10 seconds.
  1. Remove the paperclip.

4. Wait approximately one minute for the router to restart.

The settings for the router have now been reset back to their default.

Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed.

Setup steps:

1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.

2. Open a web browser on the computer.

3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1

If it is the password for the router's wireless connection that you forgot, the only option is to reset the router to factory default condition, then re-enter all you configuration information (including the wireless password), and then change the password in the other computers to match.

There is a "Reset" switch that requires a paper clip or similar item to depress it (with the router on) and hold for about 10 seconds, then release. This puts the router back into its factory default state.

Hope that's helpful.

Cannot access router's web based advanced user interface


The password on most Belkins is left blank, and the default IP address is 192.168.2.1

To reset the router to default,
•Unplug all LAN cables from the router.

•Unplug the router power cord connector from the back of the device.

•Using a paper clip or something similar that will fit into the reset hole, press continue to hold the reset button, then carefully reinsert the power cord, making sure not to release the reset button in the process.

•Continue to hold the reset button in for at least 15 seconds after inserting the power cord, then release it. After about 10-25 seconds the router will boot and it will be set back to the original factory default settings.

Reset belkin router F5D7230-4 to factory defaults


There is a small button in the back of your F5D7230_4 Belkin router. you need a pencil to push it for some seconds.

All your router setting will return to default. (Username:Admin, Password:Admin).

If security has been enabled on the router, the security will be removed when the F5D7230_4 router is reset to the factory settings. This means, anyone can connect to your Wi-Fi signal until you set up router security again.
