Holding the reset button for 15-20 seconds will cause the WL-520GU to reboot.
Upon reboot, a pressed reset button causes the WL-520GU to go into firmware restoration mode. This does NOT reset the defaults (see the section below for more information on the firmware restoration mode).
Since there is little to no warning of the exact instant the WL-520GU will reboot when holding the reset button, chances are extremely good that the reset button will still be depressed and cause the WL-520GU to go into firmware restoration mode. Hard booting the WL-520GU will get the WL-520GU back, but settings will NOT be reset.
When the WL-520GU is booting
Holding the reset button during the boot sequence will reset the unit to its defaults.
Care must be taken to press the reset button right after the power light turns off immediately after powering on the WL-520GU and not before, to avoid going into firmware restoration mode.
Based on the above, it should be fairly self-evident that the following procedure is recommended for using the reset button on the WL-520GU.
Unplug the WL-520GU
Plug in the WL-520GU
The power light will blink
As soon as the power light turns off, press and hold the reset button
Hold the reset button until the power and wireless buttons glow green.

What does this line mean? "It's reading all the other computers but isn't working."
Do you mean that the other computers are hard-wired to ports 1, 2, 3 & four on the back of the router? Or are you going totally wireless? Is your cable, or satellite modem plugged into the port labeled WAN?
