The reset button resets the router to factory settings. Only do this if you can't get into your network or you messed it up.

SOURCE: reset my router netgear

just press the reset button at the back of your router (there's a tiny hole near the ethernet ports, you need to use a pin or a paper clip) for like 30 secs to a minute and power cycle it. (note
you can also do a software reset, just follow the steps below:

  1. Type 192.168.1.1 in a Web browser
  2. Click on Backup Settings
  3. In the Revert to Factory Default Settings click Erase
Note: Do not try to go online, turn off the Router, shutdown the computer or do anything else to the Router until the Router finishes restarting! When the Test light (looks like a check mark) stops blinking, wait a few more seconds before doing anything with the Router.

do remember that all your settings will be deleted once you reset the router.

hope this'll help you

ciao

I have a netgear readyNAS NV+ that i want to reset the password.


Whether you bought a used Netgear router or just forgot your own password, you can reset it and start over.

This is not an unusual problem, so Netgear has made resetting and restarting their routers a simple task

Connect all of your devices.
If your Netgear router is not already connected, it should be plugged in, with one Ethernet cable connecting it to your computer and a second Ethernet cable connecting it to your computer's modem.

Locate the reset button on the rear of your Netgear router.
The reset button is a small inset button and requires a pointed object to reach it.

Use a fine-tipped pen to hold the button down for at least 10 seconds.
The test light should flash during this process.

Open your Internet browser and enter the Netgear router's IP address into the address bar to access the router's information. Generally, Netgear routers use the IP address 192.168.0.1, but the specific IP address will be listed in the router's manual.

Attempt to log in to the router with the default username and password.
The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password."

If the router's username and password were not cleared away, unplug the router and try holding down the reset button.

While you are holding down the reset button, plug the router back in.
Log in to the router using the default "admin" username and "password" as the password.

You can now reset your information, rename your router and enter your own username and password.

You may reset router to factory setting from the reset button on the back side of the router. Use a paper pin to press the button for few seconds, the lights on the front would blink and the router would restart with factory setting. Please not that ALL SETTING WOULD BE LOST...AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO MAKE CONFIGURATIONS AND SETTING ALL OVER AGAIN

Do a hard reset (20sec hold reset button, unplug for 20 sec still pressing the reset button and another 20 sec to turn on the power while holding the reset button). That should reset to defaults.

On most model Netgear wireless routers there is a reset button on the back of the router which reset the router back to the default factory settings. The location of this button is printed on the label.

Power off the router, press and hold the reset button (you need a sharp pen), power on the router, wait several seconds and release the reset button. You can now configure the wireless router again using the default admin login.

Open Port 81 on Netgear Switch


Actually you need to open the port on the cable modem / router. Switches just pass the packets along.

You can reset your Netgear router/wireless wpn824 router to the factory settings from within the router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings and returns the router to the original factory settings.

For this reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be solved with other methods.

Step 1: Check that your Netgear router/wireless wpn824 router is properly connected with your system or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.

Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '192.168.0.1' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear wpn824 router manual.

Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.

Step 4: Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'. This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting. Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.

Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the wpn824 router has been reset.
