There is a reset "hole" on the unit.
Use a stylus (straightened-out paper clip) and press the reset button in the hole for 30 seconds, or until the lights do their reset dance.

How do i unblock facebook from a school computer

Typically, this type of block is done on a network controller and you would need access to that device, which is unlikely. The administration at your school most likely has the access controlled and override would not be possible.

Does a 10 second reset on a NetGear router reset everything. Even the password on the network and so on.

It can... Are you talking about holding down the reset button for 10 seconds? That may or may not do the actual reset, on some models you have to power it on while holding the reset in, but in any case... 10 seconds is more than long enough to do the job, as long as the sequence was performed properly.

The login, password, and basic settings should all revert to factory defaults. Remember to log in promptly and setup a new ID and Password so no one else can get in with the defaults and change it on YOU. 8^)

Good Luck..

Does a 10 second reset on a Netgear router reset everything. Even the password on the network and so on?

it should only set the password on the router

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.


if there a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings

hope this helps

Wireless not working - the wireless light on the front of the unit is not on...the wireless settings don;t seem to work...netgear's phone support only wanted to charge me!


Please reset the router and then reconfigure it. To reset the router follow the below steps:

At the back of the router you will find a small tiny hole (which says restore to factory default settings). Press the button with the help of a paper clip and hold it down for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, please release the button and power off the router for 5 seconds then power the router back.
Please reconfigure the router by running router configuration wizard.

How do i unblock netgear firewall?

Sir to access the router, go to your browser then type in then type in Under the Username field enter “admin” and Under the password field enter “password”. After this you are now in it and you can now configure the firewall to be in unblock mode. Before doing this sir, i suggest that you unplug any cable in the WAN slot and just leave the PC you are using to it.
