Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router
2 wire router 1020. is there a hard reset button ? Reason is, my mates router blew. gave him my spare but has my details and I cant remember passwords..... please can you help
If you do a hard reset on that sort of router, any information on the router will be lost, and the router will return to factory defaults.
Do you mean that you want to do a hard reset on your FRIEND'S router, so that you can go back to using the OTHER router that you lent him?
look for a small, recessed button on the back, near where the power cord plugs in. you'll probably need a pen or sharp pencil in order to press it.
if you can find that recessed button, hold it down until the lights on your router blink
simultanously, then release it. I know that works on SOME models of 2Wire routers, I'm not certain whether or not this model has the option or not.

Some people don't realize that pressing a router's reset button for just a second or two may do nothing. Depending on the type of router and its current state (including the nature of any problems it may have), you may need to hold down the button longer. Networking enthusiasts have developed this so-called 30-30-30 hard reset procedure that should fully reset any home router to its default settings at any time. Follow these steps to perform a router hard reset:
