Hi

  • Decide what kind of reboot you are going to do. A soft reboot is performed the way you are “supposed” to do it. For a soft Windows reboot, go to the Start menu and select “Shut Down” or “Restart.” The computer will then shut itself down. Clicking “Restart” makes it boot up without further intervention from you.
  • Step 2 Perform a hard reboot by pushing the computer’s power button and holding it until the computer shuts down. Wait 45 seconds and restart the computer by pushing the power button again. You may have to start up in safe mode, but that also allows you the chance to restart properly or work on programs in a safer way. This method may cause you to lose data or mess up the operation of some of your programs. But it may be the only option if your computer's hard drive is frozen.
  • Step 3 Power down all of the computer's components. Shut off all of the peripherals you have attached to your computer, and disconnect the cables. Then, plug all of the peripherals back in, and restart your computer. This can often solve problems with your hard drive.
  • Step 4 Purchase and install a program such as Drive Reboot Restore PC 6.0 that streamlines the hard drive reboot process. These applications help prevent the problems that can develop after repeated computer use. They also ensure that your hard drive maintains the configuration you want each time you turn it on.
  • Step 5 Investigate what the problem may be with your hard drive. Because of its delicate nature, your hard drive can very easily be thrown off.

    Tplink 5210g not reset


    A hard reset will remove all your settings, and your device will be restored to factory default settings.
    Do not perform a hard reset unless you have backed up your settings or you can do the configuration again.
    Directly press and hold the reset button on the rear panel with a pin for approximately 6 to 10 seconds when the device is running, then the device will be reset and reboot automatically.

    Note:
    1. Make sure the device is powered on before it reboots completely.

    2. After the hard reset, the IP address of the device should be change to the default 192.168.1.1/192.168.0.1, and the default login username and password are both admin.

    3. Ensure that the IP address of your computer is in the same IP range with the device. That means your computer should have an IP address like 192.168.1.X/192.168.0.X (X is in range of 2~253), and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, the default gateway should be 192.168.1.1/192.168.0.1, which is the IP address of the device

    Forgot my router password


    To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
    To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
    Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
    Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
    http://192.168.1.1
    The default login = admin
    The default PW = admin
    You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
    Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
    Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
    To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

    I want to set it back to default factory settings


    There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process.
    If there is no disk or got lost,then follow this steps:
    1.Save any files or folders on your computer with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
    2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
    3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
    4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your computer back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
    5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot when you are prompted.
    6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

    DEFAULT SETTINGS


    You should have something in my computer like a recovery icon that will allow you to run by default settings.
    If not in my computer maybe it's in program files.
    Are you trying to format.
    Let me know if you find recovery if not I may have another solution if your trying to format.
