Question about Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router
I think you meant "restart".
If it's simply locked up, just try unplugging the power supply for a few seconds and then plugging it back in. This will "restart" it, but will not reset anything.
If that doesn't solve the issue, then use a paper clip or similar item to press the "Reset" button on the back of the router for 15-20 seconds (while it is plugged in). This will put the router back to its factory condition. You'll have to re-enter your custom settings, if any, and the logon info/password will be reset to the factory default. You can then reset those as well.
