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..

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.

Info on how to reset the router


You can factory reset the router using the small button on the back, hold it in for 30 seconds with the power on to the router. This will clear all settings from the router including the password, so you will need to set up the router again after the reset.

I have lost my network security key. My router is a Netgear


If you have lost it for good your best bet is to reset your router to its defaults and then set a new one. You should find a button, usually red, on the back of the router. Press that for about 30 seconds or until you see the lights cycle. The router will now be returned to its defaults and you will be able to log into it using the default credentials and set it back up. Good luck.

I need to reset my password


In order to get your router back to the original settings, you must push in the reset button (usually on the back of the router) for somewhere between 10 and 30 seconds depending on the router. You may need a pin or something small to push in the button, because it can be recessed. Once you have reset the router, the username and password will be changed to the defaults, admin and password, respectively. One thing you must remember is that resetting the router will change all of the router settings back to the factory settings. This means you will lose all of the changes you made since you got the router. Make sure to write down any things you've changed, so you can change them back after the reset. Also, I recommend updating to the latest firmware after the reset.
If you need more help post back! Thumbs and testimonial are welcome!

Need to find out password or how to reset a new password


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.

or

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

dont forget to vote hope this helps

How do you reset a password?


Easy, reset the router itself, should have a tiny pin hole in the back that has a button that you must compress, just google reseting your model.
If you have any problems let me know.
