Restore the Factory Settings and Password
This section explains how to restore the factory settings, changing the router’s administration
password back to password. You can erase the current configuration and restore factory
defaults in two ways:
•Use the Erase function of the router. For more information, see Erase on page 103.
•Use the Restore Factory Settings button on the bottom of the router. For more
information, see Factory Default Settings on page 154. If you restore the factory settings
and the router fails to restart, or the green Power/Check LED continues to blink, the unit
might be defective. If the error persists, you might have a hardware problem and should
contact technical support at http://www.netgear.com/support.
