The Power LED starts blinking yellow and the configuration is reset to factory default
settings. When the reset is complete, the access point/router reboots. This process
takes about two minutes.
Warning: To avoid the risk of corrupting the firmware, do not interrupt the reset.
For example, if you are connected to the access point/router’s local browser interface,
do not close the browser, click a link, or load a new page. Do not turn off the access
point/router. Wait until the access point/router finishes restarting and the Power LED
turns solid green.
