- Keep that reset button pressed for at least 5 to 10 seconds so that the router gets a reset.
- The lights on the indicator panel will go off at once and then they will lit up again and start blinking indicating the router reset.
- The router is now reset to its original factory settings and you will need to configure it again with the details provided by your DSL provider. All the information is erased from the memory of the router after a factory reset is done.
Reset through the web interface of the router i.e. by accessing www.tplinkwifi.net
- Assuming that your router is still connected to your PC and you need to reset it.
- Open the web browser of your PC and enter the link www.tplinkwifi.net in the URL bar of the browser.
- Authenticate your login by providing the necessary information like the username and password you have set. If you using the router for the first time, then the default username and password is “admin” and “password”.
