General procedure for restarting consumer (home) routers

  • Give a web-browser the URL of the router's admin pages.
    • log in with the admin id and password
    • select restart or reboot from there
  • Press the reset button on the casing (if it has one)
  • Unplug power and then plug it back in again.
  • Read the user-guide

If you want to change the password or reset to factory defaults you need to:-

Press and hold the reset button (on the back of the router, near the power socket) for ten seconds.
