I am having trouble downloading most files.

How can I reset my Asus rt-n66u Black Knight Wireless Router to factory settings?

  • So this happens with any download? Did you try other clients, like wget maybe? – Der Hochstapler Aug 29 '13 at 19:21
  • More info about your connection. Single computer X Network; Direct connection X router; Cable X Wifi; Chrome X other programs; Proxy X non-proxy; only from yours computer X other too... etc. :) – week Aug 29 '13 at 19:21
  • You may try flashing new firmware for your device from asus.com/support. – week Aug 29 '13 at 19:40

There is a reset button between the Two USB sockets, and Gigabit Ethernet WAN port.

Press and hold the reset button for 5 seconds to restore factory defaults.

    I had to ensure the router booted a little bit .. if I tried to press the reset button either while turning on the router (as is quite common on other routers) or immediately after start, I couldn't get it to factory reset. I had to wait 20-30 seconds and then press reset button for 5 seconds until lamps start blinking – Peter Theill Apr 27 '16 at 21:31
