Resetting your Belkin router is a helpful workaround especially if the device does not work as expected. However, once you reset the router, all the settings and configurations that have been previously saved on your router will be removed. This means that you will need to set up the router again.
IMPORTANT: Before proceeding with the reset process, it is advised to secure a backup file of your router's settings first. By doing a backup, you would not need to manually set up all the configurations of your router. To learn how to create a backup file for your router, click here.
NOTE: The location of the Reset button may vary depending on the model of your router. In the example below, the Reset button is at the back panel of the router.
Look for the Reset button of your router. While the router is powered ON, press and hold the Reset button for 15 seconds.
Wait for at least one minute for the router to restart.
QUICK TIP: If your router does not respond as expected after using the reset button you may reset your router. If your router is using the web-based setup page, click here and if its using the Dashboard instead, click here.
