Resetting or restoring the range extender’s factory default settings

Resetting is a process that restores your range extender's settings to factory defaults.  This is useful when you need to reconfigure or reinstall this device.

There are two ways to reset your range extender.  Choose from the following options to learn how:
The location of your range extender's reset button will vary depending on its model.  The reset begins once you press and hold the reset button for at least 10 seconds while the range extender is powered ON.  The Status Light on the the range extender will momentarily flash and will then begin to blink.  When the light becomes solid again, the reset is complete.  
NOTE:  In this example, the reset button is located at the bottom.

If using the physical button does not work, you can access the range extender's web-based setup page and do the reset from there.
Before you begin:
  • Make sure that the wireless computer or device you're using to access the web-based setup page is connected to the same network as the range extender.
  • You need to identify the IP address that your router has assigned to your range extender.  Locate this by accessing your router's DHCP Client table.  Once you have the range extender's assigned IP address, use it to access your range extender's web-based setup page. 
  • Alternatively, you can enter "" in the web browser’s Address bar if your range extender has NOT detected a DHCP server in your network.
Step 1:
In the web-based setup page of the range extender, go to Utilities and select Restore Factory Defaults.

Click on the Restore Factory Defaults button.
