Getting to know the Belkin router's Reset button

There is a Reset button on your Belkin router which can be pressed to restore the router back to its default settings.  You can use a paper clip or any pointed object to assist in you in properly pressing this button.

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.    

NOTE:  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 wouldn't 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 that resetting the router is different from just restarting it.  If you only want to restart your router, click here.
