This includes your network name, wireless password, or any other settings you may have modified. After the hard reset, the router will need to be set up from scratch. You also need to update the wireless password on all devices connected to your Wi Fi network.
The factory reset steps can be based on the official Windstream guides.
- You will find the reset button on the router’s back. It is normally hidden and can’t be easily reached in order to prevent accidental resetting. A pen or a paperclip are required to access the button.
- Put the pen or paperclip into the hole. Hold the button down until the router lights flash. For at least three seconds, keep the button pressed.
- Once the router lights are stable, you can login to Windstream router using the default login details.
