If you've forgotten your NETGEAR router username or password, you can reset it to factory default.


Hold the reset button

On the back of your NETGEAR router is a reset button. Using a pen, push and hold this button until all of the lights on the front of the unit start flashing.


Give your router a few minutes to reboot before use.
