- Click “Cancel” in the Authentication Required dialogue box when prompted.
- Your router’s serial number, which can be found on the back of your router, must now be entered on the Router Password Recovery page.
- Answering two of your previously set security questions will be on the following screen when you click Continue. (If you haven’t already, see Q5; if not.)
- To restore your password, click Continue.
- I cannot access the router admin settings page, according to Q2.

- Log in to your router’s setup page after factory reset, then go to ADVANCED > Router Information. The default gateway IP is located next to the IP address.
How can I update the firmware on my wireless router?
It is usually advised to keep your router software updated because new firmware versions often include the most recent security upgrades and bug fixes.
- You will receive a notification in the settings section whenever a router firmware update is available. To update –
- Access Router Update by going to ADVANCED > Administration.
- If an update is identified on the firmware update assistant page, select YES.

Reminder: The entire process takes around 2 minutes; don’t interrupt it by turning off the power or restarting the router. Once the update has been completed, your router will reboot.
