While our routers and modems usually can go for a long period of time without needing to be rebooted, sometimes, if we have made changes or the ISP has, we need to reset our devices.
If you have an Asus device, you will need to know how to reset your Asus router or modem and why you would need to do it.
To begin with, it is important to understand what a reset is. There is a difference between a reboot and a reset.
Rebooting your device simply means shutting it down and powering it back up, refreshing the device. A reset changes the device back to the settings that it had when you first bought it (factory settings).
There are a few reasons you might opt for a reset, including forgetting your login information, if you have been having a lot of speed or connection issues, or if something is simply not working as well as it once did.
The first choice that you have is to locate a reset button on your Asus device. This is a factory reset button that is on most, if not all, devices.
Be warned that using this button will completely wipe out your device’s memory and settings, so you will need to get it set back up from scratch.
Another choice for resetting your Asus router or modem is to do it through a web browser. You will need to be connected to the Asus network through your computer or another device.
The final kind of reset we will look at is the 30-30-30 reset, which also involves the reset button.
You will know that you were successful with your reset when you are able to use the default login information for your Asus device. Then you can set it up again.
