Note: Factory resetting the router will erase all the settings you have made to the D-Link router. 


To perform a factory reset, please follow these steps:


Step 1: With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back/bottom of the unit labeled Reset.



Step 2: Hold the paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.


Step 3: The COVR LED on the front will turn solid RED and then the device will reboot. Please allow for up to one minute for the reset process to complete.


Note: Do not hold the reset button for longer than 10 seconds, doing so could cause the router to go into a recovery mode (the Power light will flash or stay orange). If this happens, unplug the power from the router for 30 seconds. Also, resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults.
