In this guide I will show you how to reset the Alcatel-Lucent Cellpipe-7130. Some people are confused about the difference between rebooting the router and resetting the router. Rebooting the router simply means you cycle the power to the device by turning it off and back on again. Resetting the router erases everything you have ever done to the router and it reverts back to factory defaults.

Warning: Since resetting the router erases everything you have done to the device. Some things that are changed are:

  1. The router's username and password.
  2. The Wireless username/SSID and password.
  3. If you have a DSL connection, the ISP username and password are erased. You will need to re-enter these. Call your ISP for details.
  4. Any configurations such as port forwards or IP address changes.
