We will be going over how to reset the Alcatel-Lucent I-240W-Q router in this guide. There is a difference between resetting the guide and rebooting the guide. Rebooting the guide is referring to cycling the power by turning the router off and back on again. Resetting erases all configurations you have made to your router.

Warning: When you reset your Alcatel-Lucent I-240W-Q router you need to be aware of changes that happen. Take the following into consideration:

  1. The router's main username and password are reset to factory defaults.
  2. The Wireless SSID/network name and password are reset.
  3. If you use a DSL connection you need to enter your ISP username and password in order to continue using Internet. Call your ISP for further details.
  4. All of your personal configurations are erased and need to be re-entered. This can include port forwards or IP addresses.
