In this guide I will cover how to reset your Arcor EasyBox-A300 router. It needs to be noted that a reset is different than a reboot. Rebooting a device is cycling the power by turning it off and back on again. Resetting is almost as easy but has more drastic consequences.

Warning: Resetting this Arcor EasyBox-A300 router will erase everything you have done to it in the past. Please consider the following before continuing.

  • Your router's main username and password are reset.
  • The WiFi username/SSID and password are reset as well.
  • If you use a DSL line into your router for Internet the ISP (Internet Service Provider) username and password need to be re-entered. Call your ISP for these details.
  • Any and all configurations you have made will be erased. This could include firewall settings, port forwards, or even IP address changes.
