In this guide we will show you how to reset the Ativa AWGR54 router. There is confusion between resetting a router and rebooting a router. When a reboot is done it is simply cycling the power by turning the power off and back on again. Resetting a router does a lot more. In a true reset the router is returned completely to factory defaults.

Warning: Resetting this router can cause problems for you if you don't know what to expect. We recommend creating a list of settings you know you have changed. Please consider the following before you continue.
