This guide covers how to reset the Aztech DSL1015EN-L router back to factory settings. It's important that you know this is not the same thing as a reboot. A reboot is a cycle in the power to the device. To manually reboot your router you need to unplug the power source for about 30 seconds then plug it back in.

Warning: This will cause additional problems for you if you are not expecting things to be different when you enter the router interface. Please consider the following:
