This page shows you how to reset the CD-R-King IP04177 router back to it's original factory defaults. This is not the same thing as a reboot. When you reboot the router you are cycling the power to the device by unplugging the power, waiting a bit, then turning the power back on. When you reset a router you are erasing all the settings and returning them to factory defaults.

Warning: This reset is a serious step and it can cause problems if you don't know what settings are going to be changed. It's a good idea to make a list of all the settings you know about that will be changed.

  • The router's main username and password
  • The Internet password and name
  • The Internet Service Provider username and password if you own a DSL router. You need to call your ISP for more information on that.
  • Have you made any other changes to your router? Everything you changed will need to be reconfigured.

Use a VPN Instead

Have you considered using a VPN instead of forwarding a port? For most users, a VPN is a much simpler and more secure choice than forwarding a port.

We use and recommend NordVPN because not only is it the fastest VPN, it includes a new feature called Meshnet that makes forwarding a port no longer necessary for most applications. With NordVPN Meshnet, you can connect to your devices from anywhere in the world, completely secure, over a highly encrypted VPN tunnel.

When shopping for a VPN, make sure that they meet the following criteria:

  • Your VPN provider should have a no-logs policy. This means that they do not keep any logs of any kind.
  • Make sure that your VPN provider has lots of exit nodes all around the world.
  • Check that your VPN will not affect your speed.
  • Verify that your VPN provider uses WireGuard as the underlying protocol.
  • Many people prefer a VPN provider that is not based in the United States.

This is the list of requirements that we used when we were shopping around for a VPN provider. There are lots of free, shady VPN providers out there that we looked at and dismissed.

Based in Panama, using diskless servers, and with over 6,100 servers in 61 countries, we can safely say that NordVPN satisfies all of these requirements.

NordVPN is the fastest VPN!

Once you've set up your NordVPN account on multiple computers and enabled Meshnet, you can seamlessly access all of your devices as if they were on the same network. You don't even have to log in to your router. It's very simple.

Every time you click on one of our affiliate links, such as NordVPN, we get a little kickback for introducing you to the service. Think of us as your VPN wingman.

The first step is to locate the reset button. Typically the reset button is found on the back or side panel of the device like the picture below:

This is the reset page from your CD-R King IP04177 router.

Using the end of a paperclip press down on the reset button for a minimum of 10 seconds. This initiates the reset process. If you don't hold the button down for the entire time you may only reboot the device instead of resetting it like you wanted.

Resetting your router will erase everything you have ever configured on the device. If you want to try and avoid a reset we highly recommend trying other troubleshooting methods first.

Login to the CD-R King IP04177

Change Your Password

It is now a good idea to change your password to something you create. Default passwords are easy to guess and need to be reconfigured. If you need help check out our Choosing a Strong Password guide.

Tip: It's important that you don't lose this password. If this router is located in your home you can write this password down on a piece of paper and attach it to the bottom of the router.
