On this page I show you how to reset the Cisco EPC3925 router back to factory default settings. This is NOT the same thing as a s reboot. A reboot is simply cycling the power to the device by turning the router off then back on again. A router reset takes all the settings on the device and returns every one of them back to the factory default values.

Warning: This reset can cause problems for you if you are unaware of what settings are changed. Please consider the following before you reset the Cisco EPC3925 router:

The router setup IP address, username, and password are reverted to factory defaults.

The Internet name and password are erased and returned to factory defaults.

The ISP username and password are erased. To continue to use the Internet you need to re-enter these values. This is only for those of you with a DSL router. Call your Internet Service Provider for more information.

All other settings such as port forwards or IP address assignments are erased. Make a list of these extra settings you have changed in order to reconfigure them later.
