On this page I will show you how to reset the Dlink DHP-1565 router back to it' original factory defaults. Before I do that I need to go over two terms that are easily confused. The first is titled reboot. In this guide when I use the word reboot I mean a cycle in the power to the device. When I use the word reset I mean a complete factory restore of all settings.

Warning: Problems arise when you don't understand what settings have changed and what ones have not. We recommend making a list of all settings that you have changed in the past. Consider the following:

Reset the Dlink DHP-1565

First turn your router over so you are looking at the back panel. The reset button is located there. See image below:

This is the reset page from your Dlink router.

Second take an unfolded paperclip or pin and press down on the reset button for approximately 5 seconds. If you don't hold the button down for long enough you end up only rebooting the device instead of resetting it. The reset process will take at least 30 seconds to complete.

Please remember this reset is erasing all your previously configured settings. We strongly recommend trying other troubleshooting methods if you want to avoid re-configuring the device.

Login to the Dlink DHP-1565

Now that you've reset the Dlink DHP-1565 router you'll need to log into it. This is done using the default username and password provided for you in our Login Guide.

Tip: If the defaults aren't working for you it could be because the reset button wasn't held down for long enough.

Change Your Password

After logging in we suggest setting a new password. This can be anything you like, however a strong password consists of 14-20 characters and includes no personal information. For more help check out our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

Tip: Prevent yourself from losing your new password by writing it on a sticky note and attaching it to the bottom of your router.
