On this page we will be showing you how to reset the Dlink DI-604v3 router back to it's original factory defaults. First I want to explain the difference between a reset and a reboot. When I use the word reboot I am referring to a cycle in the power to the device. When I use the word reset I am referring to a complete restore of all the settings. This means that any setting you have ever changed is erased and returned to factory defaults.

Warning: Resetting the router can cause additional problems for you if don't know which settings have changed and what ones have not. Please consider the following before continuing:

  • The main router username and password are reverted back to factory settings.
  • Write down any other settings you have changed as these will be erased. A full reconfiguration of this router will be necessary after the reset is complete.

The first step in this reset is to know where the reset button is located. For this router you can find it on the back panel. Go ahead and take a look at the image below. I have circled the reset button in yellow.

Take the tip of an unfolded paperclip and press down on the reset button for about 10 seconds. This begins the reset process. If you don't hold this button down for long enough you will only end up rebooting the router instead of resetting it like you wanted.

Remember this is erasing every single setting. If you want to avoid this you need to try other methods of solving your problem.

Login to the Dlink DI-604

After resetting the Dlink DI-604v3 router you'll need to log into it. Do this by using the factory default username and password. Not sure where to get these? We have them listed for you in our Login Guide.

Tip: If the defaults aren't working for you try holding the reset button for longer.

Change Your Password

Once you've logged in we suggest setting a new password. Remember that this password only protects your router settings, not your wireless network. Still, setting a strong password is always a good idea. For more help visit our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

Tip: Avoid losing your new password by writing it on a sticky note and putting it on the bottom of your router.
