On this page I explain how to reset the Dlink DI-624M router back to factory defaults. Before we begin it's important that you know the difference between a reset and a reboot. On this page when I use the word reboot I am referring to a cycle in the power the device. This is done to solve minor behavioral problems you may experience with your device. If you want to do this manually you would unplug the power source, wait about 30 seconds, then plug the power back in. In this guide when I use the word reset I am referring to a complete factory restore of all settings. All your personal configurations are erased and replaced with the original factory presets.

Warning: Resetting this device can cause more problems for you if you don't know which settings have been changed and which ones have not. It's best to assume all settings are changed. Our recommendation is to make a list of any personal configurations you have made in the past. Consider the following:

Reset the Dlink DI-624M

  1. Keep your router powered on.
  2. Turn your router around so you are looking at the back panel.
  3. Locate the tiny recessed button labeled Reset.
  4. Using a paperclip or other similar object press and hold the reset button down for a full 10 seconds.

Warning: If you don't hold the reset button down for a full 10 seconds you end up rebooting the router instead of resetting it like you wanted.

After the reset is complete all your personal configurations are erased. Consider other troubleshooting methods if you want to try and avoid this loss.

Login to the Dlink DI-624M

Now that you've reset the Dlink DI-624M router you'll need to log into it. Do this by using the factory default username and password provided to you in our Login Guide.

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

Change Your Password

Next you should set a new password for your router. Bear in mind that this password will only protect your router settings, not your wireless network. However it's always a good idea to set a strong password. For help in doing so visit our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

Tip: Avoid losing your new password by writing it on a note and taping it to the underside of your router.
