This is the reset page from your Dlink router.

Taking a pin or unfolded paperclip press and hold the reset button for about 10 seconds. If you don't hold the reset button down for long enough you end up only rebooting the router instead of resetting it like you wanted.

Remember resetting this router erases every single setting you have ever changed on this device. To avoid this loss we recommend trying other methods of fixing the problem you are having.

Login to the Dlink DIR-635

Next you'll need to log into your Dlink DIR-635 router. This is done using the factory default username and password. We have these listed for you in our Login Guide.

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

Change Your Password

After you've logged into your router you'll need to set a new password for it. This can be anything you want it to be, however keep in mind that a strong password consists of 14-20 characters and includes no personal information. For more help be sure to visit our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

Tip: Afraid of losing your new password? Try writing it on a note and taping it to the underside of your router.
