On this page I will show you how to reset the Dlink DSL-2750U-Etisalat router back to factory defaults. This isn't the same thing as a reboot. When you reboot a router you cycle the power to the router. When you reset a router you take all the settings and return them all to factory defaults.
Warning: This means every single setting you have ever changed on the device is erased and returned to factory defaults. We strongly recommend creating a list of all the settings you have ever changed on this device. Consider the following list:
Begin by finding the reset button on the Dlink DSL-2750U-Etisalat router. In the image below of a Dlink DSL-2750U-Etisalat you can see the reset button is on the bottom of the device.
Take a bent paperclip and press down on the reset button for about 10 seconds. This starts the reset process which can take a minute or so. If you don't hold this reset button down for the entire amount of time you may only reboot the device instead of the reset you were wanting.
Please remember that a reset is going to erase every setting you have ever changed in your router interface. This is why we recommend trying other methods of fixing the problem before you decide to reset.
Once you've reset your Dlink DSL-2750U-Etisalat router you'll need to log into it. This is accomplished by using the factory default username and password located in our Login Guide.
Tip: Defaults not logging you in? Before panicking, try holding the reset button down for longer.
Now that you've logged in you'll want to set a new password for it. This can be whatever you want it to be, however keep in mind that a strong password is 14-20 characters in length and includes no personal information. For more help be sure to visit 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 underside of your router.
Once you have logged in and changed the password for your router you should setup the WiFi settings for a secure local network. We recommend using our How to Setup WiFi on the Dlink DSL-2750U-Etisalat guide for easy to follow steps.
