On this page I will be showing you how to properly reset the Dlink DWR-113 router back to it's original factory defaults. This is not the same thing as a reboot. When you reboot something you cycle the power to the device. When you reset something you take all the settings and return them all to factory default settings.

Warning: Resetting the Dlink DWR-113 is a big step and shouldn't be taken lightly. Make sure you understand that all settings you have changed during the lifetime of this router are erased and returned to factory defaults. Make a list of any settings you can think of that you have changed in the past. Take the following list into consideration before continuing.

  • The router's main access username and password are erased and returned to factory defaults.
  • The Internet name/SSID and password are also erased and returned to factory defaults.
  • If this is a DSL router you need to re-enter the ISP (Internet Service Provider) username and password. If you don't enter in the required info you won't be able to access the Internet. Call your local ISP for the details.
  • Have you made any other changes? How about port forwards or IP address changes? Write any possible changes you have made down so you can reconfigure them after the reset is complete.

Reset the Dlink DWR-113

Begin this reset by finding the reset button. For this particular router model it is located on the front panel. This is unusual for a router, take a look at the image below for the exact location.

This is the reset page from your Dlink DWR-113 router.

While the router is turned on, take a straightened paperclip and press down on the reset button for about 10 seconds. This starts the reset process. 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.

Tip: Remember this reset erases every setting you have ever changed on this device. To avoid this we highly recommend exhausting your other troubleshooting methods first.

Login to the Dlink DWR-113

Now that you have finished the reset you should login using the default values from the factory. If you don't know these we have the default IP address, username and password for you in our Login Guide.

Tip: If the login defaults didn't work it could be that you didn't hold the reset button down for long enough.

Change Your Password

Once you login you should start by changing the router's default password used to access the router interface. To create a strong password check out our Choosing a Strong Password guide.

Tip: One way to avoid losing this new password is to write it down on a piece of paper and attaching it to the bottom of the device for future reference.
