While the router is 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 press and hold this button for the entire amount of time you may end up only rebooting the router instead of resetting it.

Please remember that this erases every single setting you have ever changed on this device. We recommend exhausting your other troubleshooting methods first.

Login to the Dlink WBR-1310

Following that you'll need to log into your Dlink WBR-1310v2 router. This is done by using the factory default username and password listed for your use in our Login Guide.

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

Change Your Password

Once you've logged into your router we recommend setting a new password for it. Remember that this password will only protect your router settings, not your wireless network. All the same, setting a strong password is always a good idea. For help in doing so check out our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

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