Warning: A reset erases every single setting and returns it to factory defaults. This is a big step and should not be taken lightly. Make a list of the settings you have changed in the past. Things to consider are:

This is the reset page from your Eltex router.

While the router is on take a pin or straightened paperclip and press down on 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 device instead of resetting it like you wanted.

Don't forget this reset is going to erase every single setting you have ever changed on the Eltex NTP-RG-1402G-W router. We strongly recommend trying other ways of fixing your problem before resorting to a reset.

Login to the Eltex NTP-RG-1402G-W

Now that you've reset the Eltex NTP-RG-1402G-W router you'll need to log into it. This is accomplished by using the factory default username and password. Not sure where to find these? We have them listed for you in our Login Guide.

Tip: If the defaults aren't working for you 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. This can be anything 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 check out our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

Tip: Keep from losing your new password by writing it on a slip of paper and taping it to the underside of your router.
