While the Hiro H50188 router is on, take a small sharp object such as a straightened paperclip and press down on the reset button for a full 6 seconds to begin the reset process. If you don't hold this reset button down for the entire 6 seconds you might end up only rebooting the router instead of resetting it like you wanted.

Remember a reset like this one is erasing every single setting you have ever changed. This should be your last option after trying other methods of troubleshooting.

Following that we suggest setting a new password for your router. Keep in mind that this password will only protect your router settings, not your wireless network. All the same, setting a strong password is always a good decision. For more help be sure to check out our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.
