Have you been trying to login to the HotBrick LB-2VPN router unsuccessfully? It might be time to consider a reset. A reset is a complete factory restore of all settings. This is nothing like a reboot which simply cycles the power to the unit. Please note that in this guide a reboot is not a reset.

Warning: This reset erases every setting you have ever changed. We suggest making a list of all the settings you have ever changed on the device. Some of these settings are:

  • The router's main interface username and password.
  • Any port forwarding you may of done in the past.
  • If you have made any other changes such as DNS or IP address changes make sure to

While the device is on, use a straightened paperclip and press down for more than 3 seconds to reset the HotBrick LB-2VPN. If you don't hold the reset button down for a full 3 seconds you will end up rebooting the unit instead of resetting like you wanted.

Remember this reset is going to erase every single setting you have ever changed in the lifetime of this device. We strongly recommend trying other methods of troubleshooting before you continue.

Login to the HotBrick LB-2 VPN

After you've reset the HotBrick LB-2VPN router you should log into it. Do this by using the factory default username and password. Don't know where you can find these? We have them listed for your use 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

Now that you've successfully reset and logged into your router we recommend setting a new password for it. This can be anything you like, however bear in mind that a strong password contains no personal information and is 14-20 characters in length. For more help be sure to take a look through our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

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