Have you been trying to login to the Intracom NetFasteR-IAD router and been unsuccessful? It might be time to consider a reset. This reset is not the same thing as a reboot. When you reboot something you cycle the power to the unit. When you reset something you take all the settings and return them all to factory defaults.

Warning: Resetting the Intracom NetFasteR-IAD router is a big step and should not be taken lightly. We strongly recommend trying other troubleshooting methods first. We also recommend making a list of all the possible settings you have changed in the past such as:

  • The router's main username and password.
  • The WiFi username and password.
  • If you have a DSL router you may need to re-enter the Internet Service Provider (ISP) username and password. Call your ISP for these details.
  • Have you ever made any other changes to this device? If so you need to write these down as well.

Use a VPN Instead

Have you considered using a VPN instead of forwarding a port? For most users, a VPN is a much simpler and more secure choice than forwarding a port.

We use and recommend NordVPN because not only is it the fastest VPN, it includes a new feature called Meshnet that makes forwarding a port no longer necessary for most applications. With NordVPN Meshnet, you can connect to your devices from anywhere in the world, completely secure, over a highly encrypted VPN tunnel.

When shopping for a VPN, make sure that they meet the following criteria:

  • Your VPN provider should have a no-logs policy. This means that they do not keep any logs of any kind.
  • Make sure that your VPN provider has lots of exit nodes all around the world.
  • Check that your VPN will not affect your speed.
  • Verify that your VPN provider uses WireGuard as the underlying protocol.
  • Many people prefer a VPN provider that is not based in the United States.

This is the list of requirements that we used when we were shopping around for a VPN provider. There are lots of free, shady VPN providers out there that we looked at and dismissed.

Based in Panama, using diskless servers, and with over 6,100 servers in 61 countries, we can safely say that NordVPN satisfies all of these requirements.

NordVPN is the fastest VPN!

Once you've set up your NordVPN account on multiple computers and enabled Meshnet, you can seamlessly access all of your devices as if they were on the same network. You don't even have to log in to your router. It's very simple.

Every time you click on one of our affiliate links, such as NordVPN, we get a little kickback for introducing you to the service. Think of us as your VPN wingman.

This is the reset page from your Intracom NetFasteR IAD router.
  1. Turn off the Intracom NetFasteR-IAD router.
  2. Disconnect any Ethernet cables and/or phone lines from the router.
  3. Turn the Intracom NetFasteR-IAD router back on and wait for it to finish the boot process. This could take a minute.
  4. Press the reset button on the back panel for 10 seconds. This begins the reset process. If you don't hold the reset button down for long enough you might end up only rebooting the router instead of resetting it like you wanted.

Warning: Do not unplug or turn off the router during the reset process. Doing so could damage your router permanently.

Remember a reset like this one is going to erase every single setting you have ever changed in the history of the router. We highly recommend trying other methods of troubleshooting before you continue.

Following that you'll want to log into your router. This is accomplished by using the factory default username and password. These can be found listed for your use in our Login Guide.

Tip: Defaults not working for you? It might be because the reset button wasn't held down for long enough.

Change Your Password

After you've logged into your router we suggest setting a different password for it. This can be whatever you like, however keep in mind that a strong password is 14-20 characters in length and includes no personal information. For more help be sure to take a look through our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

Tip: Prevent yourself from losing your new password by writing it on a sticky note and attaching it to the bottom of your router.

Setup Wifi on the Intracom NetFasteR-IAD

Now that you've reset your router, it's a good idea to put the settings back how you like them. We recommend starting with the WiFi settings. Go ahead and use our Intracom NetFasteR-IAD WiFi Instructions for some help.
