If you have tried to login to the KPN Experia-Box router and been unsuccessful it might be time to consider a reset. In this guide when I use the term reset I do not mean a reboot. When you reboot a router you simply cycle the power to the unit. When you reset a router you erase all the settings you have previously changed. It then reverts all those settings back to factory defaults.

Warning: This is a big step and should not be taken lightly. There may be quite a few settings that are erased. We suggest making a list of all the settings you may of changed in the past. This includes:

  • The router's main username and password.
  • The network SSID and password.
  • If this is a DSL router you will need to re-enter the ISP or Internet Service Provider username and password. Call your ISP for these details.
  • Have you made any other changes to this device? How about port forwards or IP address changes? 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.

Below you can see an overhead view of the KPN Experia-Box router. I have circled the location of the reset button for you in red.

This is the reset page from your KPN Experia-Box router.

While the router remains on take a straightened paperclip or other similar object and press down on the reset button until the front "Power" LED light turns red. This begins the reset process. The manual clearly warns that this could take up to 30 minutes to complete.

If you don't hold the reset button down until the power LED turns red you may only end up rebooting the device instead of resetting it like you wanted.

Warning: Do not under any circumstances unplug or turn off the router during the reset process! This could cause permanent damage to the router.

Remember a reset like this one erases every single setting you have ever changed in the history of this device. Please consider other options first.

Login to the KPN Experia-Box

After the reset process is complete you need to login to the KPN Experia-Box router using the default username and password from the factory. We have compiled this information for you and included it in our KPN Experia-Box Login Guide.

Tip: If the default values didn't work it might be because you didn't hold the reset button down long enough.

Change Your Password

After a successful login you should change the password you just used to access the router's settings. If you need a little extra help check out our Choosing a Strong Password guide.

Tip: One way to avoid the loss of this password is to write it down on a slip of paper and attach it to the bottom of the router.

Setup WiFi on the KPN Experia-Box

Finally I want to give you the link for the KPN Experia-Box WiFi Instructions. It is important that you setup the wireless settings as soon as possible. These settings help to protect your local network.
