Here on this page I will be describing how to properly reset the Linksys WRT350Nv2 router back to the original factory defaults.

There is a lot of confusion between a reset and a reboot. Router manufacturers will often use the term reset to mean both a reset and a reboot. In this guide when I use the term reboot I am referring to a cycle in the power to the unit. Absolutely no settings change when a reboot is done. When I use the term reset I am referring to a full factory restore of all the settings that have ever been changed. All your personal data or settings are lost.

Warning: A reset is a big step. Do not take it lightly. I strongly recommend making a list of all the possible settings you may of changed in the past. In this list you should include:

This is the reset page from your Linksys router.

First of all, make sure the router is plugged in and turned on. Then take a sharp object such as a straightened paperclip and press down on the reset button for about 10 seconds. This begins the reset process. If you don't hold the reset button down for long enough you end up only rebooting the router instead of resetting it like you wanted.

DO NOT: unplug or turn off the router during the reset process. Doing so can cause permanent damage to the device.

Remember this reset erases every single setting you have ever changed in the past. I strongly recommend trying other methods of troubleshooting before you decide to reset the Linksys WRT350Nv2 router.

Login to the Linksys WRT350N

Now that the Linksys WRT350Nv2 router has been reset you will need to login to it by using the default username, password, and IP address. Here at setuprouter.com we have compiled this information and included it in our Login Guide for the Linksys WRT350Nv2 router.

Tip: Defaults not working? The router might have not been properly reset. Try resetting it again but this time hold down the reset button for a little longer.

Change Your Password

After you successfully login to your router you should consider changing the password from the default. Default passwords are not very secure and they should be changed as soon as possible. If you need help making a password, visit our Choosing a Strong Password guide for some useful advice.

Tip: Avoid losing your password by writing it down on a piece of paper and attaching it to the underside of the router.

Finally it is time to secure your wireless network. To accomplish this you will need to configure the router's WiFi settings. Not sure how to do this? Check out our WiFi Instructions for the Linksys WRT350Nv2 router.
