Solved Other options beside reset ASUS router to factory settings

February 28, 2015 at 20:44:22
Specs: Windows 7
My sister did not give the ASUS 2400 Router a new name and now we can't see it because there is already a network set up. We want to do this as an additional option before we disable the old one.

That is not apparently the model number. Look on their site here:
http://www.asus.com/us/Networking/
and find the model, then look up the manual for it online and there should be instructions for resetting it to defaults. Be warned that all of your settings including passwords will revert to the defaults when you reset it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

There's usually a reset button on the back or bottom of the router. I'll take a stab at the model number as RT-AC87U? Here's the manual: RT-AC87U User Guide

"We want to do this as an additional option before we disable the old one"
I assume by a "new name" in your post you mean a pass phrase (or key). Whatever you cannot have one network with another name or pass phrase. You would have to set up am additional network, if you server allows this.

The best way therefore is to reset the router and start over. Mostly these days both the network name and pass phrase are on a sticker either at the back or underneath the router. It will be necessary to set each device to match whatever you use.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
