Look for a small hole in the router housing. Stick a paper clip or small wire in the hole to reset the router. You can use a sharp pencil or a ballpoint pen too.

Hi, you can try these steps:
1) With the unit on, place an straightend paperclip into the hole on the back on the unit labeled Reset.
2) Hold the paperclip/reset down for 10 seconds and now release it.
3) The unit will reboot on its own.
As soon as the lights stop blinking, the unit is ready.
If you changed your password, it will be gone so refer to your user's guide for your router. Most router-passwords are blank or "admin".
