1. Q:
    2. How do I reset my DSL-520B modem to the factory default settings?
    1. A:
    2. Step 1: With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back/bottom of the unit labeled Reset. 



      Step 2: Hold the paper clip down for 5 seconds and release. 


      Step 3: The lights on the front of the modem should start to flash (The power LED may go off or turn orange) and then the device will reboot. Please allow for up to 1 minute for the reset process to complete. 


      Note: Do not hold the reset button for longer than 5 seconds, doing so could cause the modem to go into a recovery mode (The Power light will flash or stay orange). If this happens, unplug the power from the modem for 30 seconds. Also, resetting the modem does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults.
