2.
Carefully inser t the point of a pen or an unwound paperclip into the opening.
3.
Press this switch.
If you press the factor y default button for less than 1/2 a second, the unit will continue to run as nor-
mal.
If you press the factor y default button for 3 seconds, when you release it, the Gateway will per form a 
factor y reset, clear all settings and configurations, except those saved as Saved Configuration(s). (See 
.) The Router will then reboot.
If you press the factor y default button for 6 seconds, when you release it, the Gateway will per form a 
factor y reset, clear all settings and configurations, including Saved Configurations, and reboot.
Power Outages
If you suspect that power was restored after a power outage and the Router is connected to a remote site, you 
may need to switch the Router off and then back on again. After temporar y power outages, a connection that 
still seems to be up may actually be disconnected. Rebooting the gateway should reestablish the connection.
