You’ve got a couple of options if you need to reset an ASUS router or modem. Although most devices rely on a factory reset button, a web-based addition option is offered by ASUS. You can reset the router from the comfort of your desk chair in the factory!
I’ll cover both strategies, because if the web portal doesn’t function as intended, the factory reset button can be an excellent fail-safe.
Note: The device’s factory reset would wipe out existing network settings. After the reset, you will need to reconfigure all of your settings, including items like your name and password for the WiFi network.
Quick Steps to Asus Router Reset
Step 1: While the router is still on, press and hold the Reset button
- Click and hold on the reset button for around 10-15 seconds using a pin or sharp-pointed marker.
- Upon good reset, the power indicator should start flashing
- The only power light will be on during the hard reset, and the other lights will be back on after 1-2mins. Ideally, at least 4 lights should be turned on:
Step 2: Link the system to the “ASUS” wireless name and set up your network.

Step 4: New Setting of Wireless
Go to the Wireless Setup tab, enter the network name (SSID) and network key (password) you want for 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz respectively. Uh. E.g. MyWireless 5G, MyWireless 5G, MyWireless
Note: For both 2.4GHz and 5GHz, please do not configure the exact same network name(SSID). However, for both, the network key may be the same
A message will appear once you are set -“You have changed SSID or security setting. Thus it will result in wireless clients disconnect. Please adjust the client’s setting for connecting again”.
Step 5: Try connecting your computer to the latest settings for your network
- To link to a new wireless name (SSID) and network key (password) set earlier, click on the wireless icon on your screen.
- You should be able to access the internet once you have been successfully linked to the new wireless name!
