Factory Reset
A factory reset will take the modem back to factory settings. That clears all settings like personalized wireless names, passwords, and port forwarding, etc. Depending on the state of the modem, sometimes a hard reset will restore services.
1. To reset, first find the reset pinhole in the back of the modem by the power cord. There is a small red circle surrounding the reset pinhole.
2. Take a small pointy object (a toothpick or a safety pin is best) and press it into the hole and hold for 15 seconds and then release.
3. Once the lights have stabilized check services again.
