The user should read the manual correctly and follow according to the instructions. The connections of the router can be checked with the help of the light indicators on the device. The green light is the indication of the correct working. The router prevents the user from setting the password if the connections are not proper.

Restore the router to factory defaults

This option helps the user to set the router to its factory defaults. The option can also be used by the users if the user forgets the password.
