How can I reset to factory default settings?

On firmware versions 6.6.4 and older. Here's the sequence to follow:

Reboot

Wait 1 minute

Reboot

Wait 1 minute

Reboot

After this reboot, it should now have the factory settings.

 

 

With firmware version 6.6.5 and newer there are now two different ways to reset any WiFiRanger router to factory default settings.

If you can access your WiFiRanger's Control Panel, there is now a Reset to Factory Default button at the bottom of the Setup page.  When you push the button and confirm your action the router will reset itself and then direct you to reboot it.  

If you cannot access the WiFiRanger's control panel you can force a reset to factory default by a specific sequence of reboots.  The sequence has been changed from previous firmware versions to minimize accidental resets. Here's the sequence to follow:

Reboot

Wait 1 minute ( waiting 1:30 is smart to be safe )

Reboot

Wait 2 minutes ( waiting 2:30 once again is best to be safe )

Reboot

Wait 2 minutes ( waiting 2:30 for the last time to be safe )

Reboot

After this last reboot, it should now have the factory settings.
