How to reboot WRT54G

I usually do a power adapter switch to get it rebooted. That needs to approach the physical router in different room. Did some search, and found there probably have 3 ways to reboot/refresh router.

Method 1 - Use hidden reboot page
After login to administration page ( using admin/thepassword, then type hidden page

Method 2 - Backup & Restore
Administration page: Administration -> Config Management -> Backup, then Restore using the backup file (config.bin)

Method 3 - DHCP release/renew
I am not sure if it solves some connectivity issue, will try next time. Administration page: Status -> Router -> DHCP Release/Renew.


  1. 1. Press the reset button for 30 seconds.
    (The reset button is a small rounded button right next to Internet jack on the back of the router) After reset, the router settings will now return to the factory default settings. Any changes you had made would be deleted.

    2. Open up your Web browser and enter “″ in the address bar.

    3. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter “admin” as the password.

    4. You now can start reconfiguring your router.STC Technologies
