Performing Router Reset Operations
Logging in to your Linksys Smart WiFi page and performing soft RESET
To factory reset or soft reset the router device, one is required to login to the smart WiFi setup page. And in order to do that, you need to access the Smart WiFi page of the router.
Open the web browser on your device and enter 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. This will take you to the Login page. If you know the credentials to access the setup page, try entering the same and if you don’t, you can follow the below set of combinations.
Username: admin; Password: admin
Username: admin; Password: password
Username: admin; Password: *leave this space blank and login directly*
The above combinations will help users to login to your Linksys Smart WiFi router setup page. Once you do, visit the Settings tab and go to Router Factory RESET tab.
Once you click on the same, every setting like the password for your Linksys router device will be reset in a single go. Wait for the router to restart automatically. It is recommended that after the soft factory reset operation is complete, you manually restart the device prior to the following setup process.
