Additional FAQ


Does Unplugging a Router Reset It?


Yes, it does. Disconnecting the power from a router for 30 seconds or so before re-connecting will soft reset it (restart).


Giving Your Router a Fresh Start


Disconnecting your router or holding down the “Reset” button for a few seconds can work wonders.


This will clear its cache, reset the IP assignments, and serves as a great troubleshooting tool. Once your router has restarted, your Wi-Fi connections should be stronger, and the router should continue to operate as expected. As a practice, it’s probably a good idea to occasionally restart your router, as you would your computer.
