(Canned Speech) Reset Router
#1
Router Reset
  • Please read this: Malware Silently Alters Wireless Router Settings


  • Consult this link to find out what is the default username and password of your router and note down them: Route Passwords


  • Then rest your router to it's factory default settings:

    Quote:"If your machine has been infected by one of these Zlob/DNSchanger Trojans, and your router settings have been altered, I would strongly recommend that you reset the router to its default configuration. Usually, this can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 10 seconds)"


  • This is the difficult part.
    First get to the routers server. To do that type http:\\192.168.1.1 in the address bar and click Enter. You get the log in window.
    Fill in the password you have already found and you will get the configuration page.
    Configure the router to allow you to connect to your ISP server. In some routers it is done by a setup wizard. But you have to fill in the log in password your ISP has initially given to you.
    You can also call your ISP if you don't have your initial password.
    Don't forget to change the routers default password and set a strong password. Note down the password and keep it somewhere for future reference.


  • Please make sure of the following settings:
    • Go to start => Control panel => Double-click Network and Sharing Center.
    • In the left window select Manage network Connection.
    • In the right window right-click Local Area connection and select Properties .
    • Internet Protocol Version 6 (IP6v) should be checked. Double-click on it: Make sure of the following settings:
    • The option Obtain an IP address automatically should be checked.
    • The option Obtain DNS server address automatically should be checked.

    • Click OK.
    • Internet Protocol Version 4 (IP4v) should be checked. Double-click on it.
      • The option Obtain an IP address automatically should be checked.
      • The option Obtain DNS server address automatically should be checked.
    • Click OK twice.
    • If you should change any setting reboot the computer.
