Nope. No clue since you didn't bother to supply the maker and model
number. Go to the manufacturers web pile and read the reset
procedure. Some require holding down the reset button for an extended
period before they actually rest the router. Others don't really
offer a reset and will clear the flash ram when the reset button is
held down. Some have to be reset within the first few seconds of
applying power, or nothing happens. Linksys is especially tricky, but
the procedure varies with model number. In general, if you held it
down for 30 seconds or more, it should properly reset. Meanwhile, try
plugging your computah's ethernet port into one of the LAN ports and
see if you can reset it from the web based admin menu. Also, you
might want to remember or scribble onto paper what you're doing so
that you later undo the damage.
