A router is a network hardware with comes with two or more antenna like projections. Various companies like Eero Pro, BT, Synology, BT, Asus etc. are some of the most widely known and used router brands. In its basic sense, a router essentially connects a local area network to the internet. Now a days, the transport of information across the internet usually occurs from router to router, until it finally reaches its intended destination. A BT router acts as the centre of the network that oversees and regulates the exchange and transport of data from one system to another. Data usually travels in the form of small packets and the router determines from where a packet originates and its intended destination.
Usually, the most common places where we can see routers are residential and small office networks. The Local Area Network formed by a router that is connected wirelessly is usually known as a Wi-Fi. This has led to a common misconception of the terms Wi-Fi and router. A Wi-Fi thus refers to a common connection to the internet, but obviously, a stable network connection has to be already active for a Wi-Fi to exist. A BT router on the other hand has direct connection to the internet, usually via an Ethernet or fibre optic cable and allows other devices to connect through it to the internet, thus giving rise to a Wi-Fi network.
BT produce and manufacture powerful and robust routers which are made with high end equipments to provide the user the best service at the lowest possible cost. Routers are known to be easily hackable and anyone can enter unnoticed if proper security measures are not followed. This is why it is always a good idea to update your pass word regularly and never leaving any firmware or antivirus update patches pending because these greatly aid in solidifying the security, privacy and authenticity of any home based network systems and protect the member devices from uninvited guests.
Resetting a BT router in the final procedure in case all else has failed. In extremely dire cases such as when the user name and login password of your router has been changed along with the security questions by an outside source without your knowledge or permission. In such cases, no amount of troubleshooting is helpful for your BT router. But, resetting the router will completely remove any and all changes and personalization you have ever made on your router and bring it back to its factory settings. In other words, it will return to the way it was when you first bought it from the market.
Before beginning the reset procedure, it should be made sure that all other troubleshooting options like rebooting and password update are not working and it is necessary to undergo the reset procedure. The BT router reset procedure is a little complicated. So, you must follow the steps and instructions given bellow exactly as written because if you do not follow the procedure, no matter how much or how many times you press the reset button, it will not make any change.
The reset button is usually hidden inconspicuously so as to prevent people from pressing the reset button involuntarily .It can be concealed inside a hole or some may also have the reset button stick out. In certain rare models, the WPS button can also serve as a reset button in disguise. In some cases like concealed in a hole, you may not be able to reach it directly and may require the aid of some sharp object like a pin to press the button.
Ensuring that the BT router remains powered on, that is, the router has current supply and is turned on, press the reset button and keep holding for 30 seconds. Without leaving the button, turn off the power supply and keep holding the reset button for 30 more seconds. After that is complete, keep pressing the reset button while you turn the power supply back ok.
Since the BT router has been returned to its factory settings, it is always advisable to change the password so that others cannot access and hamper your network settings. You can also configure secondary modifications like security measures and child settings to keep your network the way you are comfortable with. If you want to keep the factory settings you can obviously skip this step but it always recommended to improve security, privacy and protection.
Now, your BT router will begin its reset procedure. This is known as the 30-30-30 router reset method.
