30 Reset D-Link Router Factory Settings and Default Password

Updated: January 1, 2017 / Home » Computer PC Hardware » Wireless Wifi Router

Have you somehow lost your D-Link router’s password? Perhaps the easiest way to gain access to your router’s admin interface is by restoring it to the default factory settings, however, if that is not possible, try method number two via the master password.

Method 1 – Restore Factory Settings

Default Router Password And Restore Factory Settings

As shown in the image above, insert the tip of a pen or a paper clip into the ‘reset’ hole, push the button for 5 seconds or more, make sure the power is on for the router. For confirmation of resetting the router to default settings, you should be able to see all of the router’s LED flashes or blinks, on certain models the router would restart itself. When you’re done, access the router with the default username and password as stated in your user manual.

Method 2 – Master Key / Password

Every router comes with a master key or password, these set of password enables you to access the router without restoring or losing the settings.

        @Nick – Usually the username is ‘admin’ and the password is blank for normal dlink. Just to make things clear, leave the password box empty.

    I would like to restore my Dlink-615 router to factory setting. The CD that came with the router starts up with the Start Up Wizard. I would like to start all over with creating settings, user password and a new SSID. The error messages states that I have to reconfigure using the original password which has been changed so many times by resetting. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      Use the master password, if all else fails. Find a pin and hit the reset button.

    i need to know how will i do if i logged in as user and i need to get adminstrator password

    Everyone in here with issues with the Username/Password on the login screen or Reset the dlink router to Factory Defaults – All you have to do is HOLD the reset bottum in the back of your router for at least 30 secs until you see lights flashing.
    (IF it didn’t reset your setting maybe you need to hold the reset botton for a longer time frame)

    Your master Username and Password are on the Label under your router. Flip your router and you will see your Default Master Key username and password on the label of your router.

    FYI, Resetting to Factory defaults – YES will remove you WEP / WPA security key and make your internet Unsecure network that you would need to set it up again.

    DLINK 615 – CD comes with it with instructions – HOLD the RESET bottum for 30+ sec and it will reset everything back to factory defaults and then you can use the CD to set it up in your CD way.

    I hope this helps

    I have reset my DLINK Dir600 to factory defaults and reconfigured my wireless security successfully. Now I want to disable DHCP and DNS as I have another router in front of this one which handles DHCP and DNS. However the web software will not allow me to disable the DHCP and DNS settings on the manual LAN page. It will not let be turn off the check boxes. Any suggestions as to how disable this functionality as it is preventing my wireless subnet from accessing the Internet.

    Recently I bought a second hand ‘D-Link’ switch (DGS 3024) . The previous owner didn’t do a factory reset and did not provide a username and password. Also the IP adress was set to an unknown value. Value not corresponding to my network ID. I need to acces the switch to set a new IP adress so i can use the web interface and configure the switch. I tried connecting it with a serial interface but the first thing it asks is the username and password. Does someone have an idea to do a hard reset of this switch? The IP address should then reset to the default address10.90.90.90.

    PS: I tried opening the switch and take out the battery for 2 minutes. No result though.

    Thank you in advance

    I honestly think we should be able to file a class action lawsuit against D-Link, because of all the emails I have read they have something to do with not being able to reset your password, which is my problem. I have a desktop which has the router d-link 601 hooked up to it and my laptop gets wireless just fine, but i have tried for months to pick up my wireless on my tablet, now my ipad with no results, and the help desk at D-link are no help. i had to pay $35.00 for a help call once, and the problem continues. if someone can help me with this that would be better than the support at D-Link.

      It could be a setting issue? Why not reset the router settings to default factory settings?

    I never set my own password, left it at default, yet it will not log in at all. I keep getting some 404 error message. UGH
    I desperatly need in to open a port for new security cameras we just installed and it wont let me in at all.

      @Annie – Just reset the router, some router comes with a physical button. Find the pin hole and push the button to reset it. Then use the default username and password to set it up again.

      if the reset button doesn’t work, it probably means the router is spoiled.
