This chapter is an overview on the various ways of performing a Factory Reset on a RUT240 device.

Reset Button

Reset button is located on the rear panel of the device. It is encapsulated in a blue square in the picture below.

The Reset button has a couple of functions:

Reboot the device. After the device has started and if the Reset button is pressed for up to 4 seconds, the device will reboot. Start of the reboot will be indicated by flashing of all 5 signal strength LEDs together with green connection status LED.

Reset to defaults. After the device has started if the Reset button is pressed for at least 5 seconds, the device will reset all user changes to factory defaults and reboot. To help the user determine how long the Reset button should be pressed, signal strength LEDs indicate the elapsed time. All 5 lit LEDs means that 5 seconds have passed and the Reset button can be released. Start of the reset to defaults will be indicated by flashing of all 5 signal strength LEDs together with a red connection status LED.

SIM PIN on the main SIM card is the only user parameter that is kept after a Factory Reset.

WebUI

You can also perform a Factory Reset from the router's WebUI. To do so, login to the router and go to Administration section found under System (System->Administration). In the very bottom of the General tab of the Administration section there's a Restore button that performs a Factory Reset. After clicking this button you will be prompted with a pop-up asking you if you are sure about the reset.

SMS

Another way to perform a Factory Reset is via SMS Utilities. There is a default Factory Reset SMS rule already configured in the router. The default Authorization method for the rule is By router admin password. Therefore, to perform a Factory Reset via SMS (if the particular SMS rule is unconfigured) you'll have to send an SMS meassage containing the text "admin01 restore" to the router, only replace admin01 with your own router's admin password. You can find more on SMS Utilities Rules here

via SSH

To perform a Factory Reset via SSH the firstboot command is used. Simply enter firstboot in the SSH console and press Enter. After this you will be asked to confirm the reset. Type the letter y and press enter if you are sure about the reset, type the letter n if you wish to cancel the reset. If you agreed to perform a Factory reset, next type in reboot and press Enter. The router will be reset to it's factory settings and rebooted.

Default login information

Since all of the router's configurations are deleted and restored to defaults after a Factory Reset, you'll need to use the router's default login information in order to login to the router. For that reason the default login information is provided just below:

Default Address: 192.168.1.1

Default Username: admin

Default Password: admin01
