In this article, we will explore the process of resetting the device to its default and factory settings, elucidating key aspects of this procedure.
Reset or Reboot
Press the button for about 5 seconds to reboot the Zyxel Device.
Press the button for about 7 seconds (or until the PWR/SYS LED starts to blink), then release it to return the Zyxel Device to the default configuration (password is 1234, LAN IP address 192.168.168.1 and so on).
Press the button in for more than 30 seconds, then release it to return the Zyxel Device to factory defaults. The Zyxel Device PWR/SYS LED will blink green while booting up.
The USER LED is located at the front panel of the Zyxel Device. Use this LED to check one of the following:
•Admin account login status.
•User IP address locked out status.
•New firmware available for update.
Select how you want the USER LED to behave.
•Select Admin login (green on) if you want the USER LED to be steady green when there are admin accounts logged into the Zyxel Device.
•Select User Lockout (amber on) if you want the USER LED to be steady amber when a user IP address is locked out of the Zyxel Device. A user IP address will be locked out when the user has logged into the Zyxel Device unsuccessfully (for example, wrong password) for more than three times.
•Select License Expired (amber on) if you want the USER LED to be steady amber when a Zyxel Device service license has expired.
•Select New Firmware Available (green blinking) if you want the USER LED to blink green when there is new firmware available for upload.
•Select Off to turn off the USER LED.
