How to Reset BSNL Modem to Factory Default Settings

This article is for those who want to reset BSNL modem to factory default settings. If you forgot the username and password set for BSNL modem, you might need to change it to factory default and reconfigure it. Another reason to do is to fix certain network connectivity issues. There are two different methods to reset a BSNL modem to factory settings. They are soft and hardware reset. In soft reset we should login to the BSNL modem configuration page and select the option restore default or factory default. If you forgot the modem username and password, you cannot perform this procedure because without logon details you cannot access settings page. In that case only option left is to perform a hard reset. In this tutorial you will see both methods irrespective of the modem vendor and version.

Soft Reset BSNL Broadband Modem
  1. Login
