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.
