How to Reset BSNL Modem to Factory Default Settings

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is one of the leading Internet Service Providers in India. Though they provide a preconfigured modem while taking Internet connection, we may need to reset and reconfigure it due to several reasons. 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 reset BSNL Gateway is to fix some network connectivity issues. This article is for those who want to reset BSNL modem to factory default settings.

There are two different methods to reset a BSNL modem to factory settings. They are soft and hardware reset. In soft reset, we should log in to the BSNL modem configuration page and select the option to restore default or factory default.
