Your Asus router can also be reset back to its factory settings through the router’s web interface accessed through the link router.asus.com.
It is assumed that you already are connected to your router, just open the web browser and enter the web link router.asus.com and then authenticate the login page with a username and password.
Once the login window is successfully authorized with some default or custom login details, head towards the Router settings or Router Admin tab or simply router reset button (whatever the case may be) and click that tab.
Once you have clicked the reset tab, the router interface will again ask for your confirmation, you have to confirm again the router’s reset and once confirmed the whole Asus router reset process will be initiated and completed itself.
Key points- It is strongly recommended not to use the wireless connection when performing any of the router modifications as wireless connections are not as secure as wired connections are.
