To reset an Orbi router:

Total Time: 2 minutes

  1. Make sure your Orbi device is powered on.

  2. Using a paper clip or similar object, press and hold the Reset button until the Power LED on your Orbi device blinks amber.

    Note: If you are resetting a wall-plug satellite, the ring LED blinks amber. Your Orbi device is now factory reset.

An Orbi router is a type of wireless router that uses mesh networking technology to provide seamless internet coverage throughout your home or office. Unlike traditional routers, which can only cover a limited area, an Orbi router uses multiple access points to create a single, high-speed network that covers a much larger area. In addition, Orbi routers are designed to work together with other Orbi devices, such as the Orbi satellite, to extend the reach of your network even further. Whether you’re trying to stay connected in a large home or keep your business online during a power outage, an Orbi router can provide the reliable coverage you need. If mesh makes sense in your home and you just want something simple and inexpensive, it’s a perfectly fine choice.

To reset your Orbi router, you will need to locate the reset button on the back of the router. Press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds, and then release it. The router will then reset and restart. It may take a few minutes for the router to fully reset and restart.
