How to reset your Talktalk router

In the event your Talktalk has lost its Internet connection, performing a simple reset will often remedy the problem. Restoring your router to its factory settings can help with speed issues or other connection problems. The router has a reset button to accomplish this.

Note: Doing a full reset will wipe your router to factory settings. If you’ve changed any settings, such as your password, you’ll need to update them again once your router has booted up.

Resetting your router

Perform the following steps in order-

Total Time: 5 minutes

  1. Switch your router on, if it isn’t already

  2. Locate the reset button. This is usually on the back or side of your router.

  3. Gently push a pin, a straightened paperclip, or another appropriate item into the hole until you feel a click. Hold it for 30 seconds.

    Any lights on the front of the router should turn off and come back on again.

  4. Once your router has fully booted and any lights are on, you can reconnect your devices to your Wi-Fi.

    If the power light on your Super Router is red or the light on your Wi-Fi Hub stays solid amber for more than 15 minutes, then your router may be faulty.
