8.1 Initialization of the Gateway
Initialization means deletion of settings made after installation of the Gateway, thereby
restoring the Gateway to the state of factory shipment. When the Gateway does not
operate properly or when the Gateway is to participate in a completely different network,
it is recommended that you initialize the Gateway and set up the Gateway from scratch.
Be noted, however, that this initialization completely deletes the settings you made to the
Gateway. It is advised that you back up the current settings onto an external medium
before you perform initialization.
Log-in authentication settings of user ID and password are important personal
information which, if stolen, may be abused. Take utmost care in managing your
user ID and password.
Initialization completely deletes the settings you made to the Gateway. It is
advised that you back up the current settings onto a hard disk of your PC or similar
medium before you perform initialization.
To perform initialization, follow the steps below.
Unplug the power cord from the outlet to turn off power of the Gateway.
While pressing down the INIT button in the rear access area of the Gateway (see
Section 1.2 for the button location), plug the power cord into the outlet to turn on
power of the Gateway.
Keep pressing down the INIT button for 10 seconds or longer. The Gateway starts
up in the state of factory shipment.
