Using the Cable Modem

Reset Switch

The reset switch can be found behind a "toothpick hole" on
the back panel. It performs two functions:
1.
Basic Reset – Press and release the switch to make it
perform the same function as disconnecting the power
from the modem. It will start up again in Initialization
Mode.
2.
Factory Default Reset – Unplug the modem from the
AC power. Press and hold the reset switch while
plugging the modem into AC power. Continue holding
the switch. Release the switch when all lights come on
(about 6 seconds). This will return the modem to a
factory "out of box" condition. This should only be
done if the cable modem has been taken out of
service in one location and is being reconnected
to a different service, or if instructed to do so by
your cable company.
