Reset Netgear IP Address To Default. If you look at the rear of your Netgear router, you will find a tiny red reset button. The button will be recessed, so you’ll need a paperclip or the tip of a pencil to depress it.
Note: Some NETGEAR routers use a different IP address.
A router reset replaces all of its network settings with the manufacturer's defaults, and this includes the local IP address. Even if an administrator has changed the default address before, resetting the router will change it back.
If the user has forgotten his/her password or the Netgear IP address is no longer working correctly, he/she can reset the router by pushing any small, pointed object into the “Reset” button found on the bottom of the router.
