Resetting your Verizon MI424WR router to the factory defaults during initial setup If you've forgotten your router user name or password, you must reset your router to the factory defaults. This allows you to access the configuration utility where you can set up your network, as well as create a new user name and password.

To reset your Verizon router:
  1. With the power on (Power LED on front panel should be lit green), use the pointed end of a paper clip to press and hold the Reset button for 10 seconds.

  2. Figure depicting back panel of the Verizon MI424WR router.

  3. Release the Reset button. The Verizon router will automatically reboot itself. Wait 15 seconds before resuming setup.

  4. The router will return to the default settings of admin as the user name and password as the password. The SSID and WEP encryption key have also returned to the settings printed on the label affixed to the bottom of your router.

  5. If you kept the default security settings in Step 4, click the Back button below and enter admin as the user name and password as the password. You can then continue with the instructions that follow.

    If you changed the security settings in Step 4, you must return to Step 4 and repeat the steps to configure your security settings.
