      Exclamation My Router just reset itselsf!

      I pulled the dsl lead from my router this morning as my speed had dropped to a low level overnight. The power was not touched.
      The router completely reset itself including the password!!
      All settings had returned to defaults(?) - SSID, wifi password, Port forwarding etc etc etc.
      Firmware remained at V2.02.44 and 7.03.01.66!

      Anybody else ever have this happen.
      Geoff, York.

      Any chance you pressed the reset button on the back by accident?

      None at all. I pulled the cable at the filter end!
      Lights stayed on all the time. DSL light went orange for a while but came back green. LAN lights never even flickered!

      It's a mystery!

      It's never a good idea to do this, much better to switch off the router and back on after a few mins to let it resync.
