    Modem in access point mode


    HELP! I made a stupid decision in my modem properties and made it to be used as an access point. Now I can't connect to the internet through it to put it back to wireless network access. What do I need to do to get it back to original settings.

    Press and hold the reset button on the back. The manual tells you how to Factory Reset it. Always helps to read that first, than jumping on the forums first.

    The info is in the manual on how to do the factory reset. Read it my young Padawan. You will learn a lot.
