Default get info first before hard re-setting unit

This will reassign IP addresses to all the computers and devices on the network and possibly solve your problem. To set a static IP you first need to enter your routers configuration utility (just enter the default gateway address into a web browser) and find out which IP addresses are set
before doing this action if router a ISP's you will wipe all network info and be DOA for internet connection, will have to call isp for info.

what explained above is hard resetting router to factory defaults unless ISP has own firmware burned in router like some roger's cable routers.
