In this guide we cover how to reset the BEC-Technologies 7402GTMR4-SCED router. There is a lot of confusion between the words reset and reboot. To reboot something means to cycle it's power by turning it off and back on again. When you reset something you take all it's settings and revert them back to factory defaults.
Warning: Be careful when resetting a router. Problems arise when you are unaware of the settings that change. We recommend creating a list of settings you know will change. Consider the following when making this list:
To reset the BEC-Technologies 7402GTMR4-SCED router you first need to locate the tiny reset button. Normally this will be found on the back panel of the device. See image below.
With the router on take the end of an unwound paperclip and press and hold the reset button for over 6 seconds.
Please don't forget that this erases every setting you have ever changed in this router. We strongly urge you to try other troubleshooting methods before a reset is preformed.
When you are finished with the reset process you need to login using the proper default username and password from the factory. We have found these for you and included them in the BEC-Technologies 7402GTMR4-SCED Login Guide.
The next step is changing the default password. It is never a good idea to leave a password as it's default. When you change this if you need help take a look at our Choosing a Strong Password guide.
Tip: It's okay to write this password down on a piece of paper and attach it to the bottom of the router if your router is in a secure location.
The last setting we will discuss is the WiFi settings. These have been reset as well. Some router companies like to leave the security open as the default. This means their is no encryption or security for your network. We recommend using the security of WPA2-PSK. If you need help with this check out our How to Setup WiFi on the BEC-Technologies 7402GTMR4-SCED guide.
