I have F5D7630 router with ADSL and WiFi.

I have used but could not get website, I have tried variation 192.168.2.x and 192.168.1.x and could not get Belkin website.

The unit is still working but wi-fi was switched on, I need to turn it off.

Is there way of implementing factory reset so I can log on into website and re-configure the router.
