Has your Eero been malfunctioning lately, and you’ve been wondering how to reset Eero? Luckily, resetting it is easy peasy. All you need to do is press a button, and voila!
You can reset your Eero router in 2 ways: soft reset and hard reset. A soft reset saves all advanced settings and other data. Meanwhile, a hard reset wipes out all custom settings, data, and network configuration.
You need to carefully choose a method before resetting your device. If you've decided, let’s go.
How to soft reset
A soft reset clears all network configurations while preserving settings and other data. You can keep sessions and advanced settings like IP reservations and port forwarding configurations.
It also allows you to keep the Eero device connected to the network. So you won’t need to restart the setup process all over again.
To soft reset your Eero, here’s what you need to do:
- Find the reset button on your Eero.
- Press and hold for 5-10 seconds.
- Release the button when the LED flashes yellow.
- Wait for 5-10 minutes or until the LED turns a solid white light.
When the reset is complete, check your eero app. You should see a solid white with a green outline.
A soft reset is the best thing to do if you just want to boost your device’s performance. A soft reboot saves you time and other unnecessary steps.
How to hard reset
A hard reset reverts your device back to its old factory setting. It completely erases all network configurations, network settings, and other data. It also removes your Eero from the network.
To hard reset your Eero, here are things you need to do:
- Locate the reset button on your Eero.
- Press and hold for 15 seconds.
- When the LED status light flashes red, release the button.
- Wait a couple of minutes for the process to finish.
- If the Eero flashes a blinking blue light, the process is complete.
After a hard reset, the device is ready for the setup process. This method is best if you plan to sell your Eero or if there are persistent problems that weren’t solved during a soft reset.
