Nighthawk 6700v3 factory reset


Nighthawk 6700v3 factory reset

I'm trying to do a factory reset on my Nighhawk 6700v3 but it won't work.  For some reason when I try to retrieve the admin password.  I've tried using ther recovery tool but it the answers I'm submitting aren't correct so I have no idea what the correct answers are.  I've tried factory resetting the router according to the instructions but I continue to have the same issue.  The factory admin login information doesn't work and the same recovery questions are asked.  Is there another trip to resetting the router?

sounds like it is not being factory reset.


disconnect all cables except for power cord.  with router on, press and hold recessed reset button for 10 seconds.  When you press the button, you should feel/hear a tiny click.  Release and lights should start to turn off/flicker as router resets.  If you don't see that, something wrong with button?
