From your signature you have an Orbi. Power on your Orbi router and wait about 2-3 minutes until it's fully booted.

Then using the paperclip, hold in the reset button for ~30 seconds (it takes only about 10 seconds, but it's ok to hold it longer).

 

Additionally, there's a great 2 minute video here, with reminders (this will un-pair your satleites, you need to reset them too, etc).

Re: reset time

If it's a stubborn one, which I've run across a few, turn off th Orbi, hold the reset button in and turn the Orbi on. Keep holding the reset button until you see flashing red power light.

There's always a logical answer, if you have all the facts!

Re: reset time

Press the reset button for only 15 seconds then release is recommended for a reset.

Re: reset time

Actually the textbook instructions are, which sometimes doesn't work:

Using a paper clip or similar object, press and hold the Reset button until the Power LED on your Orbi device blinks amber
