This document describes the various methods available for resetting a LANCOM to its factory settings.
The local IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.254, where xxx.xxx.xxx stands for your local network
The IP address 172.23.56.254, assuming that the LANCOM is not connected to a (pre-configured) local network.
There are two ways of resetting a LANCOM to its factory settings:
It is currently not possible to carry out a reset with WEBconfig, the web-based configuration GUI.
The reset button on the LANCOM:
Every LANCOM has a reset button which can be pressed with a pointed object (e.g. a ball-point pen). Pressing the button for 5 seconds or longer restarts the device and resets the configuration to its factory settings.
All LEDs on the device light up continuously in red. Once the switch is released the LANCOM will restart with the factory settings restored.
Since LCOS 8.0 it is possible to load a rollout configuratin which is stored in the routers memory. To load this rollout configuration you have to press the reset button for 15 seconds or longer. The rollout configuration deletes and overwrites the current configuration. For more details refer to .
Resetting with the console:
1. Start a console session with the LANCOM (e.g. with Telnet or SSH) and login with your user name and password.
2. Enter the following command:
3. Press the enter key.
4. Enter your password and press the enter key again.
