If at some point you can no longer connect to the Technicolor TG582n modem, or you want to make a fresh install, it is useful to perform a reset to factory defaults. When resetting this model the lights go out and then cycle back up green.
Do not advise customers to hold the button down until a red light comes on. Holding down the reset button for too long (18-20 seconds) will put the modem into a "receive new firmware" mode and an orange light will appear. This will lock most of the ports. If this happens turn the modem off for a minute before attempting the reset process.
Reset via the Reset Button
- Make sure the Technicolor TG582n modem is turned on
- Take a paperclip or pin and push the RESET button down for between 7 and 10 seconds
- When the lights on the Technicolor TG582n modem turns off release the reset button
- The lights will then cycle back up green
Note: It may take up to 5 minutes to re-establish a broadband connection. And once the reset is complete, all of your wireless clients will have to be reconnected back to the modem.
