Devices like Comfast CF-EW73 access points can help you fulfill networking requirements effectively. You can edit the network settings on your Comfast access point and start using the internet safely. But issues with the configuration can bring about complications with the extender device.
Now, you can indeed follow some steps to resolve issues but what if they don’t help? This blog will walk you through the steps to quickly reset the Comfast CF-EW73 and get back to using the internet again.
You might need to reset your Comfast extender due to issues with the login page or completing the comfast setup process . Furthermore, if you are experiencing issues with making the latest firmware update , or if you have forgotten your Comfast extender’s login password, you will need to follow the troubleshoting steps.
But, if following these doesn’t help as well, you will need to reset the device to factory settings. This will put the CF-EW73 access point in the default factory state. Once the device is reset, you can reconfigure the settings again.
Once you reset the access point settings to the default factory state, the customizations get delete. All the changes made to the network settings like the network SSID, password, and more are reset to the factory state. You will then need to reconfigure the network and device settings using the backup that you took or from scratch.
Apart from following the steps to factory reset the device, you can always try rebooting it or power cycling the same. This can help resolve a number of issues including network degradation, performance issues, and more. Rebooting the device can help reset the device activity and clear the device memory thus making it available for the more important tasks.
You can reset your Comfast CF-EW73 access point using the push-button method. Here are some steps you can follow:
- Locate the reset button on the device. Open the bottom part of the device to find the same near the ethernet port.
- You can now use a thin object like a pin or a paperclip to press and hold the RESET button for about 5-6 seconds.
Note: Some devices may require you to hold the reset button for longer. So, if using the reset button for 5-6 seconds doesn’t yield any result, ensure that you keep holding the button for longer. Once the device reacts to the action, you can release the same.
- Once the LEDs on the device begin to blink, release the button and wait for some time till the access point device restarts itself.
- The access point will now restart and you can begin the reconfiguration process.
Important: When you reset your device, it may restart a few times. Do not power off or unplug the same from the power outlet till the reset process is complete. If you do so, the firmware of the device may get corrupt and you may need to follow the firmware overhaul process.
Now, once your Comfast CF-EW73 is reset completely, you can proceed with the configuration process again.
