    Question Archer C7 resets itself to factory settings after power outage

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Hi everyone !

    I'm equipped with an Archer C7 since february. Today there has been a power outage for 15min in the whole neighborhood. When the power came back, my archer C7 was reset in factory settings... Thus all my devices were unable to connect to the internet. I had to do a full reconfiguration to make it work again...

    That's really annoying because I can afford to have all my devices going offline if i'm not at home... And I also can't afford to spend a long time reconfiguring all my lan settings.

    What can be the cause of this ? How can I solve it ?

    Thanks for your help...

    How you tell the router get to factory settings?
    All the settings disappeared?
    Try to check whether the firmware is the latest one.
    If it's not, try to update.

    Also after getting the router all set up, Back it up. That way if you need to recover, it would be quicker.

    All settings disappeared. After the outage it was exactly like when I unboxed it... And the firmware was the latest one... I backed all my settings. But I hope it won't happen again

    This is how to factory reset the routerTo perform a factory reset, please follow Below steps.Power on the TP-Link Router, place a paper clip or Pin into the hole on the back of the Router labeled Reset.Hold paper clip or pin down for 10 to 15 seconds and release.The Router will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the Router is reset.Please Note, Resetting the TP-Link router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will only change all settings back to factory defaults.Just a guess.... Maybe the reset button is stuck down as that what is sounds like to me. Power off the router and use a paper clip and see if you can feel or hear the button click.
