How do I reset my Actiontec C1000A to factory default settings?
There are 2 main methods that we use to reset the C1000A
1st Method: Begin with the unit powered up and with a solid Green Power light. Then, using a small tool depress and hold the Reset button on the back of the device just until you see the color of the Power light change from Green to Amber. We recommend using a Paperclip or pen cartridge. Release the button after the power light turns amber, then wait until your modem reboots (1-2 minutes).
The length of time that the Reset button must be held to accomplish the reset varies from model to model, but as long as the Reset button is released while the power light is Amber the Reset will be successful.
2nd Method: Log into the device, click on Advanced, click on Configuration, click on the Restore button next to “Restore Modem to Factory Default State”. The modem will reset and reboot to factory defaults.
Does this device have parental controls with it?
Yes! There are parental controls built in to the admin settings panel. You can set up all of your preferences after activating with your provider.
I want to use my Linksys WIFI router as the WIFI connection using my C1000a as a DSL modem with the WIFI turned off. Is this possible?
Absolutely! You can access the settings of the modem through the admin panel to disable the built-in wireless. Then, attach your own router using “Bridge Mode” in order to forward the WiFi to the other device.
