Question
How do I reset my SB6183 to factory default?
Answer
In some cases the SB6183 modem may need to be reset to its factory default state, and clear all of the previous settings.  The modem can be reset back to the factory default by logging in the GUI (Graphical User Interface).  This document describes how to reset the SB6183 to factory defaults within the GUI.

CAUTION: This process will clear all configurations and should be used as the last resort.  Performing a Factory Reset will erase any configuration changes that have been made and requires the modem to be reprovisioned for Internet access. 

NOTE: Resetting the cable modem may take 5 to 30 minutes.


Factory Reset in the GUI

  1. Disconnect the coaxial cable.
     
  2. Power cycle the unit by disconnecting the power cord for 10 seconds, then reconnect the power cord.
