To access the WE/WG's boot loader menu:

1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the router LAN port to your PC.

2. Change your PC's IP address on the network card to and reboot your PC.

3. Open your web browser to

4. Clear the cache in your web browser (i.e., press Ctrl and F5 at same time, may vary by web browser being used).

5. Remove the power from the router.

6. Press and hold the reset button on the rear of the router (and don’t let go) and plug the power back in.

7. Keep holding the reset button until the restore user interface loads into the web browser. It should not take over a minute.

8. If the restore interface failed to load in the web browser, repeat the process, only this time watch the LED lights on the router.

9. When the LED’s start settling down (10 to 15 seconds) release the reset button and give it a few minutes for the Menu to appear.

NOTE: This can be an aggravating process and may take several tries to succeed. As one member remarked, its all about timing (i.e., knowing when to release the reset button) that, after succeeding a few times, develops a sort of touch to the timing. In short, be patient. The method will work.

In the event your boot loader screen comes up in Chinese, see this TOPIC
