    I was walked through the router reset process by a helpful fellow from India and it was an exercise in acrobatics. He had me depress the reset button for 20 seconds and then pull the power with the reset button still depressed and then reapply the power again.

    Is it necessary to power the router down in this manner or do I only need to press the reset button down for a specific period of time?

    Do you mean reset to factory defaults? For mine I turn the router off then turn is back on again whilst the reset button is depressed.

    I press the reset button for approx 20 secs. that is all that is needed.
