Hi thanks Byron, no it does not. I don't have a reset button as on the picture

Thanks. Let me do a little checking.

In the meantime try this to see if you can get it going. Unplug the power from both the router and your modem for 60 seconds.

Leave the network cable between them connected. Plug in only the modem and wait till it is fully up. Such that all the lights

indicate it is connected to the internet. Then, plug the router in and allow it 2 minutes to come up.

Let me know if any of the lights are acting in an unusual manner.

Here's the reset button (see attachment below)

With the router powered on, use a pointed object to hold the button down for 10 seconds and release.

You should see the lights flash off & on and then it takes about 60 seconds after releasing the

button for the reset to complete.
