How do I reset my router and modem?

We have a Hughesnet modem and a Cisco Valet router. My internet speed is a little slow and my satellite internet provider recommended rebooting my computer, as well as, resetting my router and modem. How do I do this?

My husband is a tech guy at Staples, but he's at work right now, otherwise I'd just ask him to reset it.

  • Unplug it, wait one min. Plug it back in... You're set...

  • Basically you shut it all down and unplug everything, then wait about 10 seconds and replug it in.

  • That's what they told me to do. It worked.
    Make sure you have your computer backed up before you reboot, all your pictures and any programs you put on it will be gone!
