Power cycle mode 

You can power cycle your internet modem by unplugging it and the wifi router from the power source, waiting for a minute, then plugging them back in. Your modem should have a solid green light and a blue light.

To reset the Blink Module, press and hold the reset button for at least 10 seconds. The button is located on the side of the module. Hold the button until the light turns red.
