SOHO Router Resets & EM Meter Basics

Hello friends! In this video I show how to reset a router by using the reset button and the router reset within the firmware. I also demonstrate how to use an EM meter to measure the output of the antennas. Click to watch the video and scroll down for more information.

This TP-Link AC5400 device performed well for its intended use. A couple of things I noted with this device (hardware v2) include the lack of syslog support, and also passwords are displayed in clear text when you type them (come on now…) – that’s as of firmware version 160310. But otherwise, it works well. Of course, there are always newer routers arriving… as of the writing of this post, the AD7200 is the latest – it incorporates a 60 GHz band.

See this link for the AC5400 emulator. Great way to practice on the router without having to buy it!

See this link for the Trifield 100XE EMF Meter. I use it fairly often, as an analog meter it meets my requirements for testing EM fields, electric fields, and magnetic fields.
