On this page I will be explaining how to reset the Dlink DNS-323 storage device. Before I begin I want to explain the difference between a reset and a reboot. When you reboot a device all you are doing is cycling the power to the device. When you reset device you are taking all the settings and returning them to how they were from the factory. This means every personal setting you have ever changed on the user interface is erased and replaced with factory values.
Warning: Resetting this unit is a big troubleshooting step and should not be taken lightly. We highly recommend that you make a list of any settings you have changed on this units graphical user interface. Consider the following:
- This unit’s main username and password to access the interface are erased and put back to the original login values.
- If you have made any LAN setting changes or created special groups in the user interface these are all erased and put back to how they were from the factory.
According to the manual the information on your hard drives will still be intact after the reset is complete. If you are worried we recommend removing the hard drives before resetting the unit.

Reset the Dlink DNS-323
First, you need to find the reset button on the outside of the device. This tiny pinhole can be found on the back panel. Take a look at the image below.
Take a straightened paperclip and press down on the reset button for about 10 seconds. This begins the reset process.
Tip: Some routers will only reboot the unit if you don’t hold this button down for long enough.
Since this reset erases every personal change you have ever made to the router’s interface we recommend trying other methods of fixing your problem before you decide you want to reset this network storage enclosure.
Login to the Dlink DNS-323
Following that you’ll need to log into your Dlink DNS-323 network storage. This is accomplished by using the default username and password. Don’t know where to find these? We have these provided for you in our Login Guide.
Tip: Defaults not logging you in? It may be because the reset button wasn’t held down for long enough.
Change Your Password
Now that you’ve logged into your device we recommend setting a new password for it. Remember that this protects your interface settings. For more help be sure to check out our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.
Tip: Keep from losing your new password by writing it on a sticky note and putting it on the underside of the unit.

The D-Link DNS-323 router has No WiFi, 1 Gigabit ETH-ports and 0 USB-ports.
If your DNS-323 router is not working as it should, dropping connections or not being responsive, you should first do a reset of the router to see if the problems persist. Other scenarios where you might want to reset your router is if you’ve forgotten the password or misconfigured it and can’t get access anymore.
Your can reset your D-Link DNS-323 in the following way(s):
- Locate the reset button on the back off the router
- While the unit is powered on, press the reset button with a sharp object (e.g. paperclip)
- Hold the button pressed for 10 seconds, then release.
- The unit will reboot by itself and once the WLAN light stops blinking the factory reset is done.
- You can now setup your router again through the user interface
This process usually works for resetting any router to it’s factory setting.
Note: It is worth reading more about how to reset routers with the 30 30 30 reset and what the risks and considerations are when resetting your router this way, instead of just rebooting it.
If you have performed a reset of your DNS-323 device or not changed the defaults, you should be able to access it with the following settings:
Default Gateway IP: 192.168.0.32 D-Link login instructions
Default username: admin D-Link router default password list
Default password: blank
Default subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default DNS server: 192.168.0.32
Note: If you are using the default settings you should change them to increase security and prevent unathorized access to your network.
To login to the DNS-323 router and change the settings, you can follow these steps:
- Make sure you are connected to the router’s network, either by Wi-Fi or ethernet cable.
- Open your browser and visit http://192.168.0.32
- You should be prompted with a login dialogue.
- Enter the username: admin and the password blank
Note: If you have already changed the password use that instead.
- You will now be logged in. If you haven’t yet changed the defaul password, we recommend that you change it first thing you do after logging in.
If these instructions don’t work for your router, you can always try a factory reset to get the default, or try some other common D-Link credentials, as they can usually be shared across models/variants.
