For most products(Wired Router, Wireless Router, ADSL2+ Modem Router, TD-8616, TL-MR3420 V1, TL-MR3220 V1, TL-MR3040)
 
Directly press and hold the RESET button on the rear panel/panel layout with a pin for approximately 6 to 10 seconds when the device is running.Release the reset button and wait for the device to reboot.  If you can see all the lights flashing, then go off and  some lights go back on slowly during the process, that means the device has been reset successfully.
