    I've tried and tried pushing the button while plugging it in and waiting for light to turn green flashing, which it does but it STILL KEEPS my old settings.

    I'm trying to sell 2 of them which I don't need any longer but one I want to keep and use it as an wifi extender.

    I've read numerous comments that other people can't seem to reset it either.

    Is there a way to do this or am I missing something.

    Have you tried pressing and holding the button for at least 60 seconds? When the light starts flashing first, all it does it remove the password. A full 60 seconds is required to remove everything. Follow the instructions here: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT3728

    I have not tried a full 60 seconds.

    From my reading it was saying till the light blinks green fast.

    But I'll try this.

    I'll report back.

    Make sure you follow the factory reset option. That's the one you want.
