By resetting the MA Network Switch, you return the switch to the state it was in when it was first time powered.
This is useful for troubleshooting problems that might be caused by manual changes after first time powered.
Refer to, factory defaults for a complete list of all settings and information they are reset.

Resetting the MA Switch is not reversible. After a reset, all previous settings are lost and cannot be recovered.
