Problem Connecting to MikroTik Switch

 After many days of not working on my mikrotik routers and switches for my WISP(Wireless Internet Service Provider), I forgot how to login into my c. I searched in my password protection file and I did not find any stored password for the switch. After while of trying this and that, I wanted to reset the switch to it's default setting. So I searched for a while how to reset this mikrotik CRS326-24G-2S+RM router/switch. I found out that, perhaps from a youtube video(but for a completely different switch) that in order to reset the CRS326-24G-2S+RM, we have to do the following

1. Turn off the power supply(I simply took out the power jack from the main) to the switch

2. Then press the reset button and keep pressing. I had to use a small pin and inserted into the reset button on Mikrotik CRS326-24G-2S+RM.

3. Then turn on the power supply to the switch. Again I simply inserted back the switch power jack into the main socket.

4. At this stage, you should start a LED blinking. When this happens release the reset button.

After I did this, I opened the WinBox application and click on the switch option and successfully logged into the Mikrotik CRS326-24G-2S+RM switch with admin and no password. This showed that the switch was successfully reset.

I was just happy that I logged into the switch, who knows, what if the reset method had failed. 

My setting today is as follows. I have two mikrotik CCR2004-16G-2S+ routers and one mikrotik CRS326-24G-2S+RM router/switch. These are the only routers and switch that I have in mind to use in my core network of the wireless ISP I am building.
