The process of using a paperclip to reset a modem or router to its factory default settings. This process involves unfolding the paperclip and sticking the end of it into a small hole in the router designed specifically for this purpose.
After forgetting my modem's password I had to call my ISP and they said I had to paperclip it. After paperclipping it I had to reconfigure it from scratch.
