If "real" routers could be reset with just a toothpick then I bet Dusty Baker is on the "No Entry" list of every ISP data center in the world. .....If you don't know who Dusty Baker is then that will make no sense to you, but if you know who he is you are probably on the floor right about now. lol.
How do I lock people out of my network?

Perhaps for safetiness. It might cause big dissasters if someone without permissions touch it u know just a toothpic.. no need for passwords xD
Enterprise routers do no usually have reset buttons at all.

Both of these "security" features serve only one purpose: Make it a PAIN IN THE A** for YOU to join machines to YOUR network.
Does little to NOTHING to stop somebody trying to break in.
Just use WPA2 with a strong pass and be done with it.
QoS would be the best way to still give people access but really limit what they can do. Not sure if your router will have it though!
I know mine does not.
