In this guide we will show you how to reset your AirTies RT-211 router. Some people are confused with the terms reset and reboot. Rebooting the router refers to cycling the power by turning it off and back on again. Resetting the router is reverting all the settings back to factory original defaults.

Warning: Since this reset will erase all of your personal configurations, there are some things you need to consider before continuing.

  1. The router's main username and password are erased.
  2. Your WiFi username/SSID and password will be erased.
  3. You could lose Internet connection if you use a DSL connection and don't have your ISP username and password. Contact your ISP for this information.
  4. All of your configurations are erased so you need to re-enter any configurations such as port forwards or IP address changes you have made.
