In this guide we will cover how to reset the Aolynk DR814 router to factory defaults. Resetting a router is different than rebooting it. When you reboot something you are cycling the power usually by turning it off and back on again. Resetting the router is almost as simply but has more consequences.

Warning: Resetting a router can cause unforeseen problems. Please consider the following before continuing.

  • The router's main username and password are reset.
  • If you use a DSL connection you need to re-enter the ISP username and password. If you are unsure of this information, call your ISP (Internet Service Provider)
  • Any configurations you have made need to be entered again. This could include anything from port forwards to IP address changes.

Use a VPN Instead

Have you considered using a VPN instead of forwarding a port? For most users, a VPN is a much simpler and more secure choice than forwarding a port.

We use and recommend NordVPN because not only is it the fastest VPN, it includes a new feature called Meshnet that makes forwarding a port no longer necessary for most applications. With NordVPN Meshnet, you can connect to your devices from anywhere in the world, completely secure, over a highly encrypted VPN tunnel.

When shopping for a VPN, make sure that they meet the following criteria:

  • Your VPN provider should have a no-logs policy. This means that they do not keep any logs of any kind.
  • Make sure that your VPN provider has lots of exit nodes all around the world.
  • Check that your VPN will not affect your speed.
  • Verify that your VPN provider uses WireGuard as the underlying protocol.
  • Many people prefer a VPN provider that is not based in the United States.

This is the list of requirements that we used when we were shopping around for a VPN provider. There are lots of free, shady VPN providers out there that we looked at and dismissed.

Based in Panama, using diskless servers, and with over 6,100 servers in 61 countries, we can safely say that NordVPN satisfies all of these requirements.

NordVPN is the fastest VPN!

Once you've set up your NordVPN account on multiple computers and enabled Meshnet, you can seamlessly access all of your devices as if they were on the same network. You don't even have to log in to your router. It's very simple.

Every time you click on one of our affiliate links, such as NordVPN, we get a little kickback for introducing you to the service. Think of us as your VPN wingman.

First of all make sure the router remains on during the reset process. If it gets turned off or unplugged it could cause permanent damage to the Aolynk DR814 router.
