In this guide we will cover how to reset the Articonet ACN-411RE router to factory defaults. This is not the same thing as rebooting the router. A reboot requires you to cycle the power by turning the device off and back on again. A reset is a little different. Resetting the router erases all your personal configurations and reverts them back to factory defaults.

Warning: Resetting your router is serious. Make sure you have exhausted other troubleshooting options before continuing. Consider the following:

  • The router username and password are reset to factory default.
  • The WiFi username and password are reset as well.
  • If you use a DSL connection you will need to re-enter the ISP (Internet Service Provider) username and password
  • Finally, everything you have changed to make this router yours will be erased. This could include any port forwards you created or maybe just an IP Address change

Change Your Password

After you have finished logging into the router you should always change that password to something new. It really doesn't matter what you enter here but if you are having trouble check out this Choosing a Strong Password guide for assistance.

Tip: You can write this new password down on a piece of paper and attach it to the bottom of your router for the next time you need to login.

Setup WiFi on the Articonet ACN-411RE

The final setting we recommend changing is the WiFi settings. The security has been reset along with everything else. Sometimes a router company leaves the router security open as the default. Change this to WPA2-PSK for the best form of security. For further assistance with this check out our How to Setup WiFi on the Articonet ACN-411RE guide.
