On this page I am going to be showing you how to properly reset the Dlink DVA-G3810BN-TL router back to it's original factory default settings. It's important that you know this is not the same thing as a reboot. When I use the word reboot, I am referring to a cycle of the power to the unit. When I use the word reset, I am referring to a complete factory restore of all the settings that have ever been changed. This means every single setting you have changed is going to be erased and returned to how it was when you got it new from the store.

Warning: Resetting this router can cause all sorts of problems for you if you don't know what settings are going to be changed and what ones are not. We suggest making a list of all the settings you know you have changed in the past. Consider the following:

Reset the Dlink DVA-G3810BN-TL

The first step in resetting your device is to locate the reset button. I was unable to find an image of this particular router's reset button so here is a picture of a similar router's reset button.

This is the reset page from your Dlink router.

Once you have found the reset button you need to take a straightened paperclip and press down on this tiny button for about 10 seconds. All this needs to be done while the router is powered on. As a safety measure a lot of router's only reboot the device if you don't hold the reset button down for long enough.

Please remember this reset erases every single setting you have ever changed on this device. We recommend trying other options first in order to avoid this sort of loss.

Once you've successfully reset the Dlink DVA-G3810BN-TL router you'll want to log into it. Do this by using the default username and password provided for you in our Login Guide.

Tip: Defaults not logging you in? It might be because the reset button wasn't held down for long enough.

Change Your Password

Now that you've logged into your router we recommend setting a new password for it. Remember that this password will only protect your router settings, not your wireless network. All the same, a strong password is always a good idea. For help in setting one be sure to check out our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

Tip: Prevent yourself from losing your new password by writing it on a note and taping it to the underside of your router.
