How to Reset the Flying Voice G801

Have you tried to login to the Flying Voice G801 router and are unable to do so. You may need to reset the Flying Voice G801 router.

Due to the overuse of the word reset you may not know exactly what a reset is. Router manufacturers and guide writers tend to use this word to mean a factory restore and a reboot all at the same time. In this guide when I use the word reset I am only referring to a factory restore of all settings. I will also use the word reboot to mean a cycle in the power to the unit. A reboot does not change any settings.

Warning: A factory reset is a big step and should not be taken lightly. Some of the settings that will be changed when you reset the Flying Voice G801 router are:

Reset the Flying Voice G801

Do you know where the reset button is located on the outside of the Flying Voice G801 router? Below is an image of the back panel. I have circled the reset button in red for you.

With the Flying Voice G801 router turned on, take a straightened paperclip or pen and press down on the reset button for about 10 seconds. This begins the reset process. If you don't hold this reset button down for the entire amount of time you may end up rebooting the device instead of resetting it like you intended.

Don't forget that this reset is going to erase every single setting you have ever changed on the Flying Voice G801 router in the past. We strongly recommend trying other methods of troubleshooting before deciding a reset is your best option.
