Hello, all...

This may sound wierd, but I want to completely reset my Mesh Router (New Name and differentiate between 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz on the Main Network as well as establish a guest network).  Rebuilding the Wifi is no problem, i have the instructions for this.

What I need help with is factory resetting the FingBox, and keeping my fingbox account.  Will FingBox monitor the 2.4 and 5 Ghz together?

Thanks,

William

    Hi @WHT - bearing in mind that fingbox is connected via ethernet it will monitor/detect all devices on the network it is connected to, including wifi devices connecting via your router.

    To reset the fingbox (& retain your account):-

    Reset Fingbox
    1. Unplug the Fingbox power adaptor from the wall outlet
    2. Find the RESET hole beside the Fingbox power port
    3. Gently insert a paperclip in the RESET hole (very gently)
    4. While keeping the RESET button gently pressed, plug the power adaptor back in
    5. Keep the RESET button pressed for 30 seconds and release (or until a single white light flashes on the device)
    6. You should now see a single white light on
    7. After a few seconds, the top circle will start flashing, while the original factory software is loaded
    8. This process lasts for a few minutes 
    9. A single white light will mark the end of the process
    10. Power off the Fingbox
    11. Wait 5 seconds
    12. Power it back on
