How do I fully reset /reboot an original Fing?

Bought mine on original kickstart. Need it to fully work and it has never seemed to get there. I want to update firmware if necessary and reboot, then reintegrate Fing with newer ISP?

    Hi @K7EDA , to get the firmware just unplug it for 10 seconds and plug it back in.
    To restart it best bet is to deactivate it and reactivate it.  This is done via the app...
    • Locate the network name in the middle of the top bar of the screen – click on the drop-down arrow next to this.
    • This will take you through to the My Networks screen which contains a list of all your networks.
    • Swipe left on the Network with the Fingbox on it and click on the Deactivate that appears. This will remove the network you have already configured, freeing up Fingbox to be assigned to a new network.
    • After you have deactivated the Fingbox, you will be able to connect the box to the new network you’d like it to be on.
