configure the router because the language is chinese and i cannot get that.Or how to change the language?

I would recommend doing a 30/30/30 reset. Press and hold the reset button while it's plugged in for 30 seconds, then unplug it, continue holding the reset button for 30 seconds, then plug it in, continue holding the reset button for 30 seconds. Then I would power cycle it once more: unplug it, wait 30 seconds, then plug it in. If there is no reset button, I would contact the manufacturer on how to change the language setting.

reset my wireless router to factory

Hello Friend,
The first method involves using the reset button that is located at the back of the router. It isn’t hard to reset the router this way, but does require physically being in the same location as the router.
To reset the router using the reset button, use these steps:
  1. Look for the red reset button at the back of the router.
  2. Press and hold the reset button for approximately 5 seconds.
The second method involves logging into the administrative pages of your router. This can be done from anywhere that you can connect to your router. While not complex, there are a few more steps than using the reset button.
  • Log in to the router’s administrative pages.
  • Click the “Administration” menu option.
  • Next, click “Factory Defaults” from the sub-menu.
  • Click the “Restore All Settings” button on the screen.
I hope this Helped you..I like to know Feedback too.....Thanks for Contacting FixYa..

how do i reset my router

To hard reset the router:

- locate the factory reset button located on the back of the router, between the antenna and the ethernet jack
- with the power on, press and hold the button
- the power light should turn off, then after about 10 seconds, it should turn back on
- release the button and wait about 1 minute for the router to reset

You can also soft reset the router by logging into the administration panel and selecting "Erase" under the "Settings Backup" menu.
