Resetting the engenius eoc 8610ext

I google "resetting the 8610" and keep getting information that doesnt work. im using windows xp service pack 2. im using the eoc 8610 ext. it wont let me into it, when i try to ip into it. i think my fellow soldier friend went inside of it and change the ip address of the unit. i google this, and came up with procedures that dont work. do anybody know the correct way to reset this unit to the factory setting if it can be done. i did purchase the cable that i read you was suppose to have. the problem is: when i hyperlink into the unit. i get to the point after you set up all the setting it wont do anything or say anything after you type in flash reset.

confused in iraq.

    same issue and I have tried this on two different radios, one that I CAN log into (so I know it works) and one that I am unsure about. Neither radio gives me anything in HyperT. :-(

I have reset lots of these using the manufacturer's instructions.
Plug in the serial cable before powering on the unit. When you power on the unit, you should be able to see a log of what the unit is doing. If you can't, then your parity, bits, speed, etc. in Hyperterminal are set wrong.
When the unit stops logging (usually with a #), type in
flash reset (and hit the return key)
You should see a bunch more logging, indicating that the unit is shutting down and rebooting. After that, you should be able to log into the unit at with admin/admin or admin/(blank).

I want to reset using RS323 port , i forgot its ip adress


You can reset the device through RS232 port then please follow the below steps.

You need a laptop with Console port and a console cable for EOC-8610 EXT, You really dont need the IP address if you want to do it via console (RS232) interface.

1. Connect the console cable one end to EOC-8610 EXT RS232 port and other end to Laptop serial port.
2. Open Hyper terminal and select com-port option and then provide the username and password for the device management.
3. Go inside the system menu and select Reset Factory default.

Remember if u set to load the factory default settings, the device will loose its config and will boot up with factory default configuration.

When you push the reset button, you reset the network configuration to factory default. Now you have to reconfigure the unit to re-establish the network routing and addressing for your home network, the same way you configured it when you first got it. Its default address is either or, depending on whether it was in bridge or AP mode when you reset it.
