Resetting LAVA Ether-Serial Links to factory defaults
LAVA Ether-serial links can be easily reset to factory defaults using the following methods:

Software reset to factory defaults
----------------------------------
The LAVA Ether-Serial Link can be reset to factory defaults using the Ether-Link Manager application, provided the administrative password to the device is known. Resetting the device to factory defaults will remove all user-configured settings, including port and network settings, access restrictions, and passwords.

To reset the LAVA Ether-Serial Link using the Ether-Link Manager, right-click on the device icon in the "My Ether Link Network" side of the Manager, and from the pop-up menu that appears, choose "Reset device".

Hardware reset to factory defaults
----------------------------------
The hardware reset does the same thing as the software reset. It is useful when the password to the device is not known or the device is locked up and cannot be successfully restarted by cycling its power. As with the software method of factory reset, resetting the device to factory defaults using a hardware reset will remove all user-configured settings, including port and network settings, access restrictions, and passwords.

To reset the LAVA Ether-Serial Link using a hardware reset:

1) Disconnect power from the device.
2) Turn the device upside down and remove the four black screws that hold the enclosure shut.
3) Remove the lid of the enclosure.
4) On the main board of the device, locate the jumper marked "J15". Notes:
- 1) Do not use the jumper pair identified as "RST".
- 2) On the 1, 2, and 4 port LAVA Ether-Serial Links these jumper pairs are slightly separate and separately identified. On the 8 and 16 port LAVA Ether-Serial Links J15 and RST are located together but are separately identified.
5) Short the two pins of jumper pair J15 with either a jumper, a screwdriver, or other metallic conductor.
6) Leaving the pins shorted, power up the device. Allow 20 seconds for a full power-up cycle.
7) Disconnect power from the device.
8) Remove the jumper short.
9) Replace the enclosure lid and reinsert the four screws.
10) Power up the device. It will now be reset to factory defaults.
