How to Factory Reset a RedPort Optimizer

Follow the below steps to quickly and easily perform a factory reset to your RedPort Optimizer. This guide can be used for the following Optimizer models: wXa-122, wXa-203, wXa-213, and wXa-223.

If you are experiencing technical difficulties with your RedPort Optimizer or Halo Long Range Wi-Fi Extender Kit, the first troubleshooting step we recommend is to complete a factory reset. This  may also be helpful if you have not used your hardware for a season or two.

Please note, completing a reset to your Optimizer will return all settings to factory default. This includes any firewall rules and the network name and password.

Steps to Complete Factory Reset

  1. Locate the small reset button on the bottom or back of the Optimizer. On the wXa-122 model, the button is red and is on the bottom of the unit. On the wXa-203, wXa-213, and wXa-223 models, the button is on the back, beside the power port.
  2. Once you locate the button, you will need to the hold it down for at least 15 seconds with a pen or paperclip.  
  3. Once you release the button, the lights on the unit should flash for a few minutes. You will notice that the Optimizer's Wi-Fi network will disappear and reappear from your list of available networks. This could take up to 5 minutes. 
  4. When you notice that the Optimizer's network has reappeared, you can reconnect to it and log into the user interface at  At this point, the reset is complete.
