I purchased a used Cisco 2811.  Now how do I force a reset on the device to return it to factory defaults?  I have the console cable but can not telnet to the device.

if you cannot get to where the above link tells you to go, try following this doc first.

Method 3:
router#write erase
  confirm
router#reload
  Save config? NO

It won't go all the way back to factory default, but will be a blank config and clean slate for you to start over with the initial configuration dialog, or skip it, whatever you want to do.
