How do I restore factory settings?
When the router is turned on, press the Reset button for approximately 3 seconds using a pointed object until the ambient light strip starts to blink. Restoring factory settings will restore the settings to the default. You can reconfigure them after the router is restored.
What should I do if I forgot the Wi-Fi password or the login password for the web-based management page?
Restore the router to its factory settings and then use the default Wi-Fi password and login password to try again.
What should I do if the 5G signal indicator and 4G signal indicator are off or an Internet connection cannot be established?

- If you are using a new SIM card, check if it has been activated.
What should I do if the Internet speed is slow?
- Check the 5G signal indicator and 4G signal indicator on the router. If both of them are red, adjust the router's direction or move it close to a window to improve signal reception. You can use the ‘Find Optimal Location’ tool on the Huawei AI Life app to assist with this.
- If your device is connected to the router over Wi-Fi, adjust your device's position to receive better signal.

Why is the content displayed on the web-based management page not up to date?
Depending on your browser's cache, the content for your device on the web-based management page may not be up to date. Manually clear your browser's cache (for example, open your browser and choose Internet Options > General > Browsing history > Delete.) and re-launch the web-based management page.
My Dell laptop is unable to find WiFi SSID
There are two potential reasons why this may be happening:
- The Intel wireless network adapter is incompatible with the 802.11ax. It is recommended that the Intel wireless network adapter driver be upgraded to the latest version. You can connect the CPE to the wireless network adapter through a network cable to update the wireless network adapter driver. Click here for more info.
- Connect the mobile phone or PC to the CPE. On the advanced configuration page of the WebUI, 192.168.8.1 and go to advance set the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi mode to b/g/n and the 5 GHz Wi-Fi mode to a/n/ac. Such configuration will cause Wi-Fi performance deterioration. You are advised to use solution 1 to rectify the fault and then roll back solution 2.
How do I update my Router to accept a Static IP address?
In doing this, you must have already requested a Static IP address for your Broadband Line (This is only currently offered to Business Customers). Once you know your Static IP address, please follow the instructions below to update the router to work over this static IP.
- Connect your computer to the router's Wi-Fi network (or connect the computer to the router's LAN port using an Ethernet cable).
- Open your Internet browser.
- Enter 192.168.118.1 in your browser address bar and log in to your router's web-based management page.
- Go to Advanced > Router > DHCP. Take note of your DNS server setting in case the change of setting needs you to re-write these later > and then toggle DCHP Off and fill in the IP address. Click Save.
