Reset the Huawei B593

Below is an image of the back and side panel of the Huawei B593 router. On the side you will find the reset button/pinhole. I have circled the approximate location of the reset button for you.

Make sure the router is on. Then take a straightened paperclip or other similar object and press down on the reset button for more than 5 seconds. If you don't hold this button down for the entire 5 seconds you will end up only rebooting the device instead of resetting it like you wanted.

Remember a reset like this one erases every single setting you have ever changed in the router's interface. We highly recommend exhausting your other troubleshooting methods before you continue.

Login to the Huawei B593

Now that you've successfully reset the Huawei B593 router you'll want to log into it. This is done by using the factory default username and password provided for your use in our Login Guide.

Tip: Defaults not working for you? It may be because the reset button wasn't held down for long enough.

Change Your Password

Once you've reset and logged into your router we suggest setting a new password for it. This can be anything you like, however bear in mind that a strong password includes no personal information and is 14-20 characters in length. For more help be sure to take a look through our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

Tip: Avoid losing your new password by writing it on a sticky note and attaching it to the underside of your router.
