Reset the Huawei E5372_-_Zain

Unfortunately we don't have an image to show you of the reset button. It can be located anywhere on the device. It typically looks more like a small pinhole than an actual button.

Once you have found the reset "button" the first step is to make sure the router is on. Then take a straightened paperclip and press down on the button/pinhole for about 10 seconds. If you don't hold the reset button down for long enough you might end up only rebooting the router instead of resetting it like you intended.

Warning: Do not unplug or turn off the router during this process. Doing so could cause permanent damage to the device.

Don't forget that this reset is going to erase every single setting you have ever changed in the past. Please exhaust your other troubleshooting methods before you decide to reset.
