How to Reset the Huawei E5577s

Warning: A reset like this one is a big step. Things you may not of considered are:

Reset the Huawei E5577s

Looking at the image below you can see that the reset button for the Huawei E5577s router is located on the underside of the router.

The reset should be complete now. If you didn't hold the button down for long enough there is a chance you only reboot the router instead of resetting it.

Don't forget that this reset is erasing everything you have ever changed on the router. Try other troubleshooting options before you decide to reset.

Login to the Huawei E5577s

Following that you'll need to log into your Huawei E5577s router. This is done by using the factory default username and password. Not sure where you can find these? We have them listed for your use in our Login Guide.

Tip: If the defaults aren't logging you in it might be because the reset button wasn't held down for long enough.

Change Your Password

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

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