As you can see from the image below the reset button is on the back panel of the router. Can you locate the reset button on the router you are resetting?

This is the reset page from your Huawei router.

While the router is on, take a straightened paperclip and press down on the reset button for about 10 seconds. This starts the reset process. If you don't hold the reset button down for long enough you end up only rebooting the router instead of resetting it.

Don't forget this reset is erasing every single setting you have ever changed on your router. We strongly recommend trying other troubleshooting methods before you continue.

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.
