Login to the Huawei HG622u

Once the reset is complete you need to login using the factory default settings. These can easily be found on our Huawei HG622u Login Guide page.

Tip: If the defaults didn't work it might be because the router rebooted instead of reset like you wanted. Just try again but hold the reset button down for a few seconds longer.

Change Your Password

Immediately after the reset is complete you need to change the default password. Change your router's password by following the tips in our Choosing a Strong Password guide.
