Reset the Huawei HG655b

I have an image of the back panel of the Huawei HG655b router below. As you can see I have pointed out the reset button for you.

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. If this isn't held down for the entire amount of time you end up only rebooting the router instead of resetting it like you wanted.

Remember a reset like this one is going to erase every single setting you have ever changed. We recommend trying other troubleshooting methods before you continue.

Login to the Huawei HG655b

You can now login to the Huawei HG655b router. You need to use the default values. We have these for you in our Huawei HG655b Login Guide.

Tip: Don't panic if the defaults didn't work. It is possible the reset button wasn't held down long enough.

Change Your Password

Next you need to create a new password for your router. This password is protecting your router settings. If you need help with this check out our Choosing a Strong Password guide.

Tip: One way to avoid losing this new password is to write it down on a piece of paper and attach it to the bottom of the router.
