Reset the Huawei HG8245H

First, make sure the router is on. Then take a straightened paperclip and press down on the reset button for a full 10 seconds. If you hold the reset button down for less than 10 seconds you only reboot the router instead of resetting it like you wanted.

Don't forget that this reset erases every single setting you have ever changed in the past. We strongly recommend trying other methods of troubleshooting before you continue.

Login to the Huawei HG8245H

Once you've successfully reset the Huawei HG8245H Orange router you should log into it. Do this by using the factory default username and password. We have these provided for your use in our Login Guide.

Tip: Defaults not logging you in? It could be because the reset button wasn't held down for long enough.

Change Your Password

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

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