    Is there a way to reset the Admin password for the Huawei E5830? Somehow I lost track of it and now I can't configure the MiFi. Any inputs would highly be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Hi! If I remember clearly what the manual said, you may have to press the on/off button and Wi-Fi button simultaneously to reset all the settings. The password will revert back to default which is: password.

    Hope this helps.

    @insane_kiddo
    I think its the WIFI/WPS button. You have to press it for about 5 seconds to reset the settings. Tried this but to no avail..

    @ruprup
    Yes 'admin' WAS the default password. I already changed it so obviously it won't work anymore.

    @jlaloon
    Didn't find any reset button at the back of the modem.


    Thanks anyway for all your inputs!

    Hi dbltzr, you'll have to press both the power and Wi-Fi button to reset everything.

    It should work as I've tried it on mine.
