How to set up your Telkom LTE Huawei B311B router

Steps to setting up your Telkom LTE Huawei B311B router

Router overview

Step 1: Attach the socket to the router

The socket helps to keep the router upright to improve its Wi-Fi signal reception.

Step 2: Make sure you insert the correct SIM card (nano-SIM)

Step 3: Insert the SIM card gently into the SIM card slot in the direction shown in the figure below until it clicks

Important to note:
  1. To remove the SIM card, gently press the SIM card in until it clicks. The card will automatically pop out.
  2. Do not insert or remove the SIM card when the router is running as this may affect performance or damage the SIM card. 

Step 4: Connect the power adapter to the router

The white indicators will turn on when the router has successfully connected to a network.

Important to note: If the network status indicator is red, it indicates there is no network connection.
Here's what you can try:
  1. Check if the SIM card is correctly inserted.
  2. If the issue persists, restore the router to factory settings and try again. To restore factory settings, press and hold the Reset button until the network status indicator starts to flash. Release the button and the router will restore to its factory settings.

Step 5: Connecting to your router's Wi-Fi network

Once the router has connected to a mobile data network, you can connect your computer or mobile phone to the router's Wi-Fi network to access the internet. Refer to the label on the back of the router for the default Wi-Fi network name (Wi-Fi Name) and password (Wi-Fi Password)

Important to note:
  1. When the Wi-Fi indicator is steady, Wi-Fi is enabled. To enable or disable Wi-Fi, refer to the router's web-based management page. (Refer to the label on the back of the router for the default IP address, password and so on.)
  2. Ensure that you promptly change the Wi-Fi network name and password on the web-based management page to prevent unauthorised access to your Wi-Fi network. Once you have changed the password, you will need to reconnect to the router's Wi-Fi network.
