The IP address 192.168.8.1 is used to enter the WiFi settings and change the password on some Huawei modem and some computers that are used as ADSL and Hotspot connection type. The form of access is entering from the upper bar of typing of the navigator typing http://192.168.8.1/ and pressing ENTER. When you do that you will be presented with a page that will prompt you for a username and password.
The username for these computers is admin and the password is 1234. In some cases also admin is used as user and password or sometimes only asks for password being this admin. If you can not access these credentials, it is because some companies give you another password. In that case, you should call your Internet service provider to get the correct password or see if the username and password is sticked in the box, modem or any paper comes with the accessory.
Another solution to problems with accessing the modem is by resetting it in a hole in the back. Below image for an example:
Press the hole for several seconds and when the modem blinks all the lights stop pushing it. This will cause the modem to return to its default settings. The password and the name of the WiFi network will change to their default values equally and you will have to configure them again.
That username and password used to enter the modem are different from those used for the WiFi wireless network.
When you access 192.168.8.1 you will be presented with a page where you should go to the WiFi configuration. In which you will find the options to change the password and the name of your WiFi network.
- SSID Name is where you should put your Wi-Fi name. it can be your name or anything else.
- WPA PresharedKye is your password for Wi-Fi
For others, keep them same as in the image above.
If you can not enter with 192.168.8.1 test also with 192.168.1.1, 10.0.0.1 or 10.0.0.2
If it is a 2G, 3G or 4G modem the interface might look like the following:
Some modem brands that use this default gateway are the Huawei B3000, Huawei B660, Huawei B310, Huawei B68l-25, Huawei e5151 and Huawei B3l0s-22.
