You can now become a walking wifi hotspot with the new sun cellular’s mifi by Huawei. The Sunbroadband pocket wifi can be used right after you install the application software but you wouldn’t want everyone to be able to connect to it. Here’s the step by step guide on how to install your Huawei E5 wireless modem.
Connect your E5 via USB and install application, after the installation you should be able to see the following screen
Go to Tools > Options
Setup APN to fbband
Click OK and Connect using Sun Broadband Standard.
Open your browser and go to http://192.168.1.1/
Login as: admin
Default Password: admin
You will be redirected to your control panel. You can setup using the Quick Setup wizard but this did not work for me so I did use the Advance settings. Try the quick setup first if you want.
On the Advance settings Tab go to System > Modify Password
On the Current password enter “admin”, input and confirm your new password then click modify.
The setting will be updated and when you login to your administration panel, use the current password. This is important because if you don’t change your password anyone who knows what they are doing can login to your control panel and mess around with your settings.
Next, Go to Advanced Settings > Dial-up Settings > Profile Setting
Select Sun Broadband Standard as default and Save
From the Connection Settings (Advanced Settings > Dial-up Settings > Connection Setting) see to it that the selected profile list is Sun Broadband Standard
Click Apply and wait for 3 seconds then refresh.
Go to WLAN Settings then Enable WLAN if it’s not yet enabled. Click WLAN Basic Settings
On the Basic Settings Tab set your SSID name (Anything you like)
Then Apply. You will be disconnected because you changed your SSID. Refresh wireless connections and connect to your new Name(SSID). You will be able to connect without a password yet. You can setup the passkey using the next step.
Go to WLAN Advanced Settings and set your encryption passkey. This passkey will be asked when someone tries to connect to your wifi. I used the following authentication.
After this Click apply and then you’re done.
