Can anyone please help? Just before lockdown I bought a Vodacom LTE router (Huawei B315s-936). LTE works fine, but I cannot log into the router console (192.168.8.1). I have tried admin / admin, admin / vodacom, admin / password, admin / {WiFi key}...

Numerous calls to Huawei end with them telling to call Vodacom and Vodacom keeps telling me to talk to Huawei.

Did you hold down the button for 30 seconds and then restart it?

Make you to auto cap the first letter. If you are logging in and use Admin instead of admin.

I never owned a Vodacom branded router before but maybe Vodacom has added their own password in the firmware.

Thanks. Tried this as well with no luck. Does anyone have a connection at Vodacom that could help?

I know this is an obvious answer, but my B315 has the user name and password on a sticker on the bottom of the router.

its usually admin / admin

Worst case you can reflash the thing, although you need a male -> male cable, and need to open it up to short 2 pins.

I've been busy playing with making customized firmware for mine this last few days, as I've been bored.
Everything configurable is in an xml file, so updating isn't too bad, although need to I rebuild firmware, insert telnet for remote config, flash on my test device.

Nope! There is a wifi password, but no pass for access to router setup. And Noone in Vodacom can help. What a screw up!!!! I cannot use this router. Surely someone can help???????

If it was recently purchased from Vodacom, you could try taking it into one of the Vodacom repair centers and get them to figure it out.

I am having the exact same issue. My router was bought used, works fine. It is also a Vodacom B315. I have resetted many times, can't log in to the router. It is very frustrating.

Have you tried leaving the field blank, or try 12345.

Otherwise, phone them.
