After turning on the 4g router, you need to configure Huawei to activate the device. The most important steps to follow immediately after the initial activation:
- Make sure that the connecting cable is connected and the button indicating the presence of power (POWER) is lit.
- Launch the browser on your computer and type an uncomplicated set of numbers into the address bar: https://192.168.100.1, by going to this link.
- You will see a page where you have to enter your login and password. The default login is Root and the password is Admin. This is what you have to enter.
- After entering all this, click on the Login button and go to the router’s web page.

As an alternative to the Promsvyaz MT-PON-AT4 Beltelecom sometimes gives subscribers a router (modem) Huawei HG8245H-256M. On the router itself for some reason is written HG8245H without 256H. This router is quite modern and even supports Wi-Fi 300 Mbps, but unfortunately only the standard 802.11N for 2.4 GHz. But there is a gigabit wired network for those who want to pump out your Internet to the fullest. By the way, the router is quite powerful, but in the future it would make sense to put something AC standard. Let’s proceed to the configuration of HG8245H-256M.
For those who do not want to spend their valuable time studying this manual we offer our paid help.
Preparing to configure the Wi-Fi on HG8245H-256M
Plug the cable from the computer’s NIC into 1-3 ports of the router. The 4th port can not be used for the Internet, because IPTV is connected to it. To begin with, I will say that the Internet on the computer works through a cable at once. If it doesn’t work you need to call the toll free number 123 and ask beltelecom tech support to set up PPPoE on it. Next, try to access the Web interface of the router: http://192.168.100.1, or type the IP address into your browser:
To log in to the Huawei HG8245H-256M router, enter the user name root and password admin and click Login. You can also log in with the following username: telecomadmin and password admintelecom, which will show you more settings.
If the page opened, go to configuring the Wi-Fi on HG8245H-256M. If you have a DHCP client that does not work in Windows or has no DHCP server enabled in your router you must set the IP address of your NIC manually. If the Internet works, but is slow, we recommend you try to turn off TCP/IP v6
Configure the network card in Windows 7
Right click on the computer icon in the system tray (bottom right corner of your Windows desktop)
In Windows 7 you need to enter the Network and Sharing Center
Select the network interface, which looks at the router (to which the modem is connected). If there is more than one, configure them all: If you only use ByFly on your computer it will be fine if you configure addresses on all ports.
You may click on the info button to see if the “default gateway” is set to an IP from a different subnet. (This happens if your router has been used before) Example:
Then you would have to connect to the default gateway.
If nothing worked, probably DHCP client “died” in your operating system. By pressing properties button in window “Network Connection Status” let’s set static IP:
By the way, I advise you, if you have the Internet lags uncheck the box “Internet Protocol version 6 TCP/IP v6”, it sometimes helps.
Fill in the IP addresses on the computer according to the table.

The “IP address” field is unique for each computer on your network. Do not configure adjacent PCs and phones with the same address. Make it e.g. 192.168.100.253, 192.168.100.252.
If after that nothing works, you are left to try to change the router from Beltelecom or call us.
Setting up Wi-Fi on your router.
HG8245H-256M setup starts with entering the WLAN/WLAN Basic Configuration tab.
Authentication Mode: the method of authentication is better to choose the most modern for home networks, as of today. WPA2 PreSharedKey.
WPA PreSharedKey: Here you must enter your Wi-Fi password. If you care about confidentiality of data transmitted through the network and avoiding theft of your traffic, then when choosing a password it is recommended that it meets the following requirements:
- Symbols and letters in upper and lower case
- The password must contain numbers
- Do not use words in the key, as the password to your network can be picked by a dictionary bruteforce attack.
- It is undesirable to use words with added symbols and letters, as it is possible to perform a hybrid dictionary attack.
Configuring Huawei HG8245H-256M for maximum performance
If you have a data rate higher than 25Mbps, it makes sense to increase Wi-Fi performance. Let’s go to the tab WLAN Advanced Configuration
Set the Channel Width to Auto 20/40 MHz, which will give you double the performance in a low-noise Wi-Fi network in your home. If you have a hotspot in a dense urban area, 20MHz channel width may give you more network stability.
For maximum performance, the Mode can be set to 802.11n, but laptops before 2009 most likely won’t be able to connect to such a network. However, there are few such devices in 2018.
Choice of Channel 13 can also increase performance, since some routers do not support channel 12-13 since they are not adapted to work in our region. But keep in mind that American and many other client devices will not be able to connect to this network
Connecting to Wi-Fi without setting up a router
You can also connect to a Wi-Fi network with this router without any settings. You first need to remove the frame with the optical cable attached to it. Then you will see 3 stickers on one of which you will find the network name and its key.
To do this you need to find the sticker with the SSID and WLAN Key on the device.
P.S. Also, if you have not disabled WPS, you can connect to the network by pressing this button on the router while connected.
If your laptop does not see a Wi-Fi network, read these instructions. If you can not configure the router yourself can also call a specialist at home.
You can also watch a video on how to open the port for incoming connections to your server. True, in 2018, it makes sense only if you have a static IP. Dynamic address is not suitable because Beltelecom does not give out IP routed to routers on the Internet for a long time. Most of us are now sitting on the Internet behind a dual NAT.

How to login to 192.168.8.1
D-Link Dir-320 Modem Review and Configuration Instructions on how to get into Huawei router settings include steps from physically connecting the two gadgets to changing the default conditions in 192.168.8.1 admin: password, login, Wi-Fi, network name.
Connecting to a desktop computer, notebook or phone
In Huawei 4G modem configuration depends on the selected as the “base” equipment: PC, laptop or smartphone, each of them has its own scheme.
- connect the LAN wire into the input jack of the “Huawei” modem;
- Connect your computer or laptop with a LAN cable to the router;
- Or insert the modem directly into the USB port.
Notice the following! Your computer may detect your modem as a disk or flash drive.
Connection through the phone, tablet via Wi-Fi, it is necessary:
Make sure that mobile Wi-Fi is enabled in the “Settings” menu or open the curtain by clicking on the appropriate icon.
Connect to the Personal profile at 192.168.8.1
Additional information! It is recommended to use a web browser that is rarely opened. It has no additional add-ons that will interfere with the modem installation.
Error when logging into the web interface
A common error that occurs when logging in to this address is the spelling of the characters. There can be letters instead of digits, extra space or wrong digit. Enter admin as login and password.
This password is a factory password, so you can change it later. To avoid hacking and after resetting with the Reset button for some reason, you will need to come up with a new password. Number of characters must be at least six, be sure to use Latin letters.
Authorization in the router’s personal cabinet
Type of personal cabinet page depends on the type, model or mobile operator. However, most routers have a single shell, including with mobile WI-FI login as on PC. WI-FI modem has an additional security function with obligatory entry of login and password when trying to enter any item.
Changing the settings
After logging into the router “Huawei” the connection type is set in more detail, depending on the status of the IP-address, dynamic or static.
- Check the “WAN connection” box.
- Prescribe the VPI/VCI values, which are assigned to the service in the region by the provider. As a rule, VPI is 0 for Internet, 2 for cable TV. The information is listed in the contract or on the official website, forum.
- Specify connection type as “PPPoE.
- Enter login and password.
- Press Submit button to save your profile.
Dynamic IP is set the same way on some types of modems and differs in only three variables:
- Select IPoE in the Connection type line.
- Select “DHCP” from the list in the Address Type line.
- Activate NAT, if given the choice, then write NAPT.
The next step is to configure WI-FI network via the WLAN tab:
Additional info! The router has several WI-FI profiles. The number depends on the firmware, and the last networks on the list will be considered guest networks.
Fill in the SSID field with the name of a new network. The name is then displayed on all devices.
Note! Password up to 12 characters with different types of characters and case will give additional security against unauthorized intrusion: no one will be able to enter.
Troubleshooting OS failure
What are the differences between 3G and 4G networks: features, advantages and disadvantages
Sometimes why the phone does not give Wi-Fi to the laptop is due to the fact that there are general problems in the operating system. Such situation is possible if, for example, a virus has infected the system programs and they cannot operate normally.
Important! In some cases the antivirus program is able to fix the consequences of its destructive effects, but this is not the case in all cases. In order to eliminate them, you should perform the following actions:
To eliminate them, you need to perform the following actions:
- Reset the operating system to factory defaults. Before you do this you need to reset all the necessary information to other media.
- If regularly performed the procedure of synchronization with Google, then you can not worry about it. the data are perfectly safe. However, you should take care of the safety of your documents, videos and other information by yourself.
Updating the OS to the latest version can help:
- In the settings you need to go to the section “Archiving and resetting”. To perform this procedure, you need to follow the prompts on the screen.
- Then go to options and start updating the system.
After that, access to the World Wide Web should work at the same speed. If this does not happen, you need to update the firmware on your smartphone. Although you can do it yourself, but it is recommended to use the help of professionals. Such procedure is available not only on “Android”, but also on “iPhone.
However, this option has significant disadvantages:
It is possible to perform distribution using Bluetooth. Why do this depends on the availability of appropriate devices. To enable this option in the wireless settings (Additional Functions) find the line “Bluetooth modem” and activate this feature. Only devices that have the right adapter can access such a network.
Establishing communication with the router
The first thing to do with the router is to establish a physical connection. In the case of wireless devices this can be done in two ways. by connecting to its Wi-Fi network or via a network cable. Routers that do not support Wi-Fi are only set up over a wired connection.
To access the router settings wirelessly, you will need a Wi-Fi network password (if this is the first time you have set up the router, the Wi-Fi network will most likely be open, i.e.е. not password-protected). If there are no problems with that, we can move on to the next part of the article. If there is no password, there are two ways out:
- Connect to the router using a network cable and a computer. To do this you must have access to the equipment, t.е. It must not be located in an enclosed space. The cable must be plugged into one of the LAN (not to be confused with WAN) ports of the router.
- Perform. In this case not only the password will be reset, but also all the settings of the network device. After that the router will have to be reconfigured to be able to provide Internet access.
Once the connection to the router is successfully established, proceed to the next step.
One end of the patch cord plug into the LAN port of the first router where we have internet, and the other end of the cable plug into the WAN port of the second router. As I mentioned before, the first one only needs to have DHCP enabled, and the second one needs to make sure that auto-acquisition IP is specified in the settings.
Open any browser and go to 192.168.1.1, or 192.168.0.1. It depends on the router model. The address to enter the settings is on the bottom of the router. You will be asked for a username and password.
