That's an easy one - download & read the Quickstart Guide

 

Page 11 explains the reset process:


Reset your Pocket WiFiTM

To reset to the default settings, turn on the Pocket WiFiTM, remove the back cover without dislodging the battery, use a pin and press and hold the ‘Reset’ button for 5 seconds.

The ‘Reset’ button can be found next to the power key.

The Pocket WiFiTM will automatically switch off and turn back on. Once it’s back on all personal configuration settings are deleted and all web-based management settings and parameters are restored to their default values.

Hi andry,

 

Peter is correct, you will need to reset your device, as explained on page 11 of the Quickstart Guide to fix this. Many thanks to Peter for helping with this one. Smiley Happy

 

Cheers,

Nige.

Hey Peter, 

 

Thanks for the advice, but i want to change settings, yet i dont have an admin password. I've tried my vodafone password and i still get the info box saying wrong password, is there any way i would be able to set up an admin password at all?

 

Much obliged

OK - as the password is case-sensitive, make sure you type (capital A) 'Admin'.  I initially overlooked the capital A and got a 'wrong password' box too.

 

That should give you access to settings.
