Hey everyone, I have the above Huawei modem from a previous naked broadband connection I had with Vodafone, yesterday I got connected to telecom broadband and am trying to use this modem, from previous threads and calling telecom I think I am right in saying It should be compatible.

I have tried using and pass as abc123 and it still doesn't work,
As I'm not that savvy was wondering if I'm entering it in the right place. So when I go to it comes up asking for UN and password, so I enter Vodafone Vodafone and it takes me to the router page,
On the left hand side there are lots of options and the one that seems most appropriate is setup wizard
When I click on that it gives me the option to enter Vodafone fixed line broadband UN and pass, I have put the above telecom details in and the save/reboot and still no connection

Anyyyyy help would be hugely appreciated x

Hi, Don't despair - I have the same modem working with telecom.  I thought the username and password that you've done should be enough, but I can't remember now.  There is a more advanced menu option on the modem, to try with some other settings, using username 'admin' and password 'VF-NZhg556' to login to .  try some of these settins on that DSL / WAN options on that menu:

Thanks so much for your help, I logged into the advanced settings and tried to do it that way but it's still not liking it, starting to think there might be something wrong with the router (or me ha ha)
