Good day Geeks


Can anyone direct me to where I find the system time (setting?) for a Vodafone NZ Huawei HG659.   Not for the first time I'm having trouble understanding the parental control on this thing, whereby recently the kids all happily carry on online for a good hour after the cut off..  I'm suspecting the device doesn't know about NZ daylight saving perhaps......?

Double check if the time setting option is enabled or not, it might be hiden.




on our ones we bind it to our ntp servers, I'd assume vodafone do much the same...

Gonna be honest I didn't even realize the HG659 had parental controls at all so I've got no idea sorry. 😬

I found this, might help -


Once the firmware is updated to V100R001C216B113 version please follow the instructions below.




Click Internet -> Internet Services -> Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP)



Select the correct timezone and click enable Daylight saving time to configure DST.

Latest Vodafone firmware is V100R001C206B026




Also SNTP support won't work unless the device is operating as your gateway
