I just bought a Huawei E5 2 Degrees Pocket Wifi device.

There is no manual, just a brief quick start guide. I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to disable the "saving power mode".

After 5 minutes, all the indicator lights go out and stay out, even while I am on the net. I want them to stay on at all times.

Hi IlDuce

You should see the info on the virtual Help & Support CD ROM when you plug it into a device.

Anyway, here's how to disable the Power Saving mode -

1) Log into router by going to

2) Default password is admin

3) Select ‘Advanced Settings’

4) Select WLAN Settings

5) Select WLAN Basic Settings

6) Change Wifi Auto Off to ‘Disabled’

7) Select ‘Advanced Settings’ again

8) Select ‘Dial-up Settings’

9) Select ‘Connection Settings’

10) For ‘Connection’ change to ‘Auto’

That should do it.

2DegreesCare: You should see the info on the virtual Help & Support CD ROM when you plug it into a device.

Is that the F1 help in the mobile broadband watcher? If not how do I get it to come up, as when I explore the "CD" I don't see any help, just setup or reset device. That help shows things either I can't find, or aare not present in the "watcher", such as any statistics about speed or data usage.

I had found the page, but WLAN Basic Settings was dimmed out as I had turned WLAN off (as I'm using via USB).

So I followed those steps precisely and no change. If I push a button the LEDs "wake up" for 15 seconds then go out again... please note although they are out, the device is still connected to the net.

OK, so you're talking about the lights that go off after 5 mins, that cannot be changed. You're still be connected but you're unable to have them switched on permanently.
