Huawei mobile wifi E5577 - can't access, password difficulty

I had problems with my 4g reception (it turned out the transmitter I was using was switched off). Not realising why I had a problem I tried several times to get round the loss of signal. Eventually I did a 'hard reset' on the E5577.
When I then logged in again, I was asked the login details. Inside the Huawei lid it says 'admin' 'admin' as the login and password. So I entered them. BUT I was then told that the password was not strong enough, I was prompted to make another. I did this. Since then I have been locked out.... neither password is accepted. Any ideas what I could do?

I suggest.....

....that you contact the manufacturer for assistance.

Back to

Maker or seller on this one. Strange that a reset bricked the device. Not a good show and another reason why this make is in trouble. You may want to call this a product defect and your reason to get a full refund to buy something else.

I thought this company was blocked now in the USA?

The network gear.

Not so much the phones. But you do see this issue with that make and support seems to be non-existent and getting worse.

If they were in England the goods and services act would be used to force the seller to make good.
