updating and unlocking

To unlock the Huawei D100/D100T follow these instructions:
  1. Download an update from above and extract it to your computer:
  2. Before flashing make sure your computer and the Huawei D100 won't lose power during the process as it could potentially brick your Huawei D100!
  3. Power on the Huawei D100 and connect it to computer through an Ethernet cable
  4. Launch FmcUpdate.exe from the extracted files
  5. Click the "Check" button to detect your Huawei D100 and shift it to update mode
  6. Click the "Upgrade" button to start the update
  7. Wait a couple minutes until the whole progress is accomplished
  8. After upgrade, disconnect the Ethernet cable and push the reset button of the Huawei D100 (in the lower right corner of the backside) or restore factory defaults in the webinterface (open in your browser and enter "admin" as default password, then go to Advanced Settings | System | Restore Defaults | Restore).
    note: If you do not restore to factory defaults after the update, your USB modem won't be detected properly and the "Connection" page will say "The USB Modem is nonexistent"
  9. Connect your USB modem to the Huawei D100 port only when it's switched off!
  10. Turn-on the router and go to the GUI by opening in your browser and enter "admin" as password.
  11. To activate an access profile for your network operator, go to Advanced Settings | Dial Up Settings | Profile Settings and chose your provider from the Profile List. If your provider's settings are not included, just create a new profile by entering a Profile Name and all the other information required below and click on Save.
  12. Afterwards go to Advanced Settings | Dial Up Settings | PPP Settings and make sure the correct profile is chosen in the Profile List. If not, chose the correct one and hit Apply.
  13. Now your router is ready to share your broadband (remember that your USB modem must also be unlocked!).
  14. You might want to enable (really) secure WiFi-encryption under Advanced Settings | WLAN Settings | WLAN Advance Settings where you should set WPA-PSK|WPA2-PSK as Encryption Mode and TKIP+AES as WPA Encryption. Lastly enter the WPA Pre-Shared Key, which should be not too easy to guess and hit Apply.

Anonymous Do you think it wil connect a wireless printer? 2 Jan 9 2014, 1:36 AM EST by rowly12
Thread started: Jan 26 2010, 12:43 AM EST  Watch
I bought an unlocked T-Mobile Share Dock 100 (the same as the Huawei D100 pictured at the top of this page) on eBay (UK) from a lady who obviously has a supply as she sells quite a few (I paid about £28). I followed the instructions on her listing page, and then changed the dial setting, after a few attempts all worked fine. I can now use my laptop wirelessly, and connect my iPod touch by wi-fi (great for walking about my appartment and using Skype app through my iPod).
Last week I bought a printer/scanner - HP F4580 - with wireless connectivity. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to link this to the Huawei router?

pgrew FMC Update of Huawei D100 fails with "Detect none router" 1 Mar 14 2012, 11:21 AM EDT by sadig41
Thread started: Aug 26 2011, 11:30 AM EDT  Watch
Sorry for refreshing this old issue, but I can't manage to update via the FMC Update tool still after reading all the other threads about it:
I have: tried several FMC tool versions, set my PCs IP to DHCP or something in the 192.168.1-range and reset the router to the, but still get the message "Detect none router": pushing the "Check"-button for minutes...
Any ideas?
With another D100 I could manage to use the built-in web frontend for upgrade, but this other box says "Parse error" and something about wrong file name (most probably this router only accepts o2-branded firmware via the web GUI).
In case someone can tell me what I do wrong with the FMC Update tool, please help :-)
