Why are these settings important?
APN stands for Access Point Name. That’s the gateway that’s used by your MTN router to access to the internet. So, these settings are very important.
Most people start looking for the MTN APN settings for their ZTE routers when they have problems getting connected. In most instances, you don’t need to take this step.
What happens is that when you insert your MTN SIM, you automatically receive all the requisite settings on your phone. So, there is usually no need for you to get into your router’s admin section.
But you may have reset your router. Or maybe the automatic process failed. If you reset your ZTE, you may have lost all the settings. That’s for those who got their routers from ZTE. If you did that, then the device had all the settings.
Those are the MTN APN settings on ZTE routers. Hopefully, you found this information useful. Please know that the settings described here may be different.
Remember, there are many ZTE routers out there. Many more are being launched every now and again. So, how to log into your router may not be the same in all cases.
