Most Common ZTE Routers in South Africa
We have already noted that there are some ZTE router models that are very common in South Africa. Below are a few of them. If you have any in use in your home or office, you will find the default admin login username and password in our table. Note that most of these devices are 4G LTE Mifi routers.
My ZTE Router is not on the list
ZTE has a wide range of router models. It would be difficult to exhaust them all. In this post, we have tried to cover as much ground as possible. We gave as much of the default ZTE router password and username details as we could.
Our focus here was on ZTE routers that are common in South Africa. These are the routers that you are either provided by your network or that you can buy from such places as Loot or Takealot. But you may find that the device that you have is not on our list.
What should you do in that case? The good news is that this article was meant to be a guideline. You can see that there is nothing complicated about the information provided here. If you know the ZTE router password on one device, it will probably work on another.
We have already noted that admin is commonly the default username and password for ZTE routers in South Africa. So, it doesn’t matter what model you may have.
The first username and password that you should try is admin. If that does not work, try password for the password section. Or try any of the other combinations given in our table.
The ZTE Router password provided here does not work
That’s another situation that you may encounter. In the first scenario, we noted that you could end up not finding your ZTE router model on our list. But it could also happen that the router model is there, but the information provided does not work.
That usually happens if you have already changed the default ZTE router password. People do that to secure their networks. Defaults are not known, and it’s wise to choose something unique. Otherwise you could end up being locked out of your own WiFi by your own neighbors or even worse.
Anyway, we have come across many people saying; I forgot my ZTE router password. It’s easy to forget the router password because, unlike the WiFi password, most people never get to use this. So, what do you do if such forgetfulness hits you.
Find the correct default ZTE router password on the router label
One solution for this is to confirm that the ZTE router password given here is correct. You will notice that there may be differences, even for routers bearing the same model number.
But where can you find the correct details? Well, the correct default ZTE router login details can be found on the router label. All routers come with these labels.
Check under the device. You will see that there is a lot of information on there. There is the default login username and password for your ZTE router. There is also the default IP. Sometimes, you will also get the default WiFi password.
Reset your router
Another solution to this issue involves resetting your router. You can check out our article on the finer details of doing so. But it’s a simple matter of finding the reset button and pressing on it till your router has reset itself. Form there, you can get in with the defaults as given on the router label.
In this article, we gave you the default passwords and usernames for ZTE routers. We noted that these routers are common in South Africa. Our post was directed at a South African audience, but the information provided should be useful to anyone around the work.
