    was able to choose between 2g or 3g network however now every time 3g

  7. I had purchased one Huawei Power -fi (E8221s-1). Before the new software update, I was able to choose between 2g or 3g network however now every time 3g network loses strength, it automatically changes to 2g network and since then i am unable to use 3g network. The earlier version had no such problem. To rectify this, I had sent you a mail earlier. You asked me to update software from your web site.
    Today morning, I have downloaded the updates from your web site- U8231_bharti & E8231_ohm. When I have installed “U8231_bharti” first time, it rolled back to earlier version & internet was coming but SMS was not going, USSD facility was not there. Then I have tried for “E8231_ohm”. It was giving error-“Error Code:12, Get device information failed!”.

    Now no signal is coming. It is showing- “No service”, “Not able to find the network. Please retry later or search for networks from the network settings page.”

    I have searched networks manually using different sim( Airtel & BSNL) but no result.

    I have made attempted restore defaults but no result.

    I have tried U8231_bharti again, it was showing-“Error Code:17, The wireless terminal inserted is not Firmware, Update Wizard can’t continue.” & “Code:12, Get device information failed!”

  8. Hello. I have a Vodafone R206. I’ve it unlocked but when I try to connecting with Movistar or Claro, only I can connecting with EDGE connection. I would like change the firmware of Vodafone and install the Huawei firmware. I was downloaded the Huawei firmware Huawei_E5220_21.143.99.05.00 but when I try to install the program require a password. I think that the password required is the Firmware password.

  9. Hi Please provide me any suggestion. what to do.

    i have an airtel e8231-s1 dongle. i am trying to flash it but it asks for password. have tried almost many password generated for my device. but nothing works. please help. in 192.168,8,1 page it shows enter unlocl code. 0 attempts left.

    i tried these password already. but nothing works:

    47878338

    This is my IMEI: 862869021582932

  10. Hi Kamlesh, My Device is E8231s-1
    can you please give the link for the latest firmware and webUI. One with both USSD and ‘3G only’ option.

        • “3G only” is there along with USSD? Are you sure? Please please, name the firmware version you mentioned above…Actually when I checked for the updates it did show ‘this version is up to date’ but the ‘3G only’ option is missing…So, I’m confused which latest firmware you said… 🙁

            • Device name:E8231IMEI:862869023932408IMSI :405050046464087Hardware version:CH1E8231SMSoftware version:22.618.11.02.910Web UI version:17.100.05.03.910LAN MAC address:84:DB:AC:CB:6F:7FWAN IP Address:100.89.64.162

              • Firstly don’t downgrade from this firmware. USSD and 3G Only option can be accessed from this. I shall explain how to do this.

                you cannot set 3G only through webui. However it can be done through the Huawei Hilink android app.

                That too, the 3G only option wont be available always. In the app by default it will be showing “Support 3G” however if you click WiFi-extender
                option in the network settings and turn it on, then immediately click
                back button(without further selecting WiFi connection for extending)
                then 3G only/2G only/Auto options will be shown just for one time. at
                that time select 3G only option. Then the device will be set to 3G
                only. If you come back again it will be showing “Support 3G OFF” but
                don’t change anything let it be. But still the device will be set on 3G
                only.

                If you have any doubt please feel free to contact me. Also
                let me know whether it worked or not. I have tried it 2 or 3 times and
                was successful each time. At first i too doubted how the 3G only option
                came. When i looked again it was “support 3G”. I did some trial and
                error and finally found this.Don’t downgrade the existing
                firmware ever. Once you do it you wont be able to get any further update
                as well as the wifi extender feature of this device

      • hi MR Madhusoodan. I already have the firmware 22.618.01.02.910 downloaded from Huawei website http://www.haweidevice.co.in. there in support–>downloads section. but this gave me 3gonly option but not the USSD option. this is same firmware which mr kamlesh has recommended in below comment. but no luck.
        I now don’t have USSD option, everything else is fine.
        actually it was stupid on my part to upgrade from my factory loaded firmware. the factory loaded firmware had both 3g only and ussd options. I now only miss that.so is everyone on this forum. I am following all the comments for many months so far but no solution.
        I e-mailed to Huawei india customer care support and talked over phone too but they said they has forwarded my complaint and there is no solution till date.
        I also contacted local Huawei outlet in delhi but its too far from here,besides I don’t expect from them much. I don’t think they could be having the stock firmware too..
        ony solution to this problem,which thousand other people are having right now beside me, is that someone who has just bought new Huawei e-8231 dongle,should get their factory/stock firmware(with which they sell it)extracted somehow and upload it at this forum so that others can make use of.
        by the way I have suffered so much to this upgrade that I am never gonna trust these people for their recommended retard updates!
        hope you got what I wanted to communicate.
        still if you think you have a solution for me,i will be oblised to exercise that and will be of great help.please e mail me at divakarkhidiya@gmail.com
        thank you.

        • Firmware version on my device is

          Firmware version:22.618.11.02.910
          WEBUI version:17.100.05.03.910
          As in your case I haved also updated from the factory version and couldnt find the 3G only option through webui. But now i have set the device to 3g only through the Huawei Hilink android app.
          Another advantage is that after the latest update the device also supports wifi extender. I can use the device as a wifi adapter for my desktop pc without even a sim card in it. Also it can extend the range of any other weak wifi signal. The update is worth.

          In short now i have 3G ONLY, USSD & WIFI EXTENDER.

    this problem a hardware/Software

  20. Hi kamlesh

    Ihave recently purchased Huawei wifi wingle E8231 from Amazon.I have
    done a firmware upadate from internet.Now,under Network Settings,the
    selection 3G only is missing and the wingle automatically selects 2g
    with good signal strength even if 3g is present with comparatively
    low signal strength.I am attaching herewith the current device info
    after update from webui:
    Devicename:E8231
    IMEI:862869024270840
    IMSI:404725151196858
    Hardwareversion:CH1E8231SM
    Softwareversion:22.618.11.02.910
    WebUI version:17.100.05.03.910
    Can I roll back to the original firmware
    version of the device?Pls. advice at the earliest.

        • don’t do it jayan!
          you will get the 3g only option but you will lose the much neede ussd option!
          besides you will never be able to upgrade if Huawei gives you any update in future! I have suffered that already!

        • hello hari,

          if your firmware and webui version are
          Firmware version:22.618.11.02.910
          WEBUI version:17.100.05.03.910

          then you cannot set 3G only through webui. However it can be done through the Huawei Hilink android app.

          That too, the 3G only option wont be available always. In the app by default it will be showing “Support 3G” however if you click WiFi-extender option in the network settings and turn it on, then immediately click back button(without further selecting WiFi connection for extending) then 3G only/2G only/Auto options will be shown just for one time. at that time select 3G only option. Then the device will be set to 3G only. If you come back again it will be showing “Support 3G OFF” but don’t change anything let it be. But still the device will be set on 3G only.

          If you have any doubt please feel free to contact me. Also let me know whether it worked or not. I have tried it 2 or 3 times and was successful each time. At first i too doubted how the 3G only option came. When i looked again it was “support 3G”. I did some trial and error and finally found this.

          Don’t downgrade the existing firmware ever. Once you do it you wont be able to get any further update as well as the wifi extender feature of this device.

          • Thanks for your kind support. I tried updating the dashboard firmware given on this website which is dated back to 2013 and worked like charm. Now I can make changes to the settings through Hi Link.
            Regards
            Hari

              • True but it’s always good to have better and stable speed than USSD with WiFi extender. Thanks anyway for your suggestions Jyothis

                • the connection is stable. only 3G is picked up. once you do it its done and no need to set each and every time. plus you get the added advantages of ussd and extender

          • Thanks. Its working. I can see the 3G only option after turn on the wifi extender. And i want know that can i see the option again after doing the same process.
            Thanks again.

  29. Hi Jyothis, I just bought the Huawei E8231 Wingle and unfortunately instead of updating firmware using the web ui I manually downloaded firmware from Huawei website. I think they have put up the old version of WebUI there so now I don’t have USSD and WiFi extender option. However I still do have 3g only. Now after updating the WebUI is no more showing that a new version is available. The current version I have are:

    Software version:22.618.01.02.910
    Web UI version:15.100.05.02.910

    I think the latest Web UI version is 17. Any idea where I can get this? I really need USSD option. The Huawei customer care isn’t of much help. They are claiming what I have is the latest and that USSD option is not supported 🙁

  30. Guys if some have zong 3g wingle e8231 device with original zong firmware & webui versions. Then share firmware & webui version information here . Please

      • Hi kamlesh sir,

        i had e8221 working then i updated the modem and faced frequent network disconnection and 2G network problem. So i downloaded firmware from official site http://www.huaweidevice.co.in/?q=downloads , two files were E8221_UPDATE_22.618.09.00.910 (SOFTWARE) and Update_WEBUI_15.100.09.00.910 (WEBUI). While updating the software it encountered ‘ERROR CODE:21, FAILED TO RESTORE USER INFORMATION”, webui update gone fine. Now i am not able to login to webui. My older login password doesnt work anymore. net is getting connected but i cant login. i tried ” admin admin” , ” admin admin123″, “admin1234”. Please help. All i need is the firmware which came with dongle, i updated and it ruined everything.

          • thank you dear, it really worked. Now one major problem is solved. I can select 3G only option. But now the USSD option has gone, any solution for that Sir?
