Step 1: Position your modem

Unbox your Huawei B618 4G modem and place it in an open area with access to a power outlet.

Avoid placing your modem behind books on a shelf, inside any metal cabinet, or under furniture.

Step 2: Plug in and power up

Plug in the black power adaptor into the back of your modem, connect the other end into a power outlet and turn it on.

Wait 30-60 seconds for the lights on your modem to come on.

Look for the three green signal strength lights on the front of your modem. When all three light up, you have the strongest signal.
