How to Unlock Smart Bro Pocket WiFi – Smart Bro LTE Pocket WiFi FXPR3L
First, a little background story. I bought a Smart LTE pocket WiFi a couple of days ago. The latest model is an EVOLUZN FX PR3L. It was fast when I tested it in the shop, but when I took it home the signal was poor. I was not surprised since this happens a lot in the Barangays of the Philippines (I am in Puerto Princesa). Anyway, since it was not faulty, I can not return it. A friend of mine has a Globe Tatoo and while it is not super fast, at least it works. So I have unlocked my Smart FX PR3L pocket WiFi and put a Globe sim card in it. Now, whenever I travel in the Philippines I can use either globe or smart depending on who has the better signal.
Okay, so I got this information from a youtube video, but there were some little problems I came across. I noticed in the comments of the video there were some people having issues as well. So I have written this short guide to explain the process a bit better.
1. Ensure your Smart Pocket WiFi is at least 50% charged.
2. Put a non-Smart sim card into it.
I put a Globe one in, but any carrier will work.
3. Connect your device to the pocket WiFi
Do this via WiFi (not by cable). Any device will work, Android, PC, Mac, iPhone, Tablet, etc.
The default smart bro password is:
If that doesn’t work, it means someone has changed the password. You can learn how to reset the Smart bro pocket WiFi under the next heading.
4. Once connected, go to the smart bro WiFi admin page.
The smart bro pocket WiFi IP address is:
Put the above smart pocket WiFi IP address into the web browser of your device. The following page should appear.
If not, then you’re computer’s WiFi is not connected to the pocket WiFi. For example, mine was still connected to my home PLDT so it went to the PLDT admin page. In this case, connect to the pocket WiFi and go to smart bro dashboard login page again (192.168.1.1).
If you get an “error 404 not found” page, clear your browser’s cookies.
5. Sign in to the smartbro pocket WiFi dashboard.
The smart bro dashboard username and password is:
6. After you log in, navigate to “Internet” and then to “MEP Setting”
7. Type in the following code and then press “unlock”
In the above picture, I have already unlocked it, which is why it says “Lock” instead of “Unlock”.
Once you unlock your smart pocket WiFi it will reset to factory default settings. If you want you can change the password with the instructions below.
How to Reset the Smart Bro Pocket WiFi
You can do a smart bro pocket WiFi reset by pressing the buttons “ON” and “WPS” at the same time for 10 seconds. It will reset to factory default. Now you can use the default username and password to connect to it.
How to Change the Smart Bro Pocket WiFi Password
Log into the Smart bro pocket WiFi admin dashboard as explained above.
Go to Wireless > Wireless Security Settings
Tick “Unmask Password”
You can change your password and the Network Name (SSID) also if you want. Don’t touch anything else if you don’t know what you’re doing.
Once you press save the page will refresh.
You will also get logged off your Smart Pocket WiFi. You can log in again with your new password.
If anything goes wrong, remember that you can reset to factory default settings.
This does not change the smart bro pocket WiFi dashboard password.
