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 (

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.

    Will it be working if used abroad? I mean sim card for that country you are in? Thanks

      Hi Kenny,

      I haven’t tested it, but I am 90% sure that it will. Like, I have an unlocked phone and now it works everywhere in the world (well, most places). I don’t see why this would be any different. If you test it I would love to hear the results.

    Hi Mark,

    I’m sorry it is not working for you. I just re-tested it and I get the same results as I posted above. Are you trying with the Smart Bro Pocket Wifi model FXPR3L or a different model? Also, make sure you are connected to the internet through the pocket wifi you are trying to configure, as opposed to say, your home internet. I made that mistake the first I tried.

    This worked for me! Many thanks!

    I tried your methods and it worked for me
    but my 4G network is now 3G, how can i change it to 4G?
    please help

    • Bert LuxingReply September 12, 2018 at 22:53

      Hi Ryan,

      I’m glad it worked.

      The network speed will change from 3G, to 4G, to LTE depending on the network coverage in your area. It is possible that when you were using Smart you had 4g coverage in your area, but globe (or whatever your new one is) does not.

      Also, as you probably know, network coverage is not very stable in the Philippines. Especially outside of major cities. I’ve had my coverage bounce between 3G and LTE many times during a day. Sometimes it can even go down to 2G.

      It also depends on your sim card. If it is old maybe you don’t have the capability. I know that you can swap your old globe sim to an LTE for free. Or if need be, buy a new one for 40pesos (or something like that).

      I hope this helps. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

    After downgrading to V9 and unlocking the sim ? what if i decided to go back to the latest firmware which is V13 ? do you think it will still remain unlocked ? or it will revert back to being a exclusive for Smart again ?

    • Bert LuxingReply September 15, 2018 at 04:10

      Hi John,

      Sorry but I have no idea. No harm in trying though. If it reverts back then just downgrade and unlock it again.

      If you do try it I’d be interested to know the outcome.
