Switch on your modem and follow the steps below:
Yes, the Huawei B818 is a Dual Band modem and supports the 2.4 GHz band and 5 GHz networks.
From your list of WiFi Network names, connect to the WiFi network ending in _5G. You can set your modem to prioritise the 5 GHz Network. When this feature is enabled, your devices will automatically connect to the 5 Ghz Network.
Restore the router to its factory settings and then use the default Wi-Fi password and login password to try again. The modems IP address is labelled on the sticker near your WiFi Network name (SSID) and password (WiFi key)
