I got stuck last week when I was trying to unlock one of my huawei E156G datacard modem after carelessly dropping my huawei e303 usb stick alongside my glo carrier simcard in a commercial vehicle I boarded.

MUST READ: How to Find Your Datacard/Modems IMEI Number

I was restless as I needed to go online at that moment but there was no device that I could use to get my PC connected to the internet, during my confused state, I realized I have got an MTN modem that I had hardly use. While other network sim was inserted, I plugged and played the modem on my PC via its USB port only for me to discovered that the 10 attempts for unlocking most zte and huawei modems have been used up.

While still thinking of what to do, I hit Google and visited some webpages on all sorts of datacards unlocking issues and problems relating to mine, I was able to do the following to have my modem unlocked, flashed, re-unlocked, upgraded and re-installed. These are the three steps I followed and yours should be similar:

1. Re-calculate the modem unlock code
2. Flash the modem
3. Download and Upgrade the modem model firmware
4. Download and install a customized dashboard

#1. Re-calculate the Modem Unlock code

You can calculate your modem unlock code manually or automatically. You can download this software if you want to generate your modem unlock code manually, download this Manual Modem Unlocker or this Automatic Modem Unlocker that will initialize and read your modem up from its COM Port. Please know that you will need this unlock when you’re resetting and flashing your modem.

#2. Reset the Modem
Download, extract and run this software for restting and unlocking huawei modems

Tick the “Auto-Calculate Code” and “Auto-Unlock Modem” these tabs you will easily see at the middle of the dashboard as seen on the image below.


Underneath “SERVICE” on the left side, tick “RESET MODEM” thereafter, you should click “READ MDM DATA” you will then need to wait for few secconds and finally click “Unlock”

After a few seconds, your modem should have been fixed and the used 10 attempts counter restriction reset. Please you should take note of the unlock code (NCK)

#3. Download and Upgrade and the modem model Firmware by Flashing

Even after following the above steps, your modem will be showing 10 of 10 used, invalid sim or network selected or something similar to this statement.

You’re going to need to down the specific firmware update for your modem or datacard model. This you can easily get and download free from DC Files

When you get to the webpage, select your modem make (huawei) from the drop down menu and click the icon. The next and third page will be where you will be able to select the model of your datacard and the most recent firmware update respectively

After a successful download of the file which is about 7.41MB, this software size varies, depending on your modem make and model, unzip and install

This your modem firmware update wizard will search for your device for some seconds, and its shows another page displaying the configuration and IMEI number of the modem

The next steps flash your modem and you will see a message “The wizard is ready to update your Data Card” on your comuter screen from the page environment displaying four warnings

firmware update in progress

Click start to authorize this process and you will be prompted to enter the modem unlock code you got from step 1

After like 3-5 minutes, your modem should have been flashed and a new copy of the firmware installed


Once the process completes, you will see a successful update message as you can see from the image below


#4. Download and install a new Customized Dashboard

For a customized mobile partner download, visit DC Files again and follow the exact steps you followed to get your modem Firmware update.

After a successful download, unzip the file and run the program, accept the licensing agreement and click the next tabs that follow to continue

This process also take between 3-5 minutes to complete

Effecting the Full changes on Your PC – Shutdown & Reboot your PC

After a successful re-installing and updating of a fresh version of the dashboard on your PC, you can now go ahead  to shut down and  re-boot your PC. Please  I mean switching off not hibernating or logging  off. This is so to effect the newly installed software changes on your PC.

You might also be asked to enter an unlocking code again, at this time your modem counter had been reset to zero (0) of ten (10). You re-use the manual or automatic approach in step one above.


Installing the Newly Download Customized Dashbaord

Please note that you will need to manually install the dashboard partner on your PC even though it had been downloaded into your datacard drive. Also know that you can decide to change between any of the dashboard of your choice either the non-customized or the customized one. Just follow these simple steps below

Click “Start Menu

Click “Computer

And double click your modem device drive e.g Drive (F:) and install, after successful installation, you may need to follow these steps  here to configure it for your preferably chosen network.

You can see from the image below i am now using a different dashboard, different from the one above that I have just fixed.

Benefits/Importance/Advantages of Flashing and Installing a Different Firmware and Dashboard Updates

* Speed

As you could see from the image above in my newly fixed huawei E156G data, in front of the 3G 62120 there is the word “turbo”, this is not just having literary meaning, it simply means speed at which the modem alongside with its firmware and dashboard are working. Before I did this, MTN and AIRTEL was so poor in my location, but after this, they are now rocking with amazing speed

* Stable Connectivity

I was equally experiencing fluctuating server downtime, but after this fixing, update and upgrade, it has been minimized

* Better/Different User Interface

I think, this new Graphic User Interface I am rocking is better than the one I have be on, its simple and intuitive

Recommended Practices While Resetting, Flashing and Installing Firmware and Dashboard Updates

* Ensure it’s another network operator simcard that is inserted in your modem tray

* Ensure your PC battery power is sufficient or plugged to a stable power source

* To attain an error-free results, don’t shutdown, hibernate or log off your PC while these installations processes are being carried else your Pc could get damaged

We Need Broadband, Not ‘Plug “N” Pray’ Internet Modem Connection

This statement sound strange but it is truly not. Gone are the days when people will have to struggle a lot before they could access the internet, but the story has now changed. Not that a changed state, because people are still praying for broadband internet even till this moment and the story has never changed. The only thing that has changed is that, people can now enjoy the internet more than how it was two to five years ago.

Governments of all levels have campaigned on providing good speed and high standard internet connection but few of those promises have been meet. So, we are now saying, we need broadband internet connection. The one that can serve our internet connection needs and not the one that will give us more problems. We need broadband internet connection that will make it easier for an average man on the street to be able to surf the world tirelessly.  We need good broadband internet access that will enable us to download free apps for ringtones on our computer or mobile devices. We need good internet setup that will bring ease to our mode of living.

We need a broadband internet access that will be useful for streaming videos and music online like how some parts of the world have been doing. We need an internet connection that is capable of giving fast speed internet download capabilities; the speed that can stream, download, and make it easier for people to execute tasks in a jiffy.

But, if the government and ISPs companies cannot provide us good broadband experience, what shall we do to control the situation? Because of this question is why this article is being written by me to give you a better idea of what you must do and what you mustn’t try to do at all in order to make your internet connection fail you when you needed it most.

In this article, I shall be talking on some things you can be doing that will help your internet connection conditions and not to destroy it.

Limit or Stop Sharing With Other People without reasons       

The last thing I’d expect you to do with your broadband internet connection is sharing with just anyhow you like. You need to have good habit of sharing your internet connection setup with other people because if don’t, people will misuse the opportunity and turn your internet connection setup into something awkward for you.

The best way to avoid that is to limit how people can have access to your internet connection, be it wireless or analogue setup. You just have to limit how your router shares connection with other computers around your home, office or anywhere ever.  You can program your wireless router to limit how people can connect to your wireless connection setup, and likewise, you can manually add new users to your connection by disabling your router’s broadcasting feature to make the connection private to you.


Disable automatic updates on your computer

There’s nothing else in the world that can make you to have bad internet connectivity experience than installing many add-ons on your web browser. Having a lot of add-ons installed on your browser is a great sign that you might definitely have a bad internet connection experience sooner, even if not consistently.

Reduce browser add-ons

There’s one thing that I’ve come to realized throughout the time I’ve spent online as a computer expert, and that thing is the effect of browser add-ons on user’ internet experience. Addons reduces your chances of getting better internet experience and any serious computer geek should try as much as possible to avoid having many add-ons installed.

How to remove browser Addons from browsers?

I guess you were trying to ask me how you can remove add-ons from your browser. Don’t worry much because I’m going to explain them below step by steps:

For Mozilla Firefox:

Click on the Menu option and then navigate to where you will see Add-ons. Open the add-ons    option and then remove every single add-on that cannot add value to the browser’s functionality.

For Google Chrome:

From the spanner-like icon at the top right hand section of the browser, select “options” from that dropdown menu and choose “settings”. After that is done, at the right hand side of the screen, you will notice three fold-up clickable links, select “Extensions” from the links and there you go. From all extension lists, remove or disable each ones that you do not want to be on your computer and then close the popup window. Restart your browser and start enjoying the internet once again!

This is how to make your broadband internet connection perform excellently and forget giving yourself problems with bad ISP’s experiences. Thanks for reading
