Manually Adjust APN and Network Mode

Welcome Webafrican,

Let’s get your LTE at Home all set up!

To Log into your router:

Open your web browser (such as chrome or Firefox).

In the URL search bar, type in this address:

Select the “Settings” option.

You will be prompted to enter a user name and password. The default details are:

Username: admin

Password: admin

If you are using the Huawei  B618, you will be prompted to update the username and password.

We recommend doing this regardless of which router you are using.

Now that you’re logged in you need to select “Dial-Up” on the left screen menu.

Select Profile Management and then New Profile.

You need to enter a name. This is only a place holder so for short just call it CellC/Telkom internet

Now, (very important) in the APN section, type in: 

Cell C:

Telkom internet: internet

After that make sure the profile is selected, then you can hit Save and Apply.

Lastly, you will need to adjust the network type that is preferred to connect to.


Select: Dial-Up: Network Settings

Set the Preferred mode and Mode to “4G only”.

Hit “Apply”.

It will take your router a little while to locate available networks. Once it connects you can simply select:

Cell C 4G

Telkom SA 4G

Well done! You should now be online!
