Re-using the Huawei HG633 with another provider

Team Player

I am leaving TalkTalk and I currently have the Huawei HG633 router.

Is there any way of re-using the TalkTalk router with a new provider?. I am moving to NowBroadband.  I logged into the router, but is there is place to change user name and password? (are these relevant? Or are connections automatic?).  NowBroadband only supply a 2 port router. I want a 4 port router. It would be nice to re-use existing equipment, rather then equipment ending up in landfill?

@rajeshk4u to be fair to TalkTalk, and they are far too polite to say this, wouldn't you be better talking to your new supplier?

So long as your supply is not fibre the modem router should work.

I don't work here and all my opinions are my own.

I did ask for help on NowTV forum. They refered me to some posting on TalkTalk forum, but they were for other  TalkTalk routers. I am switching from TalkTalk fibre to NowTV fibre. 


The router, has a TalkTalk logo (when logging in)......

If you set the connection mode to ADSL rather than auto in the router config then this should allow you to change the username / password.  You can then change the connection mode back to auto.


With fibre, authentication details are not required as these are done at network level, but I don't know what system Now use.
