do you know of to backup the configuration files for this modem. i have one as well…..
I don’t have a clue how to back up the configuration files. Sorry! Try calling the “Fixed and Internet Call Centre” at 1300. Kind regards to you as well!
Once you setup your router you can save configuration files as backup.
To do the same for this router…
Login to router through web browser:
Type 192.168.1.1 in address bar
Password: admin (by default)
in web Configuration page
Select Tools at left.
Go to Restore & Backup
Press Backup button under Configuration File Backup
save the file to your preferred location.
how can I change the Network key (WPA) in this thing ?
I hope someone else can answer this for you as I don’t have a clue! Good luck!
To change the network key like WPA or WPA2
On left under Basic tab select Wireless LAN
On the right under WPA-PSK change the Pre-Shared Key (Which is your WPA key)
WPA2 is more secure so select Authentication Type to WPA2-PSK from drop down list located above WPA-PSK section.
Click submit at the end of page to save the setting.
Further to make changes permanent, reboot your router by selecting on left under Tools – Reboot.
Make sure it is Reboot with Current Setting selected press Restart button.
Thanks again! Who exactly is this masked helpful computer-wiz master jedi?!
i am trying to put user name admin and password admin but it’s not logging even i don’t change anything will there be other default password for it
Few months before, when I was waiting to be connected to Omantel ADSL, I was wondering which kind of ADSL router Omantel is going to offer so that I can prepare my home network project. 4 Desktops,3 Laptops and lot of wireless devices including iphones, ipads and galaxy phones located in different rooms in two story villa need cabling and supporting wireless devices.
As everyone knows, It is hard to find a knowledgeable person among Omantel office employees who can even answer your simplest technical question! I also doubt whether customer care can help you if they mistakenly pick up your call!
Surprisingly, I didn’t find Omantel web site any useful in above regard.
As a last destination I googled and came to this valuable thread which shown me a photo and model number of Omantel ADSL router.
Since then I used to visit your informative site and particularly to this thread.
By replying to this thread, I actually thanking you Andy.
Thanks again! I appreciate all your help and willingness to assist others with problems who happen to stumple upon this thread!
if you are using the same router as depicted above than someone have changed the password for the reason!
You can quickly restore the default settings of the HG530 by pressing the RESET
button on the rear panel. To restore the default settings, press and hold the RESET
button for over six seconds after the HG530 is powered on, and then release the button.
But Keep in mind, You will loose all the settings and you have to reconfigure everything back to a working device!
Specially ADSL connection settings which is provided by Omantel.
My Omantel modem is getting disconnected frequently. So I have to switch on & off at least three times a day. In basic settings it is configured to keep the connection always on. Can anyone help?
It is most probably a phone line problem! Check noise in phone line. Broken or damaged wire. Ask for Omantel line serviceman help.
Also check you have selected Nailed-Up connection under Basic- WAN setting.
Go to Tools – Diagnostics – DSL Line Diagnostics – Edit.
Upstream Noise Margin
Downstream Noise Margin
Check line attenuation db! Higher is faultier.
If you know your distance from the exchange this table may help but it only gives a ballpark figure
A way to “guestimate” the line attenuation is the following:
Downstream line attenuation:
Less than 1km should be 23-24 Mbit
1.0km = 13.81db = 23Mbit
1.5km = 20.7db = 21Mbit
2.0km = 27.6db = 18Mbit
2.5km = 34.5db = 13Mbit
3.0km = 41.4db = 8Mbit
3.5km = 48.3db = 6Mbit
4.0km = 56db = 4Mbit
4.5km = 62.1db = 3Mbit
5.0km = 69db = 2Mbit
You certainly do seem to know your stuff! I’m going to have to start “putting you on the payroll”! Thanks again for your continued support for those with technical problems!
I have typed ”192.168.1.1” on the address bar and put user name ‘admin’ and password ‘admin’ but it’s not logging in even i didn’t change anything. will there be other default password for it

Cyp, that’s way beyond my IT abilities. I hope someone can help you out!
The following link from Omantel shows how to setup ADSL configuration for all branded modems including the one provided by Omantel.
The guide is not pure step by step at router setup page but you will find all the settings to get reconnected to ADSL.

Hi, Mark. I don’t have a clue but hopefully some genius who follows comments on this blogpost will get back to you with the answer!
hi mark.. maybe i could be of help. did you mean you want to setup router to connect to wimax? if router still active with internet, it will conflict. if you want wimax to reach to reach 1st floor, you can use wireless extender or run a cable to another router to be you AP (Access Point). hope this is helpful
