Huawei HG658b is a VDSL home gateway that supports 4 GE+2 FAX+2 Wi-Fi+2 USB ports. It is a device that provides high-speed internet access and voice over IP (VoIP) services for home users. However, to ensure the optimal performance and security of the device, it is important to update its firmware regularly.
Firmware is the software that controls the hardware functions of the device. It can fix bugs, improve stability, add new features, or enhance security. Updating firmware can also resolve compatibility issues with other devices or applications.
There are two methods to update Huawei HG658b firmware: using PC Manager or using the official Huawei website.
Method 1: Using PC Manager
PC Manager is a software that comes pre-installed on some Huawei computers. It can help you optimize your computer system and manage your drivers. You can use PC Manager to download and update Huawei HG658b firmware easily.
Open PC Manager on your computer.
Go to Optimization > Drivers (for some versions of PC Manager, directly click Drivers in the left pane).
Find Huawei HG658b in the list of devices and click Update.
Follow the onscreen instructions to download and install the latest firmware for your device.
Note: The user interface of PC Manager may vary depending on the version. The HUAWEI MateBook (Hertz) does not support PC Manager. If you are using this computer, use method 2 to update Huawei HG658b firmware.
Method 2: Using the Official Huawei Website
You can also visit the official Huawei website to download and update Huawei HG658b firmware manually. This method requires you to find the correct firmware file for your device model and region.
Visit the official Huawei website (http://consumer.huawei.com/en/support/index.htm) and enter HG658b in the search box to search for the product.
Click Software Download on the product details page.
Select your region and language from the drop-down menus.
Download the firmware file that matches your device model and version.
Decompress and install the firmware file according to the instructions in the readme file.
Note: Some firmware files cannot be downloaded or updated on the official website. We recommend that you use PC Manager to download and update such firmware files. Some products do not have a product details page on the official website. For these products, visit the official Huawei website, enter the product name in the search box to search for the product, click Software Download, and download and install the corresponding firmware file. If your computer is a business laptop, visit the official Huawei business laptop service website (https://bsupport.huawei.com) and download the corresponding firmware file for your computer.
