Backup and Restore tab
Use this tab to back up current MiFi settings to a file on your computer, restore (upload) a previously saved configuration file, reset the router to factory defaults, restart, or turn off your MiFi.
To back up current MiFi settings to a file on your computer, enter your Admin password in the Admin password box.
If you don’t remember the Admin password, click the down arrow next to Sign Out in the top-right corner of any web UI page and click Change Password, then Forgot Admin password?. Answer the displayed security question. The current Admin password will be displayed. Alternately, you can view the Admin password on the MiFi touchscreen by tapping Help > Admin Website or Menu > Settings > Advanced Settings.
NOTE: If you enter an incorrect password five times in a row, you will be locked out of the web UI. To unlock it, restart your MiFi.
Click the Download button. The file is automatically downloaded to your Downloads folder. This configuration file contains all settings for your MiFi.
NOTE: The backup file cannot be edited or viewed on the downloaded system or on any other device. This file can only be restored for this model of MiFi.
CAUTION: Restoring settings (uploading a configuration file) changes ALL of the existing settings to match the configuration file. This may change the current Wi-Fi settings, breaking all existing connections to the MiFi and disconnecting you from the web UI.
To restore system settings from a backup settings file, enter your Admin password in the Admin password field.
In the Select a file field, click Browse and choose a backup settings file to restore.
