If your Swift data gets exhausted rather quickly then its possible that unauthorized devices are connected to your Swift Wi-Fi network. Monitor connected devices using https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-1099.html. If changing your password using https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-1098.html still doesn't lock the devices out of your network then your best best is to blacklist them.

Steps to block / blacklist a device from accessing your Swift WiFi Hotspot


  1. In your browser's address bar, visit http://homerouter.cpe , 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.8.1 then press Enter

    Default password: user

    If the above credentials don't work then try

    Default username: admin
