how do i unlock a netgear Nighthawk MR2100 to use a belong sim

I have a MR2100 nighhawk locked to telstra but out of contract and want to use a belong sim since it was using the same network but I can get connectivity from the network when I insert the belong sim. i there a setting I can change or do I need to unlock the router?

You would need to talk to Telstra on the chat service (app or browser) or 132200 to get the unlock code.  Not so long ago, you could do that online, but I think that is no longer an option.

 

You will need the device IMEI number for Telstra to do that and there may be a charge. 

 

Once unlocked, you put the new SIM in and it should prompt for the unlock code.
