5 out of 5 eggsVery reliable product

Pros: I got the MBR-1400v2 with the MC200LE side attachment and swapped out all the antennas with high gain counterparts.

I've been using that setup paired with unlimited 4G data on Verizon for nearly two years now.

So far, the device has not let me down... Any disruptions are on the carriers end. You can set up many fallback connections as backups in case a connection fails.

The device itself is very sturdy and modern/robust in appearance, absolutely love the design.

Feature wise, it has everything AND the kitchen sink.

All sorts of graphs, specific data, system level logging, etc.
There are quite a few tunnels, VPN, BGP, Proxy type connections/protocols.

Updating the firmware for the device and attached devices is extremely easy, just click a button and it automatically downloads and installs it for you. They provide very nice release notes with every update, and it seems to be actively and regularly updated.

You can even SSH into the device. It seems to run some sort of lightweight version of linux... Not sure. I prefer the web interface. Top notch.

The amount of features is so chalk full, this hands down beats any consumer router I have ever used. (This is far from regular consumer grade gear!)

As I just said, this is definitely not something you would run down to your nearest box store to buy...


I live in an area where the local cable company refuses to offer any service too me, even though they have a 10 Gig fiber line running a few feet in front of my house. Politics... (Charter Cable...)

The only option for service was DSL, and that is not going to cut it for what I do. I run a business full time and require a reliable high speed connection 24/7.

So I managed to get a hold of an unlimited data account with Verizon, and bought this device directly from Cradlepoint.
(Was about $800 with the modem! Newegg definitely is the way to go nowadays.)
A small investment, but it has definitely payed off.

So far I have pushed well over 10 terabytes through the device and the attached 4g modem... I know, Verizon hates me.

I upload and download very large files on a regular basis, stream HD movies, play FPS games... Latency and bandwidth is no problem. (<50ms usually).

Now I can laugh at the DSL provider, as I get around 50/15 mbps.
(They keep sending me spam mail begging me to sign a contract with them.. Too funny.)

Cons: Not much to put here really...
A few compromises with this device over other, more consumer/niche devices.

I really wish they had included an RJ45 connector, not for DSL/etc, but for using any phone capability that comes with the attached modem (More specifically the MC200LE, also made by Cradlepoint specifically for this device). It's a shame that the plan with my carrier gives me text/talk ability, but I cannot use it on that line. It would have been a good feature.

I believe the device can receive SMS, but not send.. (If you can it is very convoluted.)

That's the only thing that I really wanted from this device but it didn't have. But it's no big deal, provided I basically have a mobile connection that is much better than your average permanent cable connection.

Other Thoughts: Overall, very happy with this device.

Every other mobile router with the capability to use 4G as a means of WAN has been absolutely terrible at it. (Yes I am looking at you, Netgear MBR1515, MiFi Hotspot 4620L)

Other means of connectivity before I found this router was using the hotspot feature on many, many smartphones.
I eventually settled on the Galaxy S3's hotspot mode, was decent at it, but I eventually pushed so much data through it (Terrabytes) that it failed presumably from heat. (Device was too hot too touch during operation, ruled out battery failure).

So, please excuse the length, backstory and scattered writing behind this review...

I just can't imagine where I would be without this device, as it has spared me 2 years of pain and suffering.

5 out of 5 eggsVery capable and easy to configure

Pros: Easy to configure, and works great with USB modems for providing quick-delivery of remote internet services for small offices. I have 5 of these so far and they beat the others hands-down.

Cons: Haven't found any yet

1 out of 5 eggsVPN Does Not Work

Pros: The public wifi hotspot feature works well

Cons: VPN does not work , drops connection or does not connect at all, I have more than one VPN connection setup and every restart establishes a connection to different Locations, So I know the setup part is correct. I purchased four routers tried all of them same result.

Other Thoughts: Cradlepoint support did not respond to the ticket I submitted on line ??

1 out of 5 eggsIP-Passthrough

Pros: Failover protection, works with current plan and UBS modem.

Cons: Needed IP-Passthrough with current Netgear VPN Router and using terminal services. Cradlepoint devices will only do IP-Passthrough when using DSL, it will not work with cable broadband

Other Thoughts: I called Cradlepoint prior and they said it would work, after buying and spending several days with TS, they decided it would not work.

5 out of 5 eggsCradlepoint...Mmmmmm..Good!

Pros: It's Cradlepoint - They haven't let me down yet!

Cons: It only tastes like chocolate if you have a very - very strong imagination (and teeth!)

Other Thoughts: We have a few of these critters running around now in mobile marketing vehicles for survelaince apps as well as at a few remote offices for the same purpose. They always keep them GSM modems whipped into shape and connections alive!
