Ooo. Is it Peplink? I love peplink products.
If it's not Peplink, I hope they are just as good.



3Gstore.com's newest product is the Pepwave Surf Mini, a versatile WiFi Bridge that allows users to connect to a WiFi source and either repeat/relay/extend that connectivity wirelessly, or convert from wireless to wired access via ethernet port.

We've added this product primarily to serve our RV customers who are looking for a way to add "WiFi as WAN" input to their Cradlepoint routers like the MBR1000. (more about that in this video)

Check out our complete review of the Surf Mini

Very Happy

More and more I care about things that "just work" and have good support. My peplink triple wan router and my pepwave office point are two such products. Peplink is a company that has earned my trust.

Also, Google has recommended one of their wifi bridges for a few years now. I believe, but am not sure, that when they launched the Mountain View wifi service it was the only product they recommended then (there are now more on the recommended list).

My setup looks very close to the picture, except for a longer antenna on the Pepwave (I have an extension, magnetic mount, and 9dbi when I need to get better wifi range)

Only one thing about the MBR1200 - My A600 USB doesn't get a good signal right next to the router. A short extender stub gives better signal strength. With the PHS/CTR, it probably doesn't matter but with all the extra electronics with the N router and the Pep nearby it might be interfering with the evdo modem.

YMMV, but I would suggest trying a USB extension if you aren't getting the full strength.

I'm months late to the party, as I'm just now checking out the MBR1200 as a potential upgrade to my MBR1000. I notice the mention of "failover support", which I thought the MBR1000 already has? More importantly, I'm wondering if this new version enables a solution to the shortcoming I face with the MBR1000, where I can't effectively use load balancing because the jumping the IP from one modem to another causes some chat, banking, and other applications that are looking for a static IP session to fail (log out/time out/etc). Does the MBR1200 provide a way to let my IP "pass through" and appear static to the outside, or is there otherwise a workaround I could use with my MBR1000? Thanks.

When you switch from one modem to another, it will always switch IPs to the outside world.

There might be a way to use a proxy, so that the services you are connecting to, would not see an IP change on your end. Not sure how the proxy would handle the IP switch - but this in theory could work.

Thanks, Michael. If anyone has ideas on how this could be implemented, or any other possible solutions, please post. Love your site.

I don't think it can be solved if the applications require an unbroken connection or fixed IP, however you might want to try a proxy (like an anonymizing proxy or Tor - the onion router).

The applications have the problem.

Also, you might try to switch the failover order to the most reliable and constant connection instead of the fastest.

When will the Sprint Overdrive be compatible with the CradlePoint MBR1200?

I see that the UM185 for Cricket is listed as compatible.
I have the UM185 for Alltel, is it compatible as well?

mattlc10: The overdrive is a cell modem and a wifi transmitter all in one for 3g and 4g. It has a range of only 30 feet on the wifi. Your 1200 is compatible with the usb modem type and that is a good choice for several reasons.

1: There are no boosters available for these 4g devises yet. There are no antenna ports either
2: The 1200 will take the converted signal much further than the overdrive can push it.
3: It is easier to place the modem hooked to a usb extension in a good location for the cell reception. You need it some distance from the router anyhow so the cell and wifi transmitters don't conflict with each other anyhow

OK I have several questions that cover several products. But the center piece will possibility of using this MBR1200 router. First I'll give you the application. My wife and I drag race. We have a 48 foot goose neck trailer. We had a old Verizon wireless plugged into a D-Link DIR-450 with a 10 DB external omni antenna external to the trailer. Range was ok, to have a WIFI hot spot for friends during the races it also allowed us to access the internet with our lap top for our data we needed to race.
Now we are getting the new 4G EVO phones. I am wondering can I run a wired tether from my 4G EVO to the MBR 1200 and use an existing internal wall a Cat 5 cable to our laptop and at the same time have a WIFI hot spot. With the trailer having a metal skin on the outside range gets cut a lot. Is there a way to use an external mounted permanent outdoor antenna (I have enough external things to plug into the trailer as it is and all cables I have already run in the interior walls) I have read those antenna test using the mini external antennas as well as those Wilson directional ones. I am afraid with the Las Vegas temps that range well over 115 degrees and cold and freezing temps would destroy those types of antennas. Can a omni fiberglass type of antenna work? Will there be a need to run 2 antennas as I do notice there are 2 ports in the MBR 1200?

Thanks
