Does it support either of the new Verizon LTE USB adapters out of the box?

Michael -

A few questions, if you don't mind:

1) Do you know if the CTR35 will fit in the Cradlepoint soft case that works with the CTR500 and PHS300?

2) Will the new configuration UI be carried over to the rest of the family?

3) Is Cradlepoint really switching to a new model of charging for firmware updates after 60 days? If so, very bad move on their part. I know it can be expensive to provide support for certain types of users who may not be as technical as others, but I would rather they just add an extra $20-30 to the initial price of the router and keep the firmware free.

4) And last, the WiFi-to-WAN is just another way of saying this thing can act as an Ethernet bridge...correct?

Thanks in advance!

1) The CTR35 is the same size as the CTR500/PHS300 (same case), so yes the soft case works great.

2) The configuration UI is actually based on a new hardware architecture (same as Clear Puck) and new OS (BSD based). So, my guess is that you are not going to see this show up on current/previous models.

3) The last 2 models they released MBR90 and now CTR35 have this. Good news, is the CTR35 provides free firmwares for the rest of the year. This isn't my call, so please send your comments to suggestions@cradlepoint.com

4) WiFi as Wan takes WiFi and makes it the input to your router. Imagine your internet in your home goes down, you can hook on to WiFi in the area and use that as "your" internet, without having to change configuration of any of your devices that hook up to your router. This is also very popular at an RV Park or Marina, where some have free WiFI that is great (and sometimes not).

I'll pass. This will kill the resale value of this hardware, for those of us that want to stay current. Guess I'll keep the CTR-350 for a while, and maybe add a Pepwave Surf to my network instead to get "Wifi as WAN".

Thanks for the quick answers, Michael!

I know it's not your call on the support charges, but I agree with CodinAndHaulin...I'll hang on to my current trio of CP routers that hopefully won't be abandoned anytime soon.

Based on my observation of the flurry of posts each time CP issues a firmware update - and the number of people who end up rolling back, it would seem to me that not including the cost of Firmware updates could be viewed as a positive feature of the new device....

Michael -

Any information on whether this new model supports WiPipe? I had the 500 before, and I was under the impression that WiPipe optimizes traffic (shaping / QoS), yet I see no reference to WiPipe on the CTR35. Or is WiPipe more smoke & mirrors, versus something that was really effective on 3G?

Has anyone compared the new CTR35 to the Zoom 4506? To me it looks like the CTR35 has some much better features, but the only thing I wish it had was the ability to be powered by a battery pack, or even USB power! Too many times at the airport, all of the power outlets are taken, or nonexistent. Why can't they make the CTR35 in a form factor similar to the PHS300?

I have a Zoom 4506, and it is horrible. Loses connection if the signal is fluctuating at all.

Getting a CTR35 this week, I'll post how it goes
