My MBR95 just informed me there is a new firmware (3.5). Anyone tested this out yet? I'm always very hesitant to fix something that ain't broke but always like to have the best LTE support.

Yes, I've been running the pre-release. MBR95 w/ UML290 in 4g ad 3g areas in a vehicle moving around. No problems.

Go to: http://www.cradlepoint.com/firmware/MBR95.
Check the release note for the new firmware to see if the have done anything to improve service with your modem or just added new modem support as is often the case with new f/w.

Thanks for the news, I'm updating my 1400 right now. I don't have an LTE modem with me right now, but it does look like they've added some potentially interesting features. Should have some more info in the morning Smile

Chicken. Very Happy

@All - Yes LTE stability has greatly improved along with several other features and bug fixes. Please check out the release notes.

I have upgraded to this on my 1400, however I notice that I don't think the router is reading the correct signal strength from my UML 290 anymore. After the update, it shows 100% with 4 bars, while before it would show a more accurate 1-2 bars. However I do like how much faster it connects the modem to the internet than it did before. I am in a 4G/LTE area. Still connected since I initially started the router 3 hours ago and posting from it now.

I also like the new feature to "throttle" hotspot service users. Wasn't there another router that had this feature? I may actually have a use for this now.

Uhh, other than that I haven't had a chance to play around with it a whole lot more. But I will post here if I find anything unusual.

Something I would like to see someday is the ability to map specific modem/WAN ports to specific defined networks. Dunno if that's possible through software, but I would definitely have a use for it if it is.

See Internet Settings -> Wan Affinity. This might be just what you are looking for.

I will talk with our modem guys on the signal strength.

PostPosted: Mon Feb 27, 2012 10:36 pm    Post subject: Firmware no good!

I just updated my Firmware on my MBR 1400 and now the wire connections don't work! On the router the Ethernet lights used to blink blue i believe when data was being transferred now all are solid green even though i only have 2 connections. When i go to the cradle point on screen think it shows no wired connections. i have tried to revert back to 3.41 but cant since i have no wired connection ability. I think i'm in trouble!

@mbundy10 - have you tried factory reseting? If that does not work, please call support.

Renamed thread to be:

"Cradlepoint Firmware 3.5 [Success/Failure]?"

Please continue to post your success or failures with this firmware. Our techs will be testing this firmware over the next few days and we will post our findings...

You can find more information about the latest firmware release here - Cradlepoint Firmware Release 3.5

I updated my MBR1400 last night and played with the WAN affinity settings briefly. It's a useful feature to have and I'll be playing around with it today to see how well it works.

I will talk with our modem guys on the signal strength.

I have tried the modem in all 3 USB ports with the same result. The firmware on the UML290 is the one ending in 242. It is showing incorrectly on the router LED's and in the admin panel. I do like how much faster it connects versus the old firmware, where the router would reset 2 or three times before it would connect. Other than the modem signal strength issue, everything is working great.

I probably worded that badly, I guess what I am trying to do is, lets say I have 3 defined networks: Primary LAN (4 ethernet ports, and SSID 'admin'), Guest LAN (SSID 'PublicGuest'), User LAN (SSID 'TrustedUsers'). I have an ethernet WAN source, a Clear WiMax modem, and a Verizon LTE modem all active WAN sources plugged into the router. I want to be able to do something like map the ethernet source to the Primary LAN, the WiMax modem to the Guest LAN, and the LTE modem to the User LAN. Sorry for the confusion on that.

@rincosplayer - I thought I PM'd you about the signal strength problem you have described, but it appears as if I didn't.

What it comes down to is that we had to reverse engineer the signal strength from the Verizon connection manager. When working with Verizon on the LTE connectivity issues they noticed that our mapping between RSSI values and signal strength bars was incorrect so they actually sent us the correct mapping to use.

In short, what is in 3.5.0 should be correct. But we are only human so if you could go to the 'Status -> Internet Connections' page, select the modem in the device list and let me know what the RSSI value being reported is. Thx

As I said before using the Wan Affinity rules you can assign traffic from LAN1 to WAN1 and LAN2 to WAN2 and LAN3 to WAN3 just like you are describing.

Scott, is there any documentation on the WAN affinity feature? I consider myself a fairly competent user but am pretty confused on how to fill out the rule form. Can i make a group of machines use a particular WAN exclusively? How?
