PostPosted: Mon Jan 27, 2014 3:29 pm    Post subject: MBR 1200B failover question

I will have NO wired internet connection. Cellular only. With the 1200B, it has two USB ports. If I have one USB aircard from Verizon in port #1, and one USB aircard from AT&T in port #2, will this give me automatic fail over? If I lose connection with Verizon in port 1, will it automatically fail over to AT&T in port 2?

Finally, can anyone tell me the differences in features between the MBR1200B vs MBR1400.

THANKS!!

To answer your questions:

You can either failover between the USB modems or configure them in a load balance configuration to share the load between the two cards.

The MBR1400 adds removable WiFi antennas, the option to do either 2.4 or 5Ghz WiFI, additional IPSec VPN tunnel support (20 tunnels vs. 2), ability to configure all LAN ports as extra WAN ports and operates at 10/100/1000 on the LAN side where the 1200B is 10/100. You also get 3 USB ports and 2 ExpressCard ports where the 1200B is 2 USB and 1 Express port.

The 1400 also has Extended Enterprise License support for L2TP, OpenVPN (SSL VPN) support, VRRP etc. The MBR1200B does not support this either.

Short answer - yes.

Longer answer - you need to make sure failover and failback is configured properly so that the router can detect when a failure has occurred so the router can failover or when the higher priority modem has reconnected so the router can fall back to it. Also, note, the failover priority is based on the setting in the UI and not if a modem is plugged into USB1 or 2, i.e. USB2 modem could be at a higher priority than USB1.

1400 has 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz radio option, but NOT concurrent, where the 1200b only has 2.4Ghz.

1400 supports a lot more advanced routing and enterprise features as well as more GRE or VPN tunnels per interface.

Let me know if you want more specifics.
