Now Shipping! Order yours today - Add to Cart to see sale price
-- from the EVDO Experts at http://3gstore.com




UPDATE: Check out our complete CTR500 Router Review!

UPDATE: Firmware 1.3 enables LOAD BALANCING!

Think of it as a CTR350 that adds an ExpressCard slot and a case size of a PHS300. The CTR500 will support USB, ExpressCard and have an ethernet port as well as an external wifi antenna jack. The CTR500 does not have a rechargeable battery like the PHS300.

It will have dual ports (1 USB & 1 ExpressCard) which will support fail-over. If you look in the picture, there is a Sprint and Verizon card, so if I go to an area that doesn't have coverage of one, it will fail-over to the other card.

This isn't meant to replace the PHS300 (Battery version), just a stretched out CTR350 that supports an ExpressCard.

I like the video. Instruction sheets and web pages are so cold.

Was that a Canon DVD reflecting ever so briefly on the shiny case?

yes jack, it was a several year old canon miniDV camcorder.

with the positive response we've been getting over these last two videos, we are planning to do more of them, and are considering a better quality camcorder to ensure brighter video.

thanks for the support!

Video brighness can be adjusted in the editing software but one change would be to use a medium grey background instead of a white background since white is bright and will cause the auto brightness to be set lower causing a darker image.

Of course you can do what I used to do and manually adjust the exposure using the viewfinder as a guide. There should be + and - exposure adjustments somewhere. Check the manual.

Or call Canon Support... Razz

Cradlepoint CTR500 Router Review is almost done. Should be up any day now. Not sure that pricing has been confirmed. Probably around $180.

here's a photo of the CTR500 sitting on top of MBR1000:

Well, I like the two new features, wifi ant. hookup and the s-meter. Sold my 350 and should have the 500 Thursday. 3G gave me 20 bux off retail for having purchased the modem there in Feb.

It LOOKS like a female SMA, but I can't tell for sure. It's the tiniest WiFi connector I've ever seen, way smaller than the BNC-types on the Linksys, for example.
