We had some difficulties at first but they were resolved quickly. The level of support from 3Gstore.com and Cradlepoint has been nothing short of amazing. The router itself is fantastic. It is very reliable with the 3G/4G modems we've tested and the admin console has the best feature set we've seen on a router at this price point. The ability to create guest networks on different subnets is easily done with the click of a mouse, and saves the need for an extra WAP. Definitely worth a 5-star rating!

I'm having great success with this router. I've just moved out to a rural area where my only connection is via cellular broadband. As a developer I have to have a good connection. The router was very easy to set up and keeps a great connection.

i live in a very rural area, where internet access at its best was only 1 bar, or a -103 to-112 reading. after i purchased this router and paired it with the direct connect booster and omni antenna. my air card is at full 4g service with a -53 reading. we can run up to 6 devices and stream netflix on all at the same time with what seems to be no slow down on any. The ease of set up was within minutes, and the support from buying to setting up from the 3 g store has been 5 stars....

This is my second cradlepoint router. The previous MBR900 worked great while I used Verizon 3G, but seemed to be under-powered for 4G LTE (Verizon). So I upgraded to the MBR1400. I was pretty surprised how easy it was to set up. I really think anyone that takes the time to read the very clear step by step instructions in the getting started guide should be able to set it up. I also like the user interface. It is much better than the MBR900. No problems. Plugged it in, went through the steps in the guide, and it has run trouble free since. I don't know what more you could ask for in a router. I am using it with the Verizon UML290 USB modem and it was literally plug and play.
If there was one thing I might change, it would be that the WPS (Wireless Protected Setup) is on by default, and it took me a while to figure out how to disable it. I heard that WPS is a security risk so that if enabled, a hacker can gain access to your WiFi password. It can be turned off by checking a box in the advanced WiFi setup screen, but it took some searching, and the manual didn't seem to mention how to disable it, only how to use it.

So far so good. Was my first Cradlepoint router, so took a little while to familiarize myself with the GUI. A week later, I ordered a MBR95 as well. Once you learn the GUI, it will be easy to transition between similar Cradlepoint models, it seems.
I use this router for my wife's place of business. Replaced her limping DSL service [1.5MB download] with LTE speeds [9-18MB] from Verizon. Also replaced her existing POTS phone service with VOIP. Setting up a guest hotspot [only operational during business hours] was an easy task. The only hiccup was related with the VOIP phones; we could call out but not hear the phone ring when calls came in. In our situation, the problem was Cradlepoint firmware 4.0.3, which did not allow the option to diable AGP for VOIP. Firmware 4.1.1 , which came out a few days after our initial install, resolved this and allowed for the disabling of VOIP AGP. Once that was loaded in, our VOIP issues went away.
We allocated monies for an external antenna setup, if necessary. After performing a onsite survey, I determined there was no need for an external antenna for my wife's site. Signal would be really strong/stable as is, so we used the money saved in order to buy a refurbed USB modem and eliminate the 2-yr contract with Verizon. I also ordered the MBR1400 security cover for our USB modem and did not notice any degradation in overall cellular signal strength.
The VLAN and 4-SSID capability are definitely a plus for a place of buisiness [e.g. isolating the point-of-sale system from other internal networks; establishing employee and employer networks; etc.]. As mentioned earlier, I also purchased a MBR95 for my personal use on my work van. I don't need VLAN support or more than 2 SSID's in my case, so the MBR95 is ideal for my circumstances.
After a few weeks of use, we are pleased with both units. Only time will tell how long they will hold up.

We purchased this router to use with a Verizon 4gLTE usb internet card. This router is fast, dependable, and gives us quick access alomg with easy set up for a Brother wireless printer. We are delighted with it.

This router is one of the best investments we have made in our deployment of LTE remote sites. The easy of setup and performance are more than we expected. We have added the Verizon LTE modem cap and the speeds we are experiencing far exceed our expectations. Would highly recommend the Cradlepoint brand.
