We purchased this on an 'emergency' basis, when the 3G node on the only cell tower in town went down and our old product (MBR1000) would not support 4G. It was truly 'plug it in and it works'. However, I'm still tweaking various settings so we get better performance out of it. I must say that the documentation for this model is INFINITELY better than for the old MBR1000. I'm sort of technical, but I really don't know the ins and outs of networking, and the documentation does a fairly good job of explaining what the various settings do and what they are for. The GUI interface is much different than the MBR1000, and I still have trouble finding what I"m trying to find... it doesn't seem as intuitive as the old interface, but perhaps it's just what I got used to. I really like the fact that it has holes in the back to mount on the wall. I guess our old one did, too, but we never noticed them. The documentation for this model actually shows the best positioning for wall mounted, and that will be the next thing we do after deciding the best location. We live in a log home, and signals don't pass through logs very well. My husband's office is in the basement, and got very poor signal from the MBR1000. He gets a much, much better signal from this one. I haven't found the 'failover' setting yet (well, I found it once, but didn't know what it was for, and now that I've read about it in the manual, I can't find it again), so I've had to manually reboot it a couple of times when the cell signal was lost. I've had some difficulty with the aircard not making super good contact. I'm not sure if that's because of wear on the air card, or it's just not a good fit. I have to move the aircard around a little bit in the port in order for it to make good contact. Overall, I'm extremely pleased.

the mbr1400 replaced a well used mbr1200. mbr1400 works very well and has a much improved interface. we a glad we upgraded.

I've been using the MBR1400 for about 5 months now and really don't have much to say about it other than it's pretty much flawless. It's reliable and has a very rich feature set with an easy to use interface.

We had an MBR1200 v1 which started to fail after 3 years of continuous use. Replacing it with the MBR-1400 everything is now functioning perfectly and the wifi signal is definitely stronger than our other router and our MBR1200. The MBR1400 offers nice features like guest wifi SID and additional management features. Overall, the software upgrade between the MBR1200 v1 and MBR1400 is a bit of a mixed bag. Some of the web UI is better, some is worse. The web interface on the MBR1400 is good. Setting up was easy. Drop in replacement with more features.

This router is extremely configurable. It had tons more options than I needed. I bought this to repeat the signal from a Verizon MiFi Jetpack 4620LE. It was really easy to set up through the web interface and worked great out of the box.

Best router for the money.

We are using this MBR1400 in a construction trailer with no possibility of any cable or fibre connectivity. We are using it with a Pantech UML 290 with extender antenna. So far, with almost a month onsite, it has performed like a champ. We have it configured with a site to site VPN tunnell so users can log onto their machines and be directly connected to the HQ shared drives and Exchange mail without having to utilize the software VPN. When I run speedtest.net I get almost 10 Mb up and down. This is faster than many TW cable "business class" networks I manage! We also have a network printer and network external hard drive connected via ethernet cable to the router and the "print speeds" are a bit slower than the same model printer goes at HQ, but not to bad. this is our third Cradlepoint product from 3g store and we are extremely pleased with the service, both pre sales and after sale. their tech support is better than almost every vendor we use (and we use some of the large ones; sym-cough cough-antec!)

The MBR1400 router has amazing feature set, performance and capabilities. Outstanding quality, not found in many routers and definitely not at this price.

Excellent router! You can never go wrong buying a CradlePoint product. I plugged in my air-card and was up and running. I had a CradlePoint 1000 prior to purchasing the CradlePoint 1400.

Awesome router with an amazing set of features. Way more than I'll ever need, but it's up and running with no need for tinkering or tweaking. Load balancing works fantastic. Makes internet access in our RV a real pleasure, even though we probably could have got by with a less pricey option.
