It's a good idea to set up your router's wireless network name and password so that nearby users can't use your connection without your knowledge. It is fairly easy to do, but for those who want their router already configured when it arrives, we can set up your router with the network name and password of your choice before shipping for $15.

Cradlepoint provides a one-year standard warranty at no additional charge. This warranty period can be extended if desired (the two-year warranty option gives you an additional year on top of the standard one year for a total of two years of warranty protection, the three-year warranty option gives you an additional two years for a total of three years, and the five year option gives you an additional four years for a total of five years).

  • Our unprecedented access major wireless carrier support organizations
  • Advanced replacement, next-day parts replacement
  • Dedicated assigned Account Engineer (for networks with more than 50 sites)

  • Access to CradlePoint Enterprise Advanced Services Knowledge Base and online documentation
CradleCare Packages (optional) - details
Cradlepoint's Enterprise Cloud Manager (ECM) allows customers to easily manage multiple Cradlepoint routers across their network from one central Cloud-based portal. This can save admins time with firmware updates and applying custom configurations and also allows reports to be generated with a variety of different filters. In addition to these features, admins can also create sub-accounts with varying levels of access for technicians and other administrators.

ECM requires a one-time setup fee of $100 (which covers the activation of all the units for which you are purchasing ECM licenses) as well as a license for each of your routers. If you need to buy licenses for additional routers besides the ones you are purchasing today, simply adjust the quantity of licenses in your shopping cart and include a list of your routers' serial numbers in your order notes so we can add them to your ECM account.

Extended Enterprise License (EEL) is an additional option that provides advanced routing and security features that are designed to increase productivity and business continuity for an enterprise network.

EEL cannot be added alone - you MUST have ECM in order to have EEL - but ECM can be added on its own without EEL.
Enterprise Cloud Manager & Extended Enterprise Licenses (optional): - details

Built for much more than the average router

The MBR1400, or “Mission-Critical Broadband Router,” is a business-grade router designed specifically for small business, branch offices, and retail locations. Like other Cradlepoint routers, it does what you’d assume – allow you to share the connection from a 3G or 4G mobile broadband USB or ExpressCard modem – but it’s built for much, much more. In addition to supporting up to five 3G and 4G connections (including the unique Business-Grade Modems), it can also handle up to five traditional wired WAN connections (cable/DSL/T-1) as well as external WiFi networks as a source of internet (WiFi-as-WAN). The MBR1400’s ability to connect to so many different internet sources, plus its amazing failover functionality – the fastest of any Cradlepoint router, it can fail over in as little as 10 seconds! – make it the ideal router for businesses looking for one piece of equipment to handle their primary and backup connections.

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.

Date Added: 01/07/2014 by Chad S. (Phoenix, AZ)
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.

Date Added: 11/19/2013 by brian l. (auburn, CA)
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.

Date Added: 09/03/2013 by Bradley K. (Birmingham, AL)
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.

Date Added: 07/23/2013 by Kyle H. (Albany, NY)
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 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.

Date Added: 07/12/2013 by David B. (Lake City, FL)
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.

Date Added: 07/03/2013 by Paul C. (Canton, MA)
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.
