  • Internet Connections Supported: 1 Wired WAN, 1 USB + 1 ExpressCard (view full compatibility chart), WiFi as WAN (more info)
  • WiFi Standard: 802.11 B, G, & N
  • WiFi Range: 100-150' through walls, much greater unobstructed (variable depending on interference from other electronics and physical interference such as walls and ceilings)

  • Power Supply: AC Adapter included, DC adapter sold separately
  • Size: 4.8" x 2.9" x 0.77"

The CradlePoint CBR400 is a highly-featured router designed for business travel and stationary remote internet access. The router supports internet access via 3G/4G mobile broadband networks as well as traditional wired networks such as DSL or Cable.

With its compact size, the CBR400 is ideal for travel or use in a small enclosure (ATM, kiosk, vehicle). With failover/failback capability, the CBR400 supports multiple combinations of wired or wireless internet. The router increases internet availability and business continuity by detecting network failures and automatically switching over to the other network(s).

The CBR400 provides secure and reliable VPN functionality, allowing users to create, manage and terminate an IPSec VPN session. It allows for secure access to company networks while travelling and a secure way to transmit sensitive data to and from a remote site.

*Compatibility with all WiFi networks cannot be guaranteed. Networks requiring authentication on a "splash page" (e.g. Starbucks WiFi) in particular can be hit or miss.

  • Supports multiple combinations of Internet access, including 3G/4G wireless broadband as well as wired access (DSL/Cable)
  • Supports most wireless data modems from the leading carriers (modem and service sold separately)
  • Supports pass-through VPN connections (IPSec, L2TP, PPTP) to enable laptops with a VPN client to connect through the router to corporate networks.
  • “WiFi-as-WAN” mode enables use as a WiFi repeater or as a WiFi-to- Ethernet adapter for non-WiFi devices.
  • Ethernet port can be configured to “WAN Mode” to create a WiFi hotspot from a wired internet connection
  • Network Failover support. When a wired internet source (DSL, Cable Modem) is connected to the ethernet port, the CBR400 will automatically detect an internet outage and switch to the wireless 3G/4G internet.

The CBR400 offers more features than the CTR500

The CBR400 is the successor to the CTR500, which has been one of Cradlepoint's most popular travel since 2008 thanks to its compact size, support for both USB and ExpressCard modems, and Cradlepoint didn't change either of those features when it comes to the new CBR400. The CBR400 is nearly identical in appearance to its predecessor, from the dimensions to the ports - just like the CTR500, the CBR400 features one USB port, one ExpressCard port, and a single ethernet port that can be configured as either a WAN input or LAN output. The CBR400 isn't exactly the same as the CTR500, of course (Cradlepoint re-vamped it for a reason!)...

Date Added: 02/05/2013 by John H. (Fredericksburg, TX)
I have been extremely happy with the CBR400 since purchasing it from the 3G Store, especially since I am in the Texas Hill Country and have Sprint broadband in a rural setting. I am also using the 32 in. external omni to jack up the signal to my aircard (EX-720) which is mounted in the CBR400. But the absolute coolest application I have for the router is through use of the optional 12v power adapter. When we go on a trip in our Ford Flex now, we simply velcro the router next to the right rear side window and plug into the cigarette lighter jack and then we are online wherever we go - including when we park outside a restaurant and go inside with the laptop. It's also way cool on the beach and you can hook other people up on guest mode if they ask! Also, I have the 32 in. omni mounted on a foldable tripod stand that we carry with us in situations like that for an extra signal boost. I highly recommend the CBR400 to all serious users, and commend the 3G Store for their excellent support...
