I love this router. I live in an area that does not receive hi-speed internet yet. I use a usb modem from Sprint. It was easy to set up and works exactly as described.

Love this little thing! My cable went out along with my wireless router so I fired up my CTR350 with my Verizon air card and I was off an running in less than a minute, and using my iPod Touch and my laptop. It my personal hotspot. Can't wait to get my Tekkeon TekCharge MP2250 battery pack so that I can use it untethered to AC power. It's great!

Some of the best money ever spent! I was bewildered at the ease of use. Took it out of the box, plugged in ac adapter, attached my Verizon UM150 USB modem, ran an ethernet cable from it to my iMac G5 and I was online! Can't get any easier than that. For my macbook, just had to enter the password, as the instructions so plainly tell you,and I was up and surfing the web on both laptop and desktop. The whole process took about five minutes. This product rocks! I wish I'd found it months ago.

Fantastic!! Had it up and running on Dell laptop and EeePC via Wi-Fi in a few minutes. Had a glitch with a wired connection to desktop...but a few minutes with Victor (a Tech at the 3G Store) had that straightened out. Had to reset the TCP/IP settings on ethernet card to automatically acquire IP address. Now...no worries! Great!

I've been using a CTR 350 with a trucker antenna (mounted to fascia of house) and a Verizon U720 data card for a few weeks now and have been impressed with the ease of use and speedy connection. I had been using the trucker/U720 setup connected to a laptop while trying to decide where to mount the antenna (almost fell off the roof a few times) and found that, for whatever reason, I got slightly worse reception, according to SSI, but significantly better transfer speeds. I'm guessing the CTR 350's firmware is a little better than VZ's software, and maybe it is just a more honest reporter of SSI? In any case, it has been working great, both using the WiFi and Ethernet port.
I also applaud it's out-of-the-box security setup, where event though there is no WPA or WEP security (which would make it harded to initially setup) it confronts every new user with a login page (served from the router) before allowing them to do surf anywhere. Although I had no need for this and disabled it (which was easy in the web interface), it's a great default state for most situations (perfect for mobile office) and a unique, safer alternative to most wireless router's unlocked default state.
Two minor reasons I'm holding off one star. Firstly, the web interface could be simpler and feels a little slow. Secondly, for my non-mobile purposes, I wish Cradlepoint had a model besides their high-end Draft N that sacrificed some smallness for a few more ethernet ports. Both quibbles on an otherwise solid product.

This little guy is GREAT! We have a Sprint Sierra Aircard 595U and live outside the city limits.The only choice we had was dial-up and it was so slow I didn't even bother to get online anymore. So after purchasing the aircard we were still having sporadic signals. We got the CTR-350 put it upstairs on a windowsill. Set-up was a snap and my husband and I both have laptops and spend all of our time downstairs and this little guy has made a world of difference in our signal. It is more consistent and honestly most of the time it is faster than cable DSL that we had when we lived in town. Obviously it helps too that we are in a good area for the Sprint aircard but this CTR-350 has made a HUGE difference. Finally we have a choice in rural areas besides very slow dial-up and very expensive sattelite internet. 3Gstore also has very fast delivery. I received it in 3 days and payed only for standard delivery. I had to re-set the router once because we had a storm and our power went off than on and seemed to have an effect on the speed. It was so simple to re-set and now it works great again.

I received this unit today and I was up and running in 10 minutes with my 595U Aircard.
We slapped on to laptops and I was getting a download speed measured by Thunderbird of 70KBS downloading a piece of software and was able to surf the net on the other laptop without any painful delays. With one laptop I got 700kbs download speed measured by www.pcpitstop.com. Bottom line this unit met my expectations without any frustrations. I did not apply the firmware patch and will wait to the Ethernet problem is solved. BTW for the 595U users on Verizon, the extended antenna made a noticeable difference in performance.

Had the router up and running on an XP machine in less than 10 minutes, and it was my first wireless router installed in my life. Worked Perfect !!

The Cradle-Point EVDO Router is everything it is said to be and then some. Right out of the box, I connected my Sierra Wireless AC595U USB card to the USB port and powered it up. Right away, this router configured itself, asked for the connection password, and woooosh....I was connected to the Internet. This Router is extremely easy to use, the Quick Start Guide is user friendly, to the point, and makes installing the router fun too. I tested the distance and got better than 50 feet away and still had an extremely powerful reception. I would highly recommend this router to all whom want to expand the use of their air-cards to more than just one computer, but several. I look forward to using mine in my RV, and would also recommend this Router to RV fun lovers! This is the Cat's Meow.....and has a small footprint, so it won't take up valuable space. If your looking for an EVDO Router, look no further, this one will do everything you want and then some. Besides, its cheaper in price than it's competition. You can't go wrong with the CradlePoint CTR-350 EVDO Router.
