I am using the Cradlepoint mobile broadband router with a Verizon mobile usb device. I had not heard of Cradlepoint before but they are about the only company that really is mostly devoted to mobile broadband routers that I found.
I was very surprised and happy to discover that Cradlepoint has several higher quality features. Such as a quality website, packaging for their product and excellent documentation. Especially these days when you are lucky to get any printed documentation with an electronic product.
I checked Cradlepoint's website first to see if my Verizon mobile device was supported and it was. It was very user friendly to use their website to find the answer.
I set up the router within 30 minutes. I plugged the USB mobile modem into the router but the router could not find the modem. However, in the printed documentation that came with the router it talked about this potential and the need to do a couple of firmware upgrades to fix the problem. The documentation and website walks you right through the process. I did the upgrades and just like that the modem was recognized and I was on the Internet through the Cradlepoint router.
I am using a desktop, a netbook and a laptop in our home network, with a mix of Microsoft XP and Windows 7 operating systems. Everything is working well and has been for about a month now, since I bought and set up the router.

I recently was in the market for wireless router to use in extending my Clear WiMax 4G connection to devices that did not support the USB modem I purchased. The USB modem works great for my Windows laptop, but did not work for my older Mac, Wii or Netflix enabled Blu Ray player.
I thought about getting the router directly from Clear, but the device they offer had features I didn't need or want to pay for most notably the ability to run on batteries.

I eventually settled on the CradlePoint MBR 900 because:
It supports the Clear WiMax USB 4G modem
It supports wired connections, which is what I needed for my BluRay player for Netflix
It supports 802.X wireless connections which is what I needed for the Wii and older Mac
It has the needed security features (authentication and encryption

I received the device about a week after ordering it. It was easy to set up with one major issue, configuring the device for Clear WiMax 4G, which required a call to their support staff to resolve.

See the post here on how to resolve this:

I purchased a D-Link dual band DIR-825 router for $180 that is now collecting dust because it just didn't work with all my wireless devices, their tech support is horrible the firmware updates don't addresss the problems and taking control of my laptop a tech from one of my wireless devices was still not able to forward ports etc... he couldn't believe what a piece of garbage the D-Link was... anyway, now to the Cradlepoint MBR 900. In minutes it was up and running. I was easily able to navigate and set up everything I needed on my own as I have always been able to do prior to the D-link waste of money. I have an "N" band wireless laptop, a "G" band wireless laptop, a VOIP phone, a wi-fi Blackberry, a GE Simon 3 wireless internet home alarm system, ROKU for Netflix and a 3G Verizon aircard backup failover/back-up protection all plugged into the Cradlepoint MBR 900 all working with ease. Setting security on this router was a few minute breeze! Cradlepoint MRR900 also has a screen to "reserve" a DHCP device which I needed for my home alarm system. That took 3 seconds to do by myself and everything is working pefectly! I would have paid $350 for this. Thanks to Amazons great prices and Cradlepoint making the very best routers available in the world I would have to say this has been my best purchase in a VERY long time! Thank you Cradlepoint for restoring order to my life! I love the fact that as soon as my cable broadband service goes out that my Cradlepoint router quickly turns on my Verizon aircard to restore internet service to my home alarm system and all my other devices in my home. The second my cable broadband is back up the Cradlepoint turns off my Verizon aircard so it only uses time from the aircard when it is needed saving my aircard minutes.Read more ›

I love this thing. It actually increased my signal strength. It could have a little more documentation but, all in all, it was easy to set up. It worked with little input from me. I had a minor problem and that's where a troubleshooting guide could have been helpful. Turns out, it was my equipment causing the problem.

The built-in menus are easy to follow and are complete. I really like the option of "On Demand" operation. I plug in my USB760 from Verizon and the 900 connects without any action on my part. I don't have to invoke the Verizon Manager software on any of my PC's to access the Internet. You'll have to insert the Modem into a stand alone PC from time to time to view your usage data. That information is not available when the Modem is plugged into this Router.

After 5 minutes, an adjustment you set, the connection shuts down until a request is made to go on the net. The unit then reconnects and you are surfing again. I don't have to worry about exceeding my current 5 GB data limit because I forgot to shut down the Modem.

I'm not using the WiFi but hardwire connections for my local network. When first turned on, all my PC's were connected via the WiFi. This unit has a slide switch on the rear panel which enables or disables the WiFi option. Really easy to change. No need to log-on and do the changeover via menu selection.

I bought this unit for another reason and that was the response I received from Cradlepoint. I was very impressed with the time and effort involved in responding to my question. The answer was not a "Canned" response and addressed my concerns perfectly.

I haven't used nor do I know what this unit is fully capable of doing but I'm very pleased with my purchase.
