New Single Outlet Remote Power Switch Now Available at 3Gstore.com  

ezoutlet.jpg

The Remote Power IP Switches at 3Gstore have become very popular products for a wide range of our customers. These provide users an easy way to automatically reset and also manually control power for modems, routers, cameras or any other network attached devices, as well as things as simple as a light or a fan. Both the 2 Outlet and 1 Outlet models have even been within the top 3 of our top 10 products sold annually, the last 3 years running. Recently, the 1 Outlet model, ezOutlet (aka EZ-11B), was discontinued and replaced with the ezOutlet2 (aka EZ-22B). We’re excited about this updated model as it still provides the same functionality of the original ezOutlet, but adds additional methods for remote access.

One major difference is that ezOutlet2 uses a new mobile application called ezDevice (available for Android or iOS devices). The manufacturer has also created a cloud management website for users to log into if using a mobile device is not ideal. This website, https://cloud4uis.com, gives the user more flexibility with management in that you can now provide the login to multiple users that can then access from anywhere in the world.

When you receive your ezOutlet2, setup and configuration should normally take under 10 minutes. Just create yourself a login for the app and Cloud4UIS site (same login credentials are used) and follow the setup guide for instructions (a quick start guide is also included from the manufacturer). Those who have familiarity with the original ezOutlet will see that the configuration options are the same. Firmware updates have not changed either, so if you plan on only using the website to access your device, be aware that you will still need the mobile app to perform firmware upgrades.

If you have trouble with your modem, router or other network attached devices that require a power reset to fix, be sure to check out the 3Gstore Remote Power IP Switches today!

Spectre & Meltdown NOT Impacting Cradlepoint Routers

cradlepoint logo


Cradlepoint released a statement today alerting users that neither of the vulnerabilities reported on January 3rd are affecting Cradlepoint routers.

The first vulnerability, called Meltdown, affects only Intel CPU's and can be fixed with an operating system patch. The second, called Spectre, affects CPU's from AMD and ARM. It requires a CPU design change and cannot be fixed in software. Cradlepoint router owners do NOT need to worry about these vulnerabilities impacting their hardware.

Additionally, Cradlepoint's primary cloud provider has patched their servers to mitigate potential effects to NetCloud Manager (NCM) and NetCloud Perimeter (NCP).

Peplink Security Advisory: Spectre & Meltdown 

This morning, Peplink released a security advisory regarding CPU architecture flaws that are affecting the following products: Balance with MediaFast 200, MediaFast 500 and MediaFast 750.

Details of these flaws were reported on January 3rd, 2018 by a number of security researchers. This information can be accessed at: https://spectreattack.com or https://meltdownattack.com

Per their statement, the discovered security flaws are caused by “speculative execution”, a technique used by most modern processors to optimize performance. These flaws could lead to disclosure of sensitive data stored in the privileged memory (which is normally allocated to privileged processes or the operating system kernel) to a malicious party. The reported flaws were later acknowledged by respective CPU vendors in official statements.

The Peplink team has evaluated all of their products and online services to assess the impact of this vulnerability. They can confirm the aforementioned products are the ONLY ones affected and a patch to fix the vulnerabilities will be released within firmware 7.1.0. In the meantime, their temporary solution is to switch off Docker and ContentHub functionality on the affected devices.

They have also included the following FAQ on this security advisory:

Malicious Code

Most of our products are closed systems that do not allow customers to run custom code on the device - therefore most products are not vulnerable.

In order to exploit the vulnerabilities, an attacker must be able to locally run the code on an affected device. Device administrators of affected devices are recommended to review access rights of all parties with admin privileges until the vulnerability is patched.

Performance Impact

Performance impact (if any) on MediaFast Series will be shared after the firmware update release. We expect negligible impact on performance. Learn more in the following Security Blog: https://security.googleblog.com/2018/01/more-details-about-mitigations-for-cpu_4.html1

FusionHub and InControl2 Virtual Appliance on AWS, GCE and Azure

According to official statements from Amazon, Google and Microsoft, AWS, GCE and Azure platforms have already been successfully patched.

If you are using services of other cloud platform vendors, make sure their platforms are successfully patched.

Private Virtual Machines (VMware, Citrix XenServer, Oracle VirtualBox and Microsoft Hyper-V)

Make sure you are using the latest versions of hypervisor software (that include fixes to the above vulnerabilities) in your deployments.

Further Updates

This advisory may be updated if any additional information regarding the above vulnerabilities becomes available.

2017 Top Products at 3Gstore

2017 has drawn to a close, and it’s time for our annual round-up of the top products at 3Gstore! The scoring of our top products comes from a combination of their popularity as well as the number of customer reviews they received and the average rating customers gave the product. Many of this year's winners, like the IP Switch (both versions) and Pepwave Max BR1 Classic are perennial favorites and have appeared on our "best of" lists for years. Others, like the Pepwave Max BR1 Mini and Netcomm NWL-25 are new to the list for 2017, thanks to their affordability, ease of use, and reliability. Congratulations to all of the manufacturers of our 2017 top products!

If you ordered any of these products (or any others!) from 3Gstore, don’t forget that you can log in at 3Gstore.com and write a review of your own. You’ll help other customers interested in the product and you’ll automatically be entered into our monthly restaurant.com drawing (every month we randomly select one customer review — good or bad — and the writer gets a $25 restaurant.com gift code!).

Without further ado, here are the Top 10 3Gstore Products of 2017:

Dual Outlet Remote Power IP Switch

Allows you to remotely monitor and reboot your equipment

4 star ratings

“This switch is probably the best thing since apple pie. I would lose connection to my camera and thermostat at my beach house all the time. I am 200 miles away so it's not easy having to reset my router. This switch solved my problem. My camera and thermostat hasn't been down since and that's been over 2 months. It works so good that I bought another one for my main house. Guess I'm getting lazy. Thank you 3Gstore."

“Absolutely awesome product! Saves a tremendous amount of time and headache not having to travel to a remote site now to power cycle wireless equipment to bring it back online.”


“Easy to set up. Does what it says on the box. Thanks to my ISP (Rogers) I didn't have long to wait until it proved that it actually worked. I noticed my internet connections getting steadily worse one evening. Was going to check it out, but it was dinner time. By the time dinner was over and dishes done the internet connection was good. Checked the 3GStore Remote Power Switch logs - lo and behold - it had rebooted my cable modem. Wish I had got one of these years ago.”

Pepwave Max BR1 Mini with LTE

max br1 mini

Affordable router with embedded LTE for home, travel, and small business

5 star ratings
"I've had the BR1 Mini for about a month and I love this little router. Mainly because I am not computer literate and I didn't have to jump through hoops with firmware updates and all that stuff to get started. I simply put the sim card in it,. plugged it into the wall,. put the password in and it took off. Its built rugged and its worth every penny. Thanks 3GStore!"

“The MAX BR1 features, setup and performance so far are precisely as described in the 3GPepwave literature. The transactions with 3G were similarly crisp without the slightest hiccup. The pre-sales technical support team at 3G were great. Free competent technical support prior to sale, what a concept! The admin tools are also as advertised, well designed, and informative. Coupled with a Wilson antenna, BR1 the delivers 40-50Mbps of LTE signal, so much better than our DSL not-so-broadband. Great company, great product.”

"For years the only option I have had for home internet has been DSL. Top bandwidth has been limited by the lines that feed our township road with a max speed around 2.5Mbps. Decided to try my cellular unlimited plan with a router and a usb modem. This had been nothing but a headache for months to get to work properly... Started researching for an integrated router and chose the Max BR1 Mini. So far this thing has lived up to its expectations. Setting it up was simple...This thing simply does exactly what it was designed to do."

Single Outlet Remote Power IP Switch

Allows you to remotely monitor and reboot your equipment

4 star ratings
“Easy to set up & thus far a valuable tool to have when your fancy router cuts off! I recommend this product highly."

"Does the job with simplicity. Thank you!"

"The ezOutlet remote power switch is terrific. It solved the problem of remote servers requiring occasional power cycles when conditions force them into a hibernated state. The ezOutlet regularly pings the server on the local area network, so when it loses the ping, it cycles the power. It's a life-saver, because I don't have to physically be at the remote site to power cycle computer servers anymore. The ezOutlet does it automatically or I can do it from my phone or computer. I got the single outlet, because I needed the Android phone app (which works perfectly). Also, the 3G Store's technical help was terrific! I'd highly recommend them."

Pepwave Surf SOHO MK3 Router

pepwave surf soho

Easy-to-use, feature-rich 3G/4G router for home and travel

5 star ratings
“We live out in the country and the best choice for Internet is an AT&T Unite Explore hotspot. The Pepwave router was very easy to configure and connects to the hotspot via USB. It does an excellent job of keeping the hotspot providing Internet and has decent built in Wi-Fi as well. It has a bunch of advanced features if you need them but toying with them wasn't required for my configuration."

“Used 2 Pepwave Surf SOHO MK3 Routers and a Netgear 340U AirCard to easily create a VPN between my home network and remote location. This allowed me to overcome the dynamic IP addressing associated with the 4G/LTE wireless internet access. Extremely easy to set up and has worked as hoped. Lots of management options with the Surf SOHO that allows precise control of Router behavior.”

"[Our company] has been supplying customers with Peplink products now for several years. Since this brand was introduced, it has changed the way we support our customers. Now with the SOHO and wifi capability, customers love them even more."

Pepwave Max BR1 Classic with North America LTE

max br1

Full-featured small business router with embedded LTE modem

4 star ratings
“The pepwave has been a life saver as we do radio broadcasts all over a major city and can't always get a dedicated line installed in time and can't always rely on regular cell signal. The RJ45 jacks make it easily compatible with ubiquiti gear unlike usual aircards or jetpacks, and dual sim rollover keeps us with the best signal available."

“Super simple, get up and go, Installing on a boat, easy setup”

"My application is in a large class A motorhome. I previously used a Verizon Jetpack, a Pepwave Wifi, and a Cradlepoint router. It worked but was certainly a jury-rig. When my Jetpack died I contacted the 3Gstore and they suggested this product to replace all three of the above components and complement it with the matching through the roof antenna. What a fantastic product. Now, just by sliding an icon, I can select/disable Cellular or WiFi connections depending on my situation. Thus I can use campground WiFi if its good or revert to cellular if it is too slow or not available or for security reasons. The cellular is great but I use the campground WiFi if available to keep my data usage down. I love it."

Cradlepoint MBR1200B

Powerful home/small office router with load balancing and WiFi-as-WAN

5 star ratings
“This is the third Cradlepoint router I have purchased from the 3G Store. Not only is the shipping expedient, and the service unbeatable , my MBR1200B out of the box, had me online in less than 5 minutes!! I love my MBR1200B and without a doubt, 3G Store stands behind with the best customer service I have ever had. ”

“Great router for cell cards.”

"I use this modem router on my ranch. The firmware is way ahead of the old phs900 modem/router. It was a snap to setup and join other devices to. Even though it does not have external antennaes, it has a pretty decent broadcast range."

Travel router for USB modems and WiFi as WAN

“I bought the Pepwave for its Wi-Fi as WAN feature, and it really works! An excellent little router.”

"Ease of setup is key to this product."

“Does a great job. Takes up little space and can be placed anywhere in the house. Provides a secure internet connection."

"What I've been looking for. Being able to use a hotspot with my wired networks makes ISP outages a non issue now. Immediate backup is critical for small airlines."

"Turn my Verizon jetpack MIfI6620L into a super router. I now can connect to jetpack anywhere in my house. This thing is great, if [it] broke tomorrow I would buy another one."

Plug and play point-to-point system to link WiFi up to 1 mile

5 star ratings

“We needed to install some video camera's across the street in our auxiliary building. we installed it on the roof with unobstructed views approximately 400 ft apart. we have 4 poe video cameras and an access point running, the access point doesn't have much traffic at all but the video cameras are running 24/7 and it has been running flawlessly. The bridge is using about 50 mb/s out of the 300 available. we have seen zero falloff on the video screens. We have 2 PTZ camera over there and the response is immediate and quick. I could not recommend any more. This is a very inexpensive simple solution to connecting remote facilities together.”

"Awesome product. Will continue to buy everything I need this solution. (Installer at a security/cctv company)."

“Works and seems dependable (in use for a few month now for remote SCADA type system)."

HiBoost Signal Boosters Now Available At 3Gstore

hiboostlogo.png

At 3Gstore we work with a number of products to help you stay connected, and one of those tools is a cellular repeater. A cellular repeater is a signal booster meant to pickup a weak cell signal and amplify it to an area that may not have signal before, or to improve cell signal in an area to make a connection more reliable and sometimes faster. We already work with repeaters from other manufacturers, but earlier this year HiBoost reached out to us to test their new boosters. We went into our testing expecting a mediocre amplifier as we’ve seen time and time again from other manufacturers, but instead we were blown away by the performance and value of these devices during our extensive testing. Needless to say, 3Gstore has decided to carry the HiBoost line of signal boosters.

HiBoost amplifiers range from mobile amplifiers for vehicle and RV use, to residential units for the home or small office, and commercial units for up to 100,000 square feet! All consumer amplifiers come in complete kits that include the amplifier, internal and external antennas, low loss cabling, and power supplies.

The first kit is the Travel 4G LTE. The travel 4G LTE is a 50dB wide band booster that is a complete solution for a variety of vehicles. This 2G, 3G, 4G LTE booster works for voice and data across all carriers in the US. The amplifier has AGC (automatic gain control) so as the vehicle moves between different signal areas, the amplifier is always working at its maximum potential to deliver the best signal boost possible. The amplifier weighs in at just 5.5 lbs and measures in under 8 inches long for simple installation in a glove box, cabinet, or under a seat. A magnetic mount external antenna goes on the roof of the vehicle to bring the signal into the amplifier. From the amplifier a patch antenna rebroadcasts the signal into the vehicle to any cellular device in range including phones and hotspots.

The next 3 kits are the HiBoost Home kits. These are designed for the home or small office, and come in 4k, 10k, and 15k kits, each named for the maximum coverage area the amplifier can boost the signal to. Each amplifier comes with an LCD display that reads out the exterior signal on each band and the boost each band is receiving. This is a feature that is normally found on significantly more expensive amplifiers, and the inclusion on these home kits means installation is easier than ever. The amplifiers feature the same AGC for automatic tuning of each band. If you are too close to one carrier, that signal will be reduced so as not to interfere with the cell tower or to cause feedback issues indoors. The amp also has a MGC (manual gain control) of each band for fine tuning as needed, but the amp can never be manually adjusted to cause any harmful interference as a safety feature.

The Home 4K kit includes indoor and outdoor panel antennas, 2 30’ lengths of ultra low-loss cable, and power supply.

The Home 10 kit includes an external Yagi antenna, internal panel antenna, 2 30’ lengths of ultra low-loss cable, and power supply.

 

The Home 15K includes an external Yagi antenna, internal panel antenna, 2 50’ lengths of ultra low-loss cable, and power supply. The longer cables in this kit provide adequate separation between the internal and external antenna to prevent feedback.
HiBoost also has a line of commercial amplifiers for larger installations. The Commercial 20K Pro kit, as the name suggests, is for areas up to 20,000 square feet. This kit has the same antennas as the home 15k, but adds longer cables yet again, plus a lightning surge protector.

The Commercial 30K Pro kit includes everything in the 20K Pro kit, and has a larger coverage area.

All of the amplifiers up to this point are considered consumer devices and are available for anybody to purchase and install in their home or business. There are situations where the coverage area from these kits just aren’t enough, so HiBoost has specialty amplifiers for these users. This is the HiBoost industrial line, and these are NOT consumer devices. These kits are designed solely for installation by FCC licensees and qualified installers only. You MUST have an FCC license or consent of an FCC licensee to install and operate these devices. These are special order and have a 4-5 day lead time, and are not sold in kits. Antennas and cables would be added on as needed, ideally after an on site survey.

For larger installs, the Industrial 50K is available. This has a capacity for up to 150 active users so everybody in your business can benefit from improved signal on their devices at the same time. Finally, for the largest of installs, the Industrial 100K is available. Boasting support for 200 simultaneous users, nothing else in the industry can touch the capability and capacity of the Industrial 100K.

In our extended testing, 3Gstore ran the Home 15k in our warehouse of the same size and we were beyond impressed with the results. For an amplifier kit with an MSRP of only $899.99, it outperformed a more expensive amplifier from multiple competitors. Of note, we found not only the signal boost to be higher, but the speeds we could achieve were significantly higher. Our previous amplifier capped our Verizon LTE-A speeds at just 30Mbps, but with the HiBoost Home 15K in place, we nearly doubled that speed. We were getting upwards of 60Mbps in our metal roofed, brick walled warehouse space. After testing in depth, 3Gstore had no choice but to add these impressive devices to our store. Did we mention the 3 year warranty? There is a 3 year warranty! Overall the HiBoost devices represent an impressive value and exceptional signal booster, and 3Gstore is proud to welcome HiBoost to the family.
