Cradlepoint CTR500 & MBR1000 Routers

CradlePoint has released Firmware Version 1.4 that provides official support for Alltel's UM175 & EC228 as well as AT&T's Sierra Compass 885 Mercury USB modems.

Other new features added in this release:

  • Ability to customize the page a user first sees when they try to access the internet through the router (aka 'Bounce Page).

  • A new "Modem" tab has been added between Advanced and Tools tabs. The Modem tab contains info about the modem, modem settings, GPS info, and the ability to updated modems that can be updated within router.
  • Menu items/options within each main tab are now alphabetized (except for Basic - Wizard)
