CradlePoint CTR350/PHS300 2.4.2 Firmware Adds Support for MiFi 2200

CradlePoint has released Firmware Version 2.4.2 that provides both the CTR350 and the PHS300 with official support for both the Verizon and Sprint versions of the popular MIFI 2200.

The MiFi is the hottest thing in mobile broadband, but it has serious limitations that have made it unattractive to some 'hard-core' users who need more versatility out of a router in a home or office setting. The MiFi's limited WiFi range, restrictions to five wireless clients, and lack of ethernet connections are all very annoying detractions.

With the introduction of Firmware 2.4.2, many of the MiFi's shortcomings can now be overcome by tethering the MiFi to a CTR350 or PHS300! While attached to either Cradlepoint router:

  • more than five WiFi clients can be connected at greater distance to/from the router;
  • ethernet connections can be established (CTR350 only);
  • the MiFi's internal battery is being charged.

Tethering the MiFi to a CTR350 or PHS300 improves WiFi range as much as three times over that of the MiFi alone. For even more WiFi range or more ethernet ports, firmware 1.6 for MBR1000 also provides MiFi support.

In addition to providing support for the MiFi, firmware 2.4.2 provides a fix for a specific blackberry issue -- additional information can be found in the official Cradlepoint release notes PDF for firmware 2.4.2


For those ordering the CTR350 or PHS300 from 3Gstore.com, starting 07/28/09, we will automatically include a CD that has the latest firmware.  You can also order your CTR350 or PHS300 with latest firmware already installed and tested.
