CradlePoint has released Firmware Version 1.7.0 that provides the MBR1200, MBR1000, MBR900, CTR500, CBA250, and CBA750 with official support more modems (including the AT&T Velocity and two T-Mobile devices), the ability for more modems to be activated within the router, and some new features.

This latest firmware version also provides a few new features:

  • Added ability to force 3G or 4G for dual mode WIMAX modems.
  • Added "allow remember me" check box to the tools->User login page. Allows administrator to disable the Remember Me check box so users are forced to enter their passwords. This is useful for people using the product as a public hotspot.
  • Connection verify (enabled on the Modem->Settings page) now supports WIMAX modems.
  • Added ability for the CBA250 and CBA750 to disable config/pass thru switch and force the mode through GUI

Firmware 1.7.0 also added the ability to activate or update PRL for a few new modems (read more about this feature in Tip of the Week #20):

  • Sprint Sierra 598U
  • Sprint Novatel Merlin C777
  • Sprint Sierra Aircard 402

Finally, firmware 1.7.0 has fixed the following bugs:

  • Modified Aggressive Modem Reset to be more sensitive to environmental conditions such as when carriers automatically disconnect modems at a set time of day or after they have been attached and idle for a certain amount of time.
  • No longer uses a 2nd IP address for DNS server when using DNS relay. Previously the router would use and (by default) as the DNS relay addresses. Now it only uses Using the address was causing problems for some customers.
