Cradlepoint Firmware 2.5.3 for CTR350/PHS300 adds Support for New Devices & Other Updates

phs300 and U301
Firmware 2.5.3 provides support for the new Sierra 250U 3G/4G modem (4G only works with the PHS300 - not the CTR350)

CradlePoint has released Firmware Version 2.5.3 that provides the  CTR350 and PHS300 with official support more modems (including the AT&T Velocity and the new Sprint/CLEAR Sierra 250U), the ability for more modems to be activated within the router, and some bug fixes.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THIS FIRMWARE: This latest release of firmware is for both the PHS300 and CTR350, but since the CTR350 is a 3G-only router (and always will be), updates relating to 4G devices or 4G functionality apply ONLY to the PHS300.

Firmware 2.5.3 adds support for the following devices:
  • Sierra Wireless 250U 3G/4G (CLEAR/Sprint) - 3G only on CTR350
  • AT&T Sierra Compass 888
  • AT&T USBConnect Velocity (iCON 461)
  • T-Mobile Huawei E181 (T-Mobile webConnect USB)
  • T-Mobile Huawei E1691 (T-Mobile webConnect Jet USB)
  • Telus Huawei E182E 
  • Cellcom AxxessTel MV240 
  • Additional newly-added international devices can be viewed in the release notes (PDF)

Firmware 2.5.3 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 Novatel U760
  • Sprint Sierra 598U
  • Sprint Novatel Merlin C777
  • Sprint Sierra Aircard 402

Finally, firmware 2.5.3 has fixed the following bugs:

  • Tweaks to the Aggressive Modem Reset feature.
  • 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.

For full details on what this firmware release provides, view the release notes (PDF)

For those ordering the CTR350 or PHS300 from, starting 06/23/10, we will automatically include a CD that has the firmware version 2.5.3 on it.
