Cradlepoint Releases Firmware 1.8.1 for CTR500/MBR/CBA Routers, Solves UML290/VL600 Issues

Firmware 1.8.1 provides support for the Verizon Pantech UML290 (left) and LG VL600 (right) modems

Last week, Cradlepoint released firmware version 1.8.0 for the MBR1200, MBR1000, MBR900, CTR500, CBA250, CBA750, and MBR800 routers, but while it promised support for Verizon's LTE modems, unfortunately many users experienced problems.

Luckily, Cradlepoint has responded quickly and has released firmware version 1.8.1, which solves the problems and allows the UML290 and VL600 modems to be used in the CTR500/MBR/CBA routers without issue! This latest version fixed the following problems:

  •  1.8.0 Pantech UML290/LG VL600 3G Connectivity Issue (no connect/frequent disconnect)
  •  1.8.0 Pantech UML290/LG VL600 LTE mode general performance improvements
  •  1.8.0 Pantech UML290/LG VL600 LTE mode Lost IP Lease recovery
  •  1.8.0 Pantech UML290/LG VL600 non-default DNS Server support improvement
  •  1.8.0 Pantech UML290 Signal Strength display update

As an added bonus, Cradlepoint also added a feature that allows LTE uses to select which mode they're using their modem in - with firmware 1.8.1, VL600/UML290 users do NOT have to run the Pantech Utility to lock their modems into 3G or 4G mode before using it a router!
