Your USB Modem or Phone Does Not Work With the Router
1)
If your USB data modem or phone is not working with the router, check the list of supported
devices to ensure you are using a supported device and carrier.
The device you’re using
must be supported on the carrier network providing your cellular service or it’s considered
an unsupported device, even if it is supported on another carrier’s network.
CradlePoint’s supported device list changes regularly.
We update our supported device list
after a device is certified and approved.
If the device you have is NOT on the list, that means
we do not support it at this time.
The SUPPORTED DEVICE list can be found at:
cradlepoint.com/support/ctr350
2) Sometimes a USB data modem needs to be updated or have other configurations set correctly
in order to make a connection through the router.
If your USB Modem has not been updated
recently, it is recommended that you do so if it is having trouble connecting to the CTR350.
Simply insert your USB data modem into your PC and using the software provided by your
cellular carrier, access the Internet.
Follow the directions provided to complete the update.
Once you have updated your USB data modem, reconnect the cellular device to your
CradlePoint router and connect to the Internet.
If, after following the above directions, you are still unable to access the Internet,
contact CradlePoint Technical Support for further assistance.
You are Connected to the Router but Cannot Connect to the Internet
The status LEDs of your router will give you an indication whether or not a proper connection is
being made.
See the LED STATUS definitions below:
If the USB Data Modem LED is not illuminated, your modem is not connected and online. You may
need to update firmware. Refer to “Your USB Modem or Phone Does Not Work With The Router.”
If, after updating, you are still not online, call CradlePoint Technical Support for further assistance.
