Summary: Fantastic failover router. Using mine with an ATT Beam broadband usb modem as well as WiFi as WAN. Have had zero issues and I'm pleased with the firmware capabilities at 5.2x version. Cradlepoint has decided to start charging 40 a year for 5.3 firmware and above, this cost primarily to support adding/testing new broadband modems as the carriers release them. However the 5.2.x firmware supports virtually all the modems available as of this review and it works great.
Ok product. Terrible support. They stopped firmware updates for people who do not pay for support.

Summary: I bought this router less than a year ago. I bought it because of it's ability to incorporate 4G as a WAN connection. It does the job. However, some of the features are disabled and require extra money to enable. Now the company is trying to reach into my pocket for firmware updates. As of December 2014 you now have to have paid support in order to obtain any firmware updates. The support is terrible. Don't expect any help unless you pay. I have not paid yet.
Summary: I purchased this device over a year ago. I installed firmware updates monthly. After the 5.2.4 update I started getting lockup issues. I checked again and there was a 5.3.0 update but it would not install. I contacted Cradlepoint and they informed me that i needed to pay for access to download the firmware that would fix the issue.
Summary: 1. Not simultaneous dual band..you pick 5ghz or 2.4 but not both..a sixty dollar home router will do both. Wireless performance wasn't great but not awful either. I turned off the wifi and use a $60 "extra" router to do both 2. Terrible management interface. Hard to find things. Some of the windows are drawn so poorly you have to drag the box in their interface to expand it to show all the options. This is not intuitive and took a long time to figure out. 3.
