Site to Site VPN For MBR1200 - We Got A Tip Sheet For That


3Gstore.com has just published another of their helpful tipsheets. This latest tipsheet will be an incredibly useful tool for those who have recently purchased CradlePoint's newest router, the MBR1200. The MBR1200 has a unique ability among CradlePoint's routers, the ability to create a Site to Site VPN connection, to link two networks together. The application sounds simple enough, but for anyone who is not a networking guru, setup can be less than friendly. 3Gstore realizes this and has put together a Tipsheet on the exact steps to follow to initiate the connection. To receive your copy of the tipsheet, send an email to support@3gstore.com along with your invoice number for your MBR1200 that was purchased from 3Gstore.com and we will be happy to email it to you.

The dog ate my Cradlepoint!


Just when you lost hope, there are no honest and trustworthy people out there. Well, 3gstore has a story for you. The other day we received a call from a teacher that had ordered a cradlepoint mbr1000 router. One of 3gstore’s best selling items. Now this teacher has heard her share of excuses... For example, "burglars stole my report at gun point" or “my dog ate my homework.” This teacher had no idea what she was going to experience for herself, when she simply placed an on-line order from 3GStore.com.

Upon arriving home, our customer noticed several pieces of packaging on her front lawn. She continued to proceed to the back door where she found more evidence of a package by 3Gstore.

Well, similar to her students when our customer contacted us, she uttered the following words, “Ummmmm, your never going to believe this but ….I think a dog ate my CradlePoint!”

You see, Lucky next door decided to tear into a brand new MBR1000 router. He must have mistaken it for a juicy T-Bone Steak. 3Gstore technicians feel it is more in a class of a filet Mignon, but Lucky didn’t care!

Mmmmm…….. plastic antennas and an AC power adapter, Mmmmmm I just love getting myself tangled up in these wires.

We were very upset to hear this story, so we first called Fedex. They wouldn’t let us file a claim, so we decided to call our friends at Cradlepoint. Did you know were Platinum Partners?

They hear the story and offer to send the customer a FREE router. There are two morals of this story, one, there are good people out there and two, when in hostile environments ask for signature required!

Cradlepoint MBR1200 Review on EVDOinfo


Cradlepoint's latest edition to their lineup of 3G/4G mobile broadband routers, the MBR1200, is now available from 3Gstore, and the review is live at EVDOinfo!

The MBR1200 features five ports for cellular modems (three USB, one ExpressCard slot, and one PCMCIA card slot), more than any other Cradlepoint router, and also features wireless "N" for a wide WiFi range, great VPN functionality, and a built-in four-port ethernet switch that offers not just 10/100 speeds, but also 1000mbp/s LAN connectivity (a.k.a. "gigabit ethernet"). It is arguably the MOST versatile a 3G/4G cellular router on the market today!
