Cradlepoint Firmware 2.5.3 for CTR350/PHS300 Now Available

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)
