CradlePoint MBR1400 WiFi Bridge Mode






3Gstore.com moved last week into a larger warehouse (double the space) and we have been setting things up.  We ran into a problem.  A specific location was pretty far away from our main network, BUT needed internet access.  We love eating our own dog food, so we looked for the perfect solution.  We could have used any router that supports WiFi as WAN to grab the 3Gstore wireless network, but that wouldn't work for us, because we have a printer in the remote location and we need everyone to be able to access it.  Luckily, CradlePoint recently came out with a new firmware upgrade that added support for a new feature called "WiFi Bridge Mode" for the MBR1400.  This allows the CradlePoint router to access the other network via WiFI BUT all devices are on the same network - this allows us to printer to any printer from anywhere.

We are putting together a tip sheet on exactly how to make this work and we will make that available to anyone that purchases a MBR1400 from us.
