I'd been researching routers for my USB Sprintpcs 595U Sierra Wireless Mobile Broadband Modem for almost two (2) years and came across the Cradlepoint Mobile Broadband Router (MBR) series at that time. I also watched the prices and compared their series to other brands. Finally tired of switching the modem from one computer to the other, it was time to make a decision, which for me is the Cradlepoint MBR800. I didn't want the wireless router but just the ethernet connected model. It arrived early, in absolutely pristine new condition in OEM packaging. It works perfectly once I configured my Toshiba Satellite P505D series laptop to it.
This is what I had to do: goto INTERNET OPTIONS from Control Panel or INTERNET EXPLORER >CONNECTIONS Tab >Select "NEVER DIAL A CONNECTION" >then click on LAN SETTINGS >select AUTOMATICALLY DETECT SETTINGS >OK >APPLY >OK. Internet access was complete and works wonderfully. I presently have four (4) computers connected (the router has four (4) Ethernet ports) and they, individually, get the full bandwidth of the port.
I really should have purchased the MBR800 sooner and plan on getting one of the Cradlepoint Wireless MBR soon. All in all, a wonderful product, excellent price and outstanding performance ( never had a problem with it). Also, if I may, the router options are thorough and user friendly. One note of caution: it's best to leave configurations at default if you don't know what the option is or does.
Thank you for allowing me to present my opinion on this router.

Have this unit set between my wifi router and my cable modem to use it as failover device when cable internet goes down. It run on a UPS in case of power outage. Great affordable redundancy protection for my home security system.

Needed it in a pinch but the seller that sent it to me did not test it. It was bad. The seller refunded me.

This is an older router. I like cradlepoint but the fact that cell devices do not have any good linux support any more makes me hate them.

I use mifi devices and WRT54GL to create ethernet bridges.
