Nexaira Business Class II (BC2) 3G/4G Router

August 18, 2010

We are pleased to announce the addition of the NexAira BC2 enterprise router to the lineup of mobile broadband routers at 3Gstore! Like other mobile broadband routers, the BC2 allows you to share a 3G or 4G connection with multiple computers/devices, but it does much more than just that. The linux-based BC2 is specifically developed for enterprise and small business use, and includes a variety of advanced features that set it apart from any other mobile broadband router, including:

  • Failover with minimal downtime: NexAira’s “failover with anti-flap” feature allows the router to switch between a primary connection and a backup connection in under 10 seconds!
  • Xtreme Speed Optimization: The BC2’s optimization feature allows you to get the most out of your internet connection.
  • Status monitoring: The BC2 provides IT administrators with remote web administration, remote SSH access, and an SNMP server, as well as the option to automatically email multiple administrators for emergency events such as a connection failing.
  • Minimal Reboots: The BC2 rarely requires a full reboot when changing various settings on the router (on other routers, you have to reboot your equipment every time you make a change to one of the settings). This feature alone can save large corporations time & money as your entire workforce won’t be without local network and internet connectivity for several minutes because you had to change a few settings on your network!
  • QOS: Allows you to prioritize certain devices, applications, or ports on the network, so that your most important services receive priority bandwidth over any other users on the network.

Other features on the BC2 include:

You can learn more about all of the features the BC2 offers and how it might benefit your business or home office in our review: NexAira BC2 Hands-On Review

The NexAira BC2 is now available at 3Gstore for $189.99 (MSRP $209.99). Save an additional $20 if you’re also signing up for a Sprint, Verizon, or CLEAR 2-year contract!

All routers purchased from 3Gstore include our exclusive support CD as well as our esteemed technical support.

CradlePoint Firmware 1.6.12 for MBR1200 Adds Support for New Devices and Bug Fixes

March 30, 2010

CradlePoint Firmware 1.6.12 for MBR1200 Adds Support for New Devices and Bug Fixes

Firmware 1.6.12 allows you to use your U301 in an MBR1200!

CradlePoint has released Firmware Version 1.6.12 that provides the MBR1200 with official support for the new Sprint 3G/4G U301 modem, as well as support for other modems and long-awaited fixes for stability and bugs.

After last month’s firmware updates for the PHS300/CTR500/MBR1000/MBR900, the MBR1200 was Cradlepoint’s only 4G-capable router that was not compatible with Sprint’s 3G/4G U301. With this firmware update, U301 users can now use their modem with the MBR1200, too!

In addition to adding support for the U301, firmware 1.6.12 also adds support for the following devices:

  • Pantech UMW190 for Verizon
  • Pantech UM185 for Cricket
  • Sierra Wireless 305 USB (AKA “Lightning”) for AT&T
  • Sierra Wireless 306 USB for AT&T and Telus
  • Ubee PXU1900 for CLEAR
  • ZTE MF668 for Rogers
  • ZTE MF637 for T-Mobile
  • Option GE442 for T-Mobile
  • Additional newly-added international devices can be viewed in the release notes (PDF)

This latest firmware version also provides fixes for a few bugs:

  • WiFi Multimedia (WMM) problem, which prevented iPod Touch and iPhone users from connecting to the MBR1200
  • Blackberry Bold incompatibility issue
  • Blackberry Curve incompatibility issue
  • Blackberry Storm OS 5.0 incompatibility issues
  • Fixes to make WiMAX (4G) connection more reliable
  • U300 reset issue

Finally, firmware 1.6.12 added a couple new features:

  • “Agressive Modem Reset” causes the router to attempt various reset techniques to attempt to re-establish connection if the modem becomes unresponsive
  • “4G auto-reconnect feature” allows you to configure whether you want to connect to 3G or 4G based on various conditions
  • “Make-before-Break”is a nice feature for dual-mode 3G/4G modem users – if you’re connected to 3G and 4G becomes available, the router will connect to 4G before breaking the 3G connection

For full details on what this firmware release provides, view the release notes (PDF)

Important note about upgrading your MBR1200 to firmware version 1.6.12: Due to a bug in the 1.6.3 firmware (the version installed on all current MBR1200’s by default), firmware upgrades must be done by using the automatic firmware upgrade option within the router’s web administration page (an active internet connection is required) – you cannot upgrade the firmware by saving the file to your computer and then browsing for it. For those ordering the MBR1200 from, we can upgrade the firmware for you before shipping your router for a $15 fee.

If you plan to upgrade the firmware yourself, check out this article that demonstrates how to perform the upgrade from 1.6.3 to 1.6.12: MBR1200 Firmware Upgrade Issues

Sprint 4G / CLEAR Now In Houston

March 29, 2010

HOUSTON, Mar 29, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) –Blasting into Texas at lightning speed, Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced the launch of 4G in the Lone Star state’s biggest city: Houston. The next generation of wireless, also known as 4G, provides fast mobile downloads, streaming video and Web browsing at turbo-speed and delivers downloads that are faster than any wireless broadband service currently being offered by AT&T, Verizon or T-Mobile.

With today’s launch, Sprint makes Texas the “biggest 4G state” in terms of the number of people who have access to the Sprint mobile network. In addition to Houston, the 4G network is currently operating in Abilene, Amarillo, Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Fort Worth, Killeen/Temple, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, San Antonio, Waco and Wichita Falls. Nationwide, Sprint boasts 28 markets that have 4G capability today.

Unlike competitors who are running high-speed mobile broadband trials in laboratories, Sprint is the first national wireless carrier to launch 4G technology. Sprint delivers 4G to consumers and businesses, and Sprint’s 4G powered products, such as Overdrive(TM) 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot, USB Modem and USB Mobile Broadband, make any online experience better by enabling users to stream video, download files and browse the Web at download speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G1.

Texans will be able to enjoy the capabilities of the recently announced HTC EVO 4G – the world’s first 3G/4G Android phone (available later in 2010). The HTC EVO 4G provides a superior and robust multimedia experience. It is a hotspot and a phone, making it possible to download music, pictures, videos in seconds – not minutes – and watch streaming video on-the-go.
