3.3 Common Problems
This section contains some of the most common issues faced by users of the CBA750B.
Please visit CradlePoint Knowledge Base at http://knowledgebase.cradlepoint.com/ for more help and answers to your
other questions.
3.3.1
You Cannot Connect to the Internet with a CradlePoint business-grade modem
Make sure that you have an active data plan and that your modem has been activated. A wireless broadband data plan
must be added to your business-grade modem. Wireless broadband data plans are available from wireless carriers such
as Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. A new line of service can be added or a data plan can be transferred from an existing
account. You will need the ESN number (or SIM/IMEI number depending on your carrier plan) from the product label on
your modem to add or transfer a line of service.
After adding a data plan to the modem, you may need to activate the modem:
1. Log in to the CBA750B administration pages (see Accessing the Administration Pages).
2. Select Internet from the top navigation bar and Modem Settings from the dropdown menu (Internet ! Modem
Settings).
3. Find and select the CradlePoint modem.
4. Click Update/Activate.
5. Click Activate in the popup.
Finally, if you have an active data plan and you have already activated your modem, you may be out of range of your
service provider. Check your signal strength in the Internet section of the Dashboard (Status ! Dashboard). If you have
a weak signal in your location, contact your service provider.
If you are still not online after activating the modem, call CradlePoint Technical Support for further assistance.

3.3.2
Your USB or ExpressCard Modem Does Not Work With the Router
•
If your USB data or ExpressCard is not working with the router, check the list of supported devices at
http://www.cradlepoint.com/modems to ensure you are using a supported device and carrier. The device you are
using must be supported on the carrier network providing your cellular service or it’s considered an unsupported
device, even if it is supported on another carrier’s network.
•
Sometimes a USB data modem needs to be updated or have other configurations set correctly in order to make a
connection through the router. If your USB Modem has not been updated recently, it is recommended that you do
so if it is having trouble connecting to the CBA750B. Insert your USB data modem into your PC and access the
Internet using the software provided by your cellular carrier. Follow the directions provided to complete the update.
Once you have updated your USB data modem, reconnect the cellular device to your CradlePoint router and
connect to the Internet.
•
If you are using a WiMAX modem, you need to set the WiMAX Realm. This can be done in the administration
pages. Log in using the hostname “cp/” or IP address “http://192.168.0.1” in your browser. Go to Internet !
Connection Manager. In the WAN Interfaces section, select your modem and click “Edit.” Select the WiMAX
Settings tab and select/input your WiMAX Realm.
•
Some wireless carriers provide more than one Access Point Name (APN) that a modem can connect to. If you wish
to specify the APN, this can be done on the administration pages. Log in using the hostname “cp/” or IP address
“http://192.168.0.1” in your browser. Go to Internet ! Connection Manager. In the WAN Interfaces section,
select your modem and click “Edit.” Select the SIM/APN Settings tab. There is an Access Point Name field: Set
the APN and click Submit. Some APN examples are isp.cingular, ecp.tmobile.com, and vpn.com. The modem
must be removed and reinserted (or the router must be rebooted) for this change to take effect.
•
If the above issues have been resolved and you can connect to the router but you cannot get Internet through it
using your modem, you may need to upgrade the router firmware. Use your computer (you may need to plug your
modem directly into your computer if you don’t have another way to access the Internet) to download the latest
firmware for the router at http://www.cradlepoint.com/firmware/CBA750B. Then log into the router administration

pages and manually upload the firmware. Go to System Settings ! System Software and click on “Manual
Firmware Upload”.
If you are still unable to access the Internet after following the above directions, contact CradlePoint Technical Support for
further assistance.

4.2 Getting Started – First Time Setup
The First Time Setup Wizard will help you configure your APN and failure check settings and change your administrator
password to something you choose.
1) Open a browser window and type “cp/” or
“192.168.0.1” into the address bar. Press
enter/return.
2) When prompted for your password, type the eight
character Default Password found on the product
label on the bottom of the CBA750B (this is also the
last 8 digits of the router’s MAC address).
3) When you log in for the first time, you will be
automatically directed to the FIRST TIME SETUP
WIZARD. (Otherwise, go to Getting Started ! First
Time Setup).
4) CradlePoint recommends that you change the
router’s ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD, which is
used to log in to the administration pages.
5) You can select your TIME ZONE from a dropdown list. (This may be necessary to properly show time in your router
log, but typically your router will automatically determine your time zone through your browser.) Click NEXT.

CRADLEPOINT CBA750B| USER MANUAL Firmware version 4.2
6) Configuring Your Access Point Name (APN):
If you are using a SIM-based modem (LTE/GSM/HSPA) with your CradlePoint router, you may need to configure the
APN before it will properly connect to your carrier. Wireless carriers offer several APNs, so check with your carrier to
confirm the appropriate one to use. Some examples include:
•
•
•
•
•
AT&T: "broadband"
T-Mobile: "epc.tmobile.com"
Rogers LTE: "lteinternet.apn"
Bell: "inet.bell.ca"
TELUS: "isp.telus.com"
You can either leave this on the Default setting or
select Manual and input a specific APN.
DON'T USE THIS APN WIZARD if you have already
configured an APN. Any specific modem settings will
not be overwritten by this generic APN setup. Leave
this setting as Default, and after finishing this Wizard
go to Internet ! Connection Manager, select your
modem, and edit the settings. The SIM PIN/APN tab
has more available settings than are provided here.
Also, if your specific modem or SIM already has
APNs programmed into it, it is easier to select these
from the Internet ! Connection Manager page.
Leave this on the Default setting.

CRADLEPOINT CBA750B| USER MANUAL Firmware version 4.2
7) Configuring Failure Check:
It is possible for a WAN interface to go down without the
router recognizing the failure. (For example: the carrier
for a cellular modem goes dormant.) Enable Failure
Check to ensure that you can get out to the Internet via
your primary WAN connection. This option is disabled
by default because it may use data unnecessarily. Use
this in combination with failover or Aggressive Reset
(Internet ! Connection Manager under Modem
Settings in the interface/rule editor).
Idle Check Interval: Set the number of seconds the router will wait between checks to see if the WAN is still available.
(Default: 30 seconds. Range: 10-3600 seconds.)
Monitor while connected: Select from the dropdown menu. (Default: Off)
•
•
Active Ping: A ping request will be sent to the Ping Target. If no data is received, the ping request will be
retried 4 times at 5-second intervals. If still no data is received, the device will be disconnected and failover will
occur. When “Active Ping” is selected, the next line gives an estimate of data usage in this form: “Active Ping
could use as much as 9.3 MB of data per month.” This amount depends on the Idle Check Interval.
Off: Once the link is established the router takes no action to verify that it is still up.
Ping IP Address: If you selected “Active Ping”, you will need to input an IP address that will respond to a ping request.
This IP address must be an address that can be reached through your WAN connection. Some ISPs/Carriers block
certain addresses, so choose an address that all of your WAN connections can use. For best results, select an
established public IP address. For example, you might ping Google Public DNS at 8.8.8.8 or Level 3 Communications at 4.2.2.2.

4.5 IP Passthrough Setup
The CBA750B’s IP passthrough function takes the IP address of the attached modem and passes it through to the LAN.
By default, the CBA750B is configured for IP passthrough – the device ships with the ROUTER/PASSTHROUGH
SWITCH set to the I position (“O” is router mode; “I” is passthrough mode). Using IP passthrough disables some of the
device’s other router functionality.
There are three methods for setting up IP passthrough:
1) The ROUTER/PASSTHROUGH SWITCH on the device itself is set to “I”.
This forces a complete IP passthrough configuration with the following settings:
•
•
•
•
Load balance is disabled; the highest priority WAN device is used.
The Routing Mode is set to IP Passthrough. (Network Settings ! Local Networks in the “Local Network
Editor” under “IP Settings”)
The Subnet Selection Mode will be set to "Automatically Create Subnet". (Network Settings ! Local
Networks in the “Local Network Editor” under “IP Settings” – this shows once IP Passthrough is set as the
Routing Mode)
If you have created secondary networks, they are disabled; only the primary LAN is enabled.
2) In the administration pages, select Getting Started ! IP Passthrough Setup. This wizard will force an IP
passthrough configuration that matches the ROUTER/PASSTHROUGH SWITCH settings shown above. Simply read
through the wizard and select Enable IP Passthrough on the second page.
3) For custom configuration, manually input IP passthrough settings in the administration pages (this is the preferred
method for network professionals). Go to Network Settings ! Local Networks for most of these changes.
Depending on your settings, you may need to go to other pages as well (e.g. you may need to disable load balancing).
Changes in the administration pages can overrule the switch setting, AND vice versa (i.e. the most recent setting changes
are implemented, regardless of method). In the administration pages you can set the device to ignore changes to the
router/passthrough switch. This option is listed in System Settings ! Administration under the “Local Management”
tab. Click on the “Disable IP Passthrough/Configuration mode switch” option.

6.1 Content Filtering
You have two main options for filtering content in a network created by your router.
1) Network WebFilter Rules: Create a list of websites that will be either disallowed or allowed. Customize the filter
settings for each network. (These rules will not block HTTPS websites.)
2) OpenDNS Content Filtering: Allows several options for filtering rules using OpenDNS, a third party service.
6.1.1
Network WebFilter Rules
Network WebFilter Rules allow you to control access from your network to external domains or websites. Rules are
assigned to a specific LAN network (or all networks). The highest priority rule will have precedence when there is a
conflict. Addresses can be added by URL/Domain name or by IP address.
Exceptions to existing rules can be created by adding another rule with higher priority. For example, if access to
espn.go.com is desired but go.com is blocked with a priority of 50, the addition of an “Allow” rule for espn.go.com with a
priority of 51 or greater will allow access.
When creating rules keep in mind that some sites use multiple domains, so each domain may need a rule added to
produce the desired behavior.
NOTE: Websites that use HTTPS will not be blocked by these rules. You will need to use OpenDNS to block HTTPS websites.

•
Assigned Network: Select either “All Networks” or one of
your LAN networks from the dropdown list.
Domain/URL/IP: Enter the Domain Name or URL (address)
of the website you wish to control access for, e.g.
www.google.com. To make sure the full domain is
blocked, enter the most inclusive domain (e.g. google.com
will effectively block www.google.com as well as
maps.google.com and images.google.com). Alternatively
you can use an IP address, e.g. 8.8.8.8, or address range
written in CIDR notation, e.g. 8.8.8.0/24.
Filter Action: Select Block or Allow.
Rule Priority: Higher number rules overrule lower number
rules.
Enabled: A rule can be enabled or disabled by selecting or
deselecting the checkbox.
Click Submit to save your rule changes.

CRADLEPOINT CBA750B | USER MANUAL Firmware version 4.2
6.1.2
Default Filter Settings
Use Default Network Filter Settings together with Network WebFilter Rules to control website access. All of your
networks are set to allow website access by default. Select a network and click Edit to change the default filter settings.
Default Action: Select from the following dropdown options:
•
•
Allow Access (default)
Block Access
When a network is set to Allow Access, it will allow access to
sites not specifically blocked in the WebFilter Rules.
When a network is set to Block Access, it will block access to
sites not specifically allowed in the WebFilter Rules.
Filter URLs by IP Address: (Default: No) Changing this option to
“Yes” will cause the router to perform a DNS lookup on URL
entries, and the IP addresses will be appended to the appropriate
block/allow list. This can have the side effect of being very strict;
sites that are hosted across many domains may need every
domain added to the list for full functionality.

6.1.3 OpenDNS
OpenDNS is a service that protects you
online by filtering websites. OpenDNS
protects you from phishing websites and
URL typos.
Enter your OpenDNS account information in
order to use your OpenDNS Content
Filtering settings.
Force All DNS Requests To Router:
Enabling this will redirect all DNS requests
from LAN clients to the router's DNS server.
This will allow the router even more control
over IP Addresses even when the client
might have their own DNS servers statically
set.
OpenDNS ISP Filter Bypass Algorithm: It is possible that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) uses the port that
OpenDNS is configured to access, port 53, which will prevent OpenDNS filtering. If OpenDNS does not appear to be
working correctly, enabling this will attempt to bypass those ports when using an OpenDNS content filtering level.

6.2 DHCP Server
DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. The built-in DHCP server automatically assigns IP addresses to
the computers and other devices on each local area network (LAN). In this section you can view a list of assigned IP
addresses and reserve IP addresses for particular devices.
Active Leases: A list of devices that have
been provided DHCP leases. The DHCP
server automatically assigns these leases.
This list will not include any devices that
have static IP addresses on the network.
Select a device and click Reserve to add
the device and its IP address to the list of
Reservations.
Reservations: This is a list of devices with
reserved IP addresses. This reservation is
almost the same as when a device has a static IP address except that the device must still request an IP address from the
router. The router will provide the device the same IP address every time. DHCP reservations are helpful for server
computers on the local network that are hosting applications such as Web and FTP. Servers on your network should
either use a static IP address or a reservation.
While you have the option to manually input the information to reserve an IP address (Hostname, Hardware Addr, IP
Addr), it is much simpler to select a device under the Active Leases section and click “Reserve.” The selected device’s
information will automatically be added under Reservations.

6.3 DNS
DNS, or Domain Name System, is a naming system that translates between domain names (www.cradlepoint.com, for
example) and Internet IP addresses (206.207.82.197). A DNS server acts as an Internet phone book, translating between
names that make sense to people and the more complex numerical identifiers. The DNS page for the CBA750B has these
distinct functions:
• DNS Settings: By default your router is set to automatically acquire DNS servers through your Internet provider
(Automatic). DNS Settings allows you to specify DNS servers of your choosing instead (Static).
• Dynamic DNS Configuration: Allows you to host a server (Web, FTP, etc.) using a domain name that you have
purchased (www.yourname.com) with your dynamically assigned IP address.
• Known Hosts Configuration: Allows you to map a name (printer, scanner, laptop, etc.) to an IP address of a
device on the network.
6.3.1
DNS Settings
You have the option to choose specific DNS servers for
your network instead of using the DNS servers assigned
by your Internet provider. The default DNS servers are
usually adequate. You may want to assign DNS servers if
the default DNS servers are performing poorly or if you
have a local DNS server on your network.
Automatic Config: Automatic or Static (default:
Automatic). Switching to “Static” enables you to set specific DNS servers in the Primary DNS and Secondary DNS fields.
Primary DNS and Secondary DNS: If you choose to specify your DNS servers, then enter the IP addresses of the
servers you want as your primary and secondary DNS servers in these fields. The DNS server settings will be prepopulated with public DNS server IP addresses. You can override the IP address with any other DNS server IP address of
your choice. For example, Google Public DNS servers have the IP addresses 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 while 4.2.2.2 and 4.2.2.3
are servers from Level 3 Communications.
Force All DNS Requests To Router: Enabling this will redirect all DNS requests from LAN clients to the router's DNS
server. This will allow the router even more control over IP addresses even when clients have their own DNS servers
statically set.

6.3.2 Dynamic DNS Configuration
The Dynamic DNS feature allows you to host a server (Web, FTP, etc.) using a domain name that you have purchased
(www.yourname.com) with your dynamically assigned IP address. Most broadband Internet Service Providers assign
dynamic (changing) IP addresses. When you use a Dynamic DNS service provider, you can enter your host name to
connect to your server, no matter what your IP address is.
Enable Dynamic DNS: Enable this option only if you
have purchased your own domain name and registered
with a Dynamic DNS service provider.
Server Type. Select a Dynamic DNS service provider
from the pull-down list:
• www.DynDNS.org
• www.DNSomatic.com
• www.ChangeIP.com
• www.NO-IP.com
• Custom Server (DynDNS clone)
Custom Server Address. Only available if you select
Custom Server from the Server Address dropdown list.
Enter your custom dynamic DNS server address here.
The server must support the Dynamic DNS protocol.
See www.dyndns.org for details. Example:
myserver.mydomain.net.
Use HTTPS: Use the more secure HTTPS protocol.
This is recommended, but could be disabled if not compatible with the server.
Host name: Enter your host name, fully qualified. For example: myhost.mydomain.net.
User name: Enter the user name or key provided by the Dynamic DNS service provider. If the Dynamic DNS provider
supplies only a key, enter that key for both the User name and Password fields.
Password: Enter the password or key provided by the Dynamic DNS service provider.

6.3.3 Advanced Dynamic DNS Settings
Update period (hours). (Default: 576) The time between periodic updates to the Dynamic DNS if your dynamic IP
address has not changed. The timeout period is entered in hours so valid values are from 1 to 8760.
Override External IP. The external IP is usually configured automatically during connection. However, in situations where
the unit is within a private network behind a firewall or router, the network's external IP address will have to be manually
configured in this field.
You may find out what your external IP address is by going to http://myip.dnsomatic.com/ in a web browser.
6.3.4
Known Hosts Configuration
The Known Hosts Configuration feature allows you to
map a name (printer, scanner, laptop, etc.) to an IP
address of a device on the network. This assigns a new
hostname that can be used to conveniently identify a
device within the network, such as an office printer.
Click Add to name a device in your network.
Fill in the following fields:
• Hostname: Choose a name that is meaningful to you. No spaces
are allowed in this field.
• IP address: The address of the device within your network.
EXAMPLE: a personal laptop with IP address 192.168.0.164 could be assigned the
name “MyLaptop”.
Since the assigned name is mapped to an IP address, the device’s IP
address should not change. To ensure that the device keeps the same IP address, go to Network Settings ! DHCP
Server and reserve the IP address for the device by selecting the device in the Active Leases list and clicking “Reserve”.

6.4 Firewall
The router automatically provides a firewall. Unless you configure the router to the contrary, the router does not respond
to unsolicited incoming requests on any port, thereby making your LAN invisible to cyber attackers.
However, some network applications cannot run with a tight firewall. Those applications need to selectively open ports in
the firewall to function correctly. The options on this page control ways of opening the firewall to address the needs of
specific types of applications.
6.4.1
Port Forwarding Rules
A port forwarding rule allows traffic from the
Internet to reach a computer on the inside of your
network. For example, a port forwarding rule might
be used to run a Web server.
Exercise caution when adding new rules as
they impact the security of your network.
Click Add to create a new port forwarding rule, or select an
existing rule and click Edit.
Add/Edit Port Forwarding Rule
•
•
•
•
Name: Name your rule.
Use Port Range: Changes the selection options to allow
you to input a range of ports (if desired).
Internet Port(s): The port number(s) as you want it
defined on the Internet. Typically these will be the same
as the local port numbers, but they do not have to be.
These numbers will be mapped to the local port numbers.
Local Computer: Select the IP address of an attached
device from the dropdown menu, or manually input the IP address of a device.

•
Local Port(s): The port number(s) that corresponds to the service (Web server, FTP, etc) on a local computer or
device. For example, you might input “80” in the Local Port(s) field to open a port for a Web server on a computer
within your network. The Internet Port(s) field could then also be 80, or you could choose another port number that
will be used across the Internet to access your Web server. If you choose a number other than 80 for the Internet
Port, connections to that number will be mapped to 80—and therefore the Web server—within your network.
Protocol: Select from the following options in the dropdown menu:
o TCP
o UDP
o TCP & UDP
Click Submit to save your completed port forwarding rule.

6.4.2
IP Filter Rules (Advanced)
An "Incoming" IP filter rule restricts remote access
to computers on your local network. "Outgoing"
filter rules prevent computers on your local
network from initiating communication to the
address range specified in the rule.
This feature is especially useful when combined with port forwarding and/or DMZ to restrict remote access to a specified
host or network range. For example, in order to host a server you might have opened ports with a port forwarding rule that
could expose your LAN to cyber attacks. With an incoming IP filter rule, you can restrict the access to your LAN to only
known devices.
•
•
•
•
•
Name: Name your rule.
Enabled: Selected by default.
Log: When checked each packet
matching this filter rule will be logged
in the System Logs.
Action: “Allow” or “Deny”
Protocol: Any, ICMP, TCP, UDP,
GRE, ESP, or SCTP.

•
IP Negation: Match on any IP
address that is NOT in the specified IP
network range.
Network IP: Optional field to specify a
matching network IP address for this
rule to match against.
Netmask: Use this to define a subnet
size this rule will match against.
Port Negation: Match on any port

that is NOT in the specified port range.
Port(s): Use for a single port or a range of ports. Fill in the left side for a single port.
Use Network IP, Netmask, and Port(s) to specify the ports and addresses for which the rule applies. You can specify a
range of ports or a single port. Similarly, the netmask can be used to define either a range of addresses (i.e.
255.255.255.0) or a single address (255.255.255.255).
If you leave these values blank, then all IP addresses and ports will be included. IP Source and IP Destination options
can be used to differentiate between the directions that packets go. You could permit packets to come from particular IP
addresses but then not allow packets to return to those addresses.
Example of an IP Filter Rule: Suppose you have opened a port in your firewall in order to run a server. Someone, Johnny, is abusing that
opening, so you would like to restrict his access. Create a rule that will deny Johnny’s IP address.
Add IP Filter Rule
•

6.4.3
DMZ: DeMilitarized Zone (Advanced)
A DMZ host is effectively not firewalled in the
sense that any computer on the Internet may
attempt to remotely access network services at the
DMZ IP address. Typical uses involve running a
public Web server or sharing files.
Input the IP Address of a single device in your
network to create a DeMilitarized Zone for that device. To ensure that the IP address of the selected device remains
consistent, go to the “Reservations” section under Network Settings ! DHCP Server and reserve the IP address for the
device.
As with port forwarding, use caution when enabling the DMZ feature as it can threaten the security of your
network. Only use DMZ as a last resort.
6.4.4
Application Gateways (Advanced)
Enabling an application gateway makes pinholes
thru the firewall. This may be required for some
applications to function, or for an application to
improve functionality or add features.
Exercise caution in enabling application
gateways as they impact the security of your
network.
Enable any of the following types of application
gateways:
•
•
•
PPTP: For virtual private network access
using Point to Point Tunneling Protocol. This
is enabled by default.
SIP: For Voice over IP using Session Initiation Protocol.
TFTP: Enables file transfer using Trivial File Transfer Protocol.

•
FTP: To allow normal mode when using File Transfer Protocol. This is not needed for passive mode. This is
enabled by default.
IRC: For Direct Client to Client (DCC) transfer when using Internet Relay Chat. You may wish to forward TCP port
113 for incoming identd (RFC 1413) requests.
6.4.5
Firewall Options (Advanced)
Anti-Spoof: Anti-Spoof checks help protect against
malicious users faking the source address in
packets they transmit in order to either hide
themselves or to impersonate someone else. Once
the user has spoofed their address they can launch
a network attack without revealing the true source of the attack or attempt to gain access to network services that are
restricted to certain addresses.
6.4.6
Remote Administration Access Control
(Advanced)
Enable Remote Administration Access Control:
Selecting this option allows you to make remote
administration tools available to only the specified
IP addresses. Access from all other IP addresses
will be blocked. This option only filters IP
addresses: you must enable Remote Management
separately (System Settings ! Administration).
The services affected by this include remote HTTP,
HTTPS, SNMP, and SSH configuration tools. This does not restrict access to LAN-based administration, i.e. devices
within your network still have administration access. The individual remote administration services can be enabled under
System Settings ! Administration --> Remote Management.

Hostname: [Default: cp (for CradlePoint)] The hostname is the DNS name associated with the router's local area network
IP address.
NOTE: You can access the router’s administration pages by typing the hostname into your browser, so if you change “cp” to another hostname,
you can access the administration pages through the new hostname.
IP Address: This is the address used by the router for local area network communication. Changes to this parameter may
require a restart to computers on this network.

Each network must have a distinct IP address. Most users will want an address from one of the following private IP
ranges:
• 10.0.0.1 - 10.255.255.1
• 172.16.0.1 - 172.31.255.1
• 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.255.1
NOTE: The final number does not have to be 1, but it is a simple, logical
convention for routers that leaves higher numbers free for other devices.
Netmask: (Default: 255.255.255.0) The netmask controls how
many IP addresses can be used in this network. The default
value allows for 254 IP addresses, which is enough in most
cases.
Routing Mode: (Default: NAT.) Each network can use a
unique routing mode to connect to the Internet and other local
networks. NAT is desirable for most configurations. Select
from the following options in the dropdown list:
• NAT (default): Network Address Translation hides
private IP addresses behind the router's IP address.
This is the simplest and most common choice for
users, because NAT does the translation work for you.
• Standard: NAT-less routing. If you select Standard,
you must separately configure your IP addresses so
that they will be publically accessible. Typically you will not select this option unless you have a specific reason to
bypass NAT.
• IP Passthrough: IP Passthrough passes the IP address given by a cellular modem (WAN) through the router to
Ethernet (LAN). You can also enable IP Passthrough with the ROUTER/PASSTHROUGH SWITCH on the device
itself or with the IP Passthrough Setup Wizard (see Getting Started ! IP Passthrough Setup).
• Disabled: Disable this network.

DHCP:
Changing settings for the DHCP server is optional. The default selections are almost always sufficient.
DHCP Server: (Default: Enabled) When the DHCP server is enabled, users of your network will be able to automatically
connect to the Internet without any special configuration. It is recommended that you leave this enabled. Disabling the
DHCP server is only recommended if you have another DHCP server on your network and it is configured properly.
Range Start and Range End: These designate the range
of values in the reserved pool of IP addresses for the
DHCP server. Values within this range will be given to any
DHCP enabled computers on your network. The default
values are almost always sufficient (default: 72 to 200, as
in 192.168.0.72 to 192.168.0.200).
Example: The CBA750B uses an IP address of 192.168.0.1 for its
primary network by default. A computer designated as a Web server
has a static IP address of 192.168.0.3. Another computer is designated
as an FTP server with a static IP address of 192.168.0.4. The starting
IP address for the DHCP server needs to be 192.168.0.5 or higher.
Lease Time: [Default: 720 minutes (12 hours)] The lease
time specifies how long DHCP-enabled computers will wait
before requesting a new DHCP lease. Smaller values are
better suited to busy environments.

•
•
Option: Select an option from the dropdown list or
manually enter the number of an option. A complete list of
options is available from IANA.
Value: Generally this field should be a string, IP address,
or numeric value. Some fields can accept both IP
addresses and hostnames – in these cases you may need
to wrap this value in quotes. For example, option 66
(Server name) requires quotes around IP addresses.
DHCP Relay: DHCP Relay communicates with a DHCP server
and acts as a proxy for DHCP broadcast messages that must be
routed to remote segments. This is accomplished by converting broadcast DHCP messages to unicast messages to
communicate between clients and servers.
DHCP Server Address: An optional DHCP server address if more than one DHCP server is located on the network. This
field is only available when DHCP Relay is enabled.

group to be used in other parts of the router configuration. For
example, this ID is referenced in the Local IP Networks configuration
to attach this group of Ethernet port group with a network

added to the “Ignored MAC Addresses” list.
You can configure the router to send an alert if a connected device has a MAC address that the router doesn’t recognize.
Go to System Settings ! Device Alerts to set up these email alerts.
Ignored MAC Addresses: This is the
list of MAC addresses that will not
produce an alert or a log entry when
they are connected to the router.
These should be MAC addresses that
you expect to be connected to the
router.
To add MAC addresses to this list,
simply select devices shown in the
MAC Address Log and click “Ignore.”
You can also add addresses
manually.
MAC Address Log: This shows the
last 64 MAC addresses that have
connected to the router, as well as
which interface was used to connect.
The time/date that is logged is the time of the first connection. The page may need to be refreshed to show the most
recent log entries.
Double-clicking on entries from this list will add them to the Ignored MAC Addresses list.

6.7 Routing
Add a new static route to the IP routing table or edit/remove an existing route.
Static routes are used in networks with more than one layer, such as when there is a network within a network so that
packet destinations are hidden behind an additional router. Adding a static route is a way of telling the router about an
additional step that packets will need to take to reach their destination.
Click Add to create a new static route.
IP/Network Address: The IP address of the target
network or host.
Netmask: The Netmask, along with the IP address, defines the network the computer belongs to and which other IP
addresses the computer can see in the same LAN. An IP address of 192.168.0.1 along with a Netmask of 255.255.255.0
defines a network with 256 available IP addresses from 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.0.255.
NOTE: 255.255.255.255 is used to signify only the host that was
entered in the IP/Network Address field.
Gateway: Specifies the next hop to be taken if this route is
used. A gateway of 0.0.0.0 implies there is no next hop,
and the IP address matched is directly connected to the
router on the interface specified: LAN or WAN.
Allow Network Access: (Default: Deselected.) Some
static routes will need an IP Filter Rule via the Firewall to
allow packets through the route without being blocked.
Selecting this option automatically creates this IP Filter
Rule. If the IP/Network Address falls outside the LAN IP
range, you probably need to select this option.

7.1 Connection Manager
The router can establish an uplink via any modems plugged into a modem port. If there is more than one modem attached
and the primary connection fails, the router will automatically attempt to bring up a new link on another device. This
feature is called failover. If Load Balance is enabled, multiple WAN devices establish a link at the same time.
7.1.1
WAN Interfaces
This is a list of the available interfaces used to access
the Internet. You can enable, stop, or start devices from
this section. By using the priority arrows (the arrows in
the boxes to the left—these show if you have more than
one available interface), you can set the interface the
router uses by default and the order that it allows
failover.
Load Balance: If this is enabled, the router will use multiple WAN interfaces to increase the data transfer throughput by
using any connected WAN interface consecutively. Selecting Load Balance will automatically start the WAN interface and
add it to the pool of WAN interfaces to use for data transfer. Turning off Load Balance for an active WAN interface may
require the user to restart a current browsing session.
Enabled: Selected by default. Deselect to disable an interface.
Click on the small box at the top of the list to select/deselect all devices for either Load Balance or Enabled.
Click on a device in the list to reveal additional information about that device and to enable configuration options.

Force NAT: Normally the LAN Route Mode
controls the use of NAT (network address
translation). When this option is selected the
router will always perform NAT when traffic is
sent out from this device.
Priority: This number controls failover and
failback order. The lower the number, the
higher the priority and the more use the
device will get. This number will change when
you move devices around with the priority
arrows in the WAN Interfaces list.
Load Balance: Select to allow this device to
be available for the Load Balance pool.
Download bandwidth: Defines the default
download bandwidth for use in Load Balance
algorithms. (Range: 128 Kb/s to 76800 Kb/s.)

Failure Check (Advanced)
If this is enabled, the router will check that the
highest priority active WAN interface can get to the
Internet even if the WAN connection is not actively
being used. If the interface goes down, the router
will switch to the next highest priority interface
available. If this is not selected, the router will still
failover to the next highest priority interface but only after the user has attempted to get out to the Internet and failed.
Idle Check Interval: The amount of time between each check. (Default: 30 seconds. Range: 10-3600 seconds.)
Monitor while connected: (Default: Off) Select from the following dropdown options:
•
•
•
•
Passive DNS (modem only): The router will take no action until data is detected that is destined for the WAN.
When this data is detected, the data will be sent and the router will check for received data for 2 seconds. If no data
is received the router behaves as described below under Active DNS.
Active DNS (modem only): A DNS request will be sent to the DNS servers. If no data is received, the DNS
request will be retried 4 times at 5-second intervals. (The first 2 requests will be directed at the Primary DNS server
and the second 2 requests will be directed at the Secondary DNS server.) If still no data is received, the device will
be disconnected and failover will occur.
Active Ping: A ping request will be sent to the Ping Target. If no data is received, the ping request will be retried 4
times at 5-second intervals. If still no data is received, the device will be disconnected and failover will occur. When
“Active Ping” is selected, the next line gives an estimate of data usage in this form: “Active Ping could use as much
as 9.3 MB of data per month.” This amount depends on the Idle Check Interval.
Off: Once the link is established the router takes no action to verify that it is still up.
Ping IP Address: If you selected “Active Ping”, you will need to input an IP address. This must be an address that can be
reached through your WAN connection (modem/Ethernet). Some ISPs/Carriers block certain addresses, so choose an
address that all of your WAN connections can use. For best results, select an established public IP address.
For example, you might ping Google Public DNS at 8.8.8.8 or Level 3 Communications at 4.2.2.2.

CRADLEPOINT CBA750B | USER MANUAL Firmware version 4.2
Failback Configuration (Advanced)
This is used to configure failback, which is the
ability to go back to a higher priority WAN interface
if it regains connection to its network.
Usage: Fail back based on the amount of data
passed over time. This is a good setting for when
you have a dual-mode EVDO/WiMAX modem and
you are going in and out of WiMAX coverage. If the
router has failed over to EVDO it will wait until you
have low data usage before bringing down the EVDO connection to check if a WiMAX connection can be made.
• High (Rate: 80 KB/s. Time Period: 30 seconds.)
• Normal (Rate: 20 KB/s. Time Period: 90 seconds.)
• Low (Rate: 10 KB/s. Time Period: 240 seconds.)
• Custom (Rate range: 1-100 KB/s. Time Period range: 10-300 seconds.)
Time: Fail back only after a set period of time. (Default: 90 seconds. Range: 10-300 seconds.) This ensures that the
higher priority interface has remained online for a set period of time before it becomes active (in case the connection is
dropping in and out, for example).
Disabled: Deactivate failback mode.
Immediate Mode: Fail back immediately whenever a higher priority interface is plugged in or when there is a priority
change. Immediate failback returns you to the use of your preferred Internet source more quickly which may have
advantages such as reducing the cost of a failover data plan, but it may cause more interruptions in your network than
Usage or Time modes.

made as needed. When this mode is not selected a connection to the Internet is always maintained.
Aggressive Reset: When Aggressive Reset is enabled
the system will attempt to maintain a good modem
connection. If the Internet has been unreachable for a
period of time a reset of the modem will occur in attempt to

7.1.5 Update/Activate a Modem
Some 3G modems can be updated and activated while plugged into the router. Updates and activation methods vary by
modem model and service provider. Possible methods are: PRL Update, Activation, and FUMO. All supported methods
will be displayed when you select your modem and click “Control”. If no methods are displayed for your device then you
will need to update and activate your device externally.
To update or activate a modem, select the device and click
“Control”.
The modem does not support Update/Activate methods: A
message will state that there is no support for PRL Update,
Activation, or FUMO.
The modem supports Update/Activate methods: A message
will display showing options for each supported method:
•
•
•
Modem Activation / Update: Activate, Reactivate, or
Upgrade Configuration.
Preferred Roaming List (PRL) Update
Firmware Update Management Object (FUMO)
Click the appropriate icon to start the process.
If the modem is connected when you start an operation the
router will automatically disconnect it. The router may start
another modem as a failover measure. When the operation is
done the modem will go back to an idle state, at which point the
router may restart it depending on failover and failback settings.
NOTE: Only one operation is supported at a time. If you try to start the same
operation on the same modem twice the UI will not report failure and the
request will finish normally when the original request is done. However if you
try to start a different operation or use a different modem, this second request
will fail without interfering with the pending operation.

7.1.6 Configuration Rules (Advanced)
This section allows you to create general rules
that apply to the Internet connections of a
particular type. These can be general or very
specific. For example, you could create a rule that
applies to all WiMAX modems, or a rule that only
applies to an Internet source with a particular MAC
address.
The Configuration Rules list shows all rules that
you have created, as well as all of the default
rules. These are listed in the order they will be
applied. The most general rules are listed at the
top, and the most specific rules are at the bottom.
The router goes down the list and applies all rules
that fit for attached Internet sources. Configuration
settings farther down the list will override previous
settings.
Select any of these rules and click “Edit” to change the settings for a rule. To create a new rule, click “Add.”

7.2 Data Usage
Data Usage Management & Alerts allows you to create and manage rules that help control the data usage of a modem.
If you have a limited data plan or a price increase on your plan after a certain amount of usage, a Data Usage Rule can
help you track these amounts. You can set a rule to shut down use of a modem and/or send a message when you reach a
data usage amount you set.
Enable Data Usage: Enabled/Disabled. (Default:
Disabled.)
When you select Enabled, you will see the Data Usage
Agreement shown to the right. The purpose of this
agreement is to ensure that you understand that the data
numbers for the CBA750B may not perfectly match those
of your carrier: CradlePoint cannot be held responsible.
You must accept the agreement by clicking Yes in order to
begin creating data usage rules.
Warning: You should set your data limits lower than your
Data Allowance and regularly compare the numbers
provided by the router with the numbers from your carrier.

keep all interfaces with these rules at a similar percentage utilization of data (e.g. 10%, 50%, 90%) as the cycle
progresses, rather than quickly using 100% of a fast 1GB capped interface while using only a fraction of a slow 10GB
capped interface, thus leaving the rest of the cycle with only the slow interface. The Data Usage algorithm on the Load
Balancing page must be selected or this checkbox has no effect.

amount will be reset at the end of each cycle. Select the
length of a cycle from a dropdown menu with the following
choices:
• Daily
• Weekly
• Monthly
Cycle Start Date: Select the
date you wish the rule to begin.
This date will be used to track
when the rule will reset.
Shutdown WAN on Cap: If
selected, the WAN device will shut down when the
assigned usage is reached. A cycle reset or a rule deletion
will re-enable the device.
Send Alert on Cap: An email alert will be generated and sent when the assigned usage is reached.
WARNING: The SMTP mail server must be configured in System Settings ! Device Alerts.
Custom Alert: When checked you enable a second email to be configured for a percentage of the assigned usage.
Percent of Usage (1-1000): If selected, a custom alert will be sent when your data usage reaches this percentage of your
usage cap. For example, you could set this at 90 percent so that you know when your usage is nearing 100 percent of the
cap.

Load Balance
Select the Load Balance
Algorithm from the following
dropdown options:
•
•
•
•
Round-Robin: Evenly
distribute each session
to the available WAN connections.
Rate: Distribute load based on the current upload and download rates. A WAN device's upload and download
bandwidth values can be set in Internet ! Connection Manager.
Spillover: This was the default algorithm in older (version 3) firmware. Load is always given to devices with the
most available bandwidth. The estimated bandwidth rate is based on a combination of the upload and download
configuration values and the observed capabilities of the device.
Data Usage: This mode works in concert with the Data Usage feature (Internet ! Data Usage). The router will
make a best effort to keep data usage between interfaces at a similar percentage of the assigned data cap in the
Data Usage rule for each interface, rather than distributing sessions based solely on bandwidth. For proper function
you need to create data usage rules for each WAN device you will be load balancing. Make certain to select the
"Use with Load Balancing" checkbox in the Data Usage rule editor.
WAN Affinity
WAN Affinity rules allow you to manage traffic in your network so that particular bandwidth uses are associated with
particular WAN sources. This allows you to prioritize bandwidth.
EXAMPLE: You could specify that your guest LAN is only associated with your Ethernet connection with no failover. Then if your
Ethernet connection goes down and the embedded modem connects for failover for your primary LAN, your guest LAN will not take
bandwidth from your primary LAN, saving you money.
Click “Add” to open the WAN Affinity Policy Editor and create a new WAN Affinity rule.

When you enable Advanced Security Mode, you have three different options for the Authentication Mode:
•
•
•
Local Users
TACACS+
RADIUS
Local Users
Create users with administrative privileges by inputting usernames and
passwords in the Advanced User Management table.
TACACS+
TACACS+ stands for “Terminal Access Controller
Access-Control System plus”. The router will use a
TACACS+ server (or two, optionally) to authorize
administration.
Server Timeout: If the servers are not reached
within the set time (possibly because the WAN is
down), the router will automatically fall back to
using Local Users mode to prevent users from
being locked out.
Authentication Service: Choose from:
•
•
•
ASCII / Login
PAP
CHAP
Server Address: This can be either an IP address
in the form of "1.2.3.4", or a DNS name in form of

"host.domain.com". Only lower case letters are allowed for a DNS name.
Port: Port 49 is default for TACACS+.
Shared Secret
RADIUS
RADIUS stands for “Remote Authentication Dial In
User Service”. The router will use a RADIUS server
(or two, optionally) to authorize administration.
Server Timeout: If the servers are not reached
within the set time (possibly because the WAN is
down), the router will automatically fall back to using
Local Users mode to prevent users from being
locked out.
Server Address: This can be either an IP address in
the form of "1.2.3.4", or a DNS name in form of
"host.domain.com". Only lower case letters are
allowed for a DNS name.

8.1.2
System Clock
Enabling NTP will tell the router to get its system time from a remote server on the Internet. If you do not enable NTP then
the router time will be based on when the router firmware was built, which is guaranteed to be wrong. Whenever the
Internet connection is re-established and once a week thereafter the router will ask the server for the current time so it can
correct itself.
You then have the option of selecting an NTP server and adjusting the NTP server port. Select the NTP server from the
dropdown list. Any of the given NTP servers will be sufficient unless, for example, you need to synchronize your router’s
time with other devices in a network.
Time Zone: Select from a dropdown list. Setting your Time Zone is required to properly show time in your router log.
Daylight Savings Time: Select this checkbox if your location observes daylight savings time.

8.1.3
Local Management
Enable Internet Bounce Pages: Bounce pages show up in your web browser when the router is not connected to the
Internet. They inform you that you are not connected and try to explain why. If you disable bounce pages then you will just
get the usual browser timeout. In the normal case when the router is connected to the Internet you don't see them at all.
Disable Signal Strength Button: This disables the Signal Strength button on the physical router.
Disable IP Passthrough/Configuration mode switch: This disables the ROUTER/PASSTHROUGH SWITCH on the
physical router. Click this to ensure that IP passthrough or router settings created through the administration pages (or
WiPipe Central, CLI, etc.) will not be overridden if someone flips the physical switch on the router.

Local Domain: The local domain is used as the suffix for DNS entries of local hosts. This is tied to the hostnames of
DHCP clients as DHCP_HOSTNAME.LOCAL_DOMAIN.
System Identifier: This is a customizable identity that will be used in router reporting and alerting. The default value is the
MAC address of the router.
Require HTTPS Connection: Check this box if you want to encrypt all router administration communication.
Secure HTTPS Port: Enter the port number you want to use. The default is 443.
Enable SSH Server: When the router's SSH server is enabled you may access the router's command line interface (CLI)
using the standards-based SSH protocol. Use the username "admin" and the standard system password to log in.

Remote Management
Configure the ability to manage the CBA750B remotely with HTTP/HTTPS or SSH. This tab also allows a user to enable
incoming WAN pings.
Allow WAN pings: When enabled the functionality allows an external WAN client to ping the router.
Allow Remote Web Administration: When remote administration is enabled it allows access to these administration web
pages from the Internet. With it disabled, you must be a client on the local network to access the administration website.
For security, remote access is usually done via a non-standard http port. Additionally, encrypted connections can be
required for an added level of security.
•
•
•
Require HTTPS Connection: Requiring a secure (https) connection is recommended.
HTTP Port: Default: 8080. This option is disabled if you select “Require Secure Connection”.
Secure HTTPS Port: Default: 8443.
NOTE: You can restrict remote access to only specified IP addresses in Network Settings ! Firewall under Remote Administration Access
Control.
Allow Remote SSH Access: This will enable SSH access to the router from the Internet. It is only available when the
SSH access is enabled in the Local Management tab. Some Carriers block the remote SSH Access ports. If a ping to the
router's WAN port does not work, it is unlikely that remote SSH Access will work.

Include UTF8 Byte Order Mark: The log message is sent using UTF-8 encoding. By default the router will attach the
Unicode Byte Order Mark (BOM) to the Syslog message in compliance with the Syslog protocol, RFC5424. Some Syslog
servers may not fully support RFC5424 and will treat the BOM as ASCII text, which will appear as garbled characters in
the log. If this occurs, disable this option.
Log to attached USB stick: Only enable this option if instructed by a CradlePoint support agent. This will write a very
verbose log file to the root level of an attached USB stick. Please disable the feature before removing the USB stick, or
you may lose some logging data.

10 APPENDIX
10.1 Regulatory and Safety Information
Read all operating instructions and the safety information below and before using the CBA750B device to avoid injury.
FEDERAL COMMUNICATION COMMISSION INTERFERENCE STATEMENT
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct
the interference by one of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
FCC CAUTION: Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate this equipment. This device
complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
FCC Radiation Exposure Statement: This equipment complies with FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. This equipment should be installed and
operated with a minimum distance of 20 cm between the radiator & your body. To comply with FCC regulations limiting both maximum RF output power and human exposure to RF
radiation, for the CBA750B-LE the maximum antenna gain must not exceed 8 dBi in the cellular band, 3 dBi in the PCS band and 10 dBi in the LTE band. For the CBA750B-LP the
maximum antenna gain including cable loss must not exceed 7.5 dBi in the cellular band, 3 dBi in the PCS band, 5.5 dBi in LTE Band 4, and 9 dBi in LTE Band 17. For the CBA750BW the maximum antenna gain must not exceed 9.2 dBi in the 2.5 GHz band (2496-2690 MHz).
SAFETY AND HAZARDS
Under no circumstances should the CBA750B device be used in any areas (a) where blasting is in progress, (b) where explosive atmospheres may be present, or (c) that are near (i)
medical or life support equipment, or (ii) any equipment which may be susceptible to any form of radio interference. In such areas, the CBA750B device MUST BE POWERED OFF AT
ALL TIMES (since the device otherwise could transmit signals that might interfere with such equipment). In addition, under no circumstances should the CBA750B device be used in
any aircraft, regardless of whether the aircraft is on the ground or in flight. In any aircraft, the CBA750B device MUST BE POWERED OFF AT ALL TIMES (since the device otherwise
could transmit signals that might interfere with various onboard systems on such aircraft). Furthermore, under no circumstances should the CBA750B device be used by the driver or
operator of any vehicle. Such use of the device will detract from the driver’s or operator’s control of that vehicle. In some jurisdictions, use of the CBA750B device while driving or
operating a vehicle constitutes a civil and/or criminal offense.
Due to the nature of wireless communications, transmission and reception of data by the CBA750B device can never be guaranteed, and it is possible that data communicated or
transmitted wirelessly may be delayed, corrupted (i.e., contain errors), or totally lost. The CBA750B device is not intended for, and CradlePoint recommends the device not be used in,
any critical applications where failure to transmit or receive data could result in property damage or loss or personal injury of any kind (including death) to the user or to any other party.
CradlePoint expressly disclaims liability for damages of any kind resulting from: (a) delays, errors, or losses of any data transmitted or received using the device; or (b) any failure of
the device to transmit or receive such data.
