1.3 MBR95 Overview
Create a WiFi hotspot anywhere you have broadband signal
Create secure instant networks anywhere you receive mobile broadband signal. The most powerful feature of the
MBR95 is its ability to use USB Mobile Broadband Data Modems to create instant secure networks, plus traditional
wired networking options like Cable, DSL, or Satellite.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Connect this router to a 4G/3G MOBILE MODEM and get more from your data plan. Most WiFi enabled devices
don‘t support USB 4G/3G Data Modems. When you connect the modem to the MBR95, you can securely share
your data plan with up to 32 people or devices.
Or, connect this router to your existing DSL / CABLE / SATELLITE MODEM and add 600 feet of WiFi to your
network.

3.3 Common Problems
This section contains a list of some of the most common issues faced by users of the MBR95.
Please visit CradlePoint Knowledgebase at http://knowledgebase.cradlepoint.com/ for more help and answers to your
other questions.
3.3.1
Your USB Modem Does Not Work With the Router

If your USB data modem 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 MBR95. 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 4G WiMAX modem you need to set the WiMAX Realm. This can be done on the administration
http://192.168.0.1‖ in your browser. On page 3 of the First
pages. Log in using the hostname ―
cp/‖ or IP address ―
Time Setup Wizard (go to Getting Started → First Time Setup), you can set the WiMAX Realm. Be sure to click
Apply on page 4 to save the change.

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 → Modem Settings. In the Modem Configuration section,
select your modem and click ―C
onfigure.‖ There is an Access Point Name field: Enter the APN and click Apply.
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.

6) CradlePoint recommends that you customize your
WiFi Network Name. Type in your personalized
Network name here. You can also enable the Guest
Network feature (for more configuration options, see
Network Settings → WiFi / Local Network and the
Wireless (WiFi) Network Settings section of this
manual).
Choose the WIFI SECURITY MODE that best fits
your needs:




BEST (WPA2): Select this option if your
wireless adapters support WPA2-only mode.
This will connect to most new devices and is
the most secure, but may not connect to older
devices or some handheld devices such as a
PSP.
GOOD (WPA1 & WPA2): Select this option if
your wireless adapters support WPA or
WPA2. This is the most compatible with
modern devices and PCs.
POOR (WEP): Select this option if your
wireless adapters only support WEP. This should only be used if a legacy device that only supports WEP will be
connected to the router. WEP is insecure and obsolete and is only supported in the router for legacy reasons.
The router cannot use 802.11n modes if WEP is enabled; WiFi performance and range will be limited.
NONE (OPEN): Select this option if you do not want to activate any security features.
CradlePoint recommends BEST (WPA2) WiFi security. Try this option first and switch only if you have a device that
is incompatible with WPA2.

PAGE 22
CRADLEPOINT MBR95 | USER MANUAL Firmware ver. 3.2.4
Choose a personalized WPA PASSWORD or WEP KEY. This password will be used to connect devices to the
router‘s WiFi broadcast once the security settings have been saved.
WPA Password: The WPA Password must be between 8 and 64 characters long. A combination of upper and lower
case letters along with numbers and special characters is recommended to prevent hackers from gaining access to
your network.
WEP Key: A WEP Key must be either a hexadecimal value of 5 or 13 characters or a text value of 10 or 26
characters.

When using the Web interface, it will be important to pay attention to the difference between the internet source for your
MBR95 and the network created by the MBR95. The “Internet” tab broadly refers to the router‘s source of internet, while
the “Network Settings” tab broadly refers to the network created by the router.
The following chart highlights this difference:
Network Settings tab

If you want to change the content filtering settings for the network created by the MBR95, go to the Network
Settings tab.
If you have multiple internet sources (such as a USB modem and an Ethernet connection) for which you would like
to set priority levels, go to the Internet tab.

5.1 Client List
The Client List displays the specifications of each
device connected to your router, including
Wireless and Wired clients.
Wireless Clients. For each device using a wireless
connection to your MBR95, the following
information is displayed: Hostname, IP, MAC,
Connection, and Time Online.
Wired Clients. For each device using a wired
connection to your MBR95, the following
information is displayed: Hostname, IP, and MAC.
Hostname: The name by which each computer or device in a network is known.
IP: The ―I
P address,‖ or ―
Internet Protocol address,‖ specifies a location for each device.
MAC: This is the "MAC address", a factory-assigned identifier used to identify a specific attached computer or device.
Connection: Summary of the wireless connection. For example: 802.11n, 20 MHz, 130 Mbps, -26 dBm
 802.11n: The transmission standard being used by the client. Possible values include 802.11b, 802.11g, and
802.11n. 802.11n is the newest and best standard, but some older devices may not support it.
 20 MHz: This is the channel width that defines the theoretical data rate (in megahertz) that the attached computer
or device can send to or receive from the router. The channel width is set in Network Settings → WiFi / Local
Network. Typically this will be 20 MHz, but 40 MHz is possible if the router is set to use two adjacent 20 MHz
channels. A wider channel can mean better performance, but not if there is too much interference.
 130 Mbps: The transmit rate (in megabits per second) currently used to transmit packets from the router to the
client. This rate changes automatically to match environmental conditions. Distance from the router, interference,
etc can impact this value. Higher values indicate better performance. Devices can still function in the network with
as little as 1 Mbps.
 -26 dBm: A relative measure of wireless signal quality (decibels relative to one milliwatt). This expresses
theoretical best quality. The value is given as a negative exponent: -20 is a very good value while -80 is relatively

poor. Signal quality can be reduced by distance, by interference from other radio-frequency sources (such as
cordless telephones or neighboring wireless networks), and by obstacles between the router and the wireless
device.
Time Online: Simply the amount of time the device has been connected to the router.

5.2 GPS
If GPS support is enabled and a modem capable of
providing GPS coordinates is connected, this page
will show a graphical view of your router's location.
See the GPS section in System Settings →
Administration to enable GPS support.
GPS information is only displayed if 1) the modem
supports GPS, 2) your carrier allows the GPS
functionality, and 3) the modem has sufficient GPS
signal strength. If no information is displayed,
check that both the modem and your carrier
support GPS.1 If GPS is supported make sure the
modem is in an area where it can receive a signal
from the GPS satellites.

WiMAX Modem (U300 – 4G)
Diagnostics
For a WiMAX modem, the CINR and
Signal Strength values are important as
they show how strong the signal is and
that has significant effects on how much
data the router can download or send. You
can place the router in different locations
to see where you get better signal. You
can also see a LED display of the current
signal strength. Pressing the router's WPS
button will toggle the LED display on and
off.

5.6 System Logs
The router automatically logs (records) events of
possible interest in its internal memory. If there is not
enough internal memory for all events, logs of older
events are deleted, but logs of the latest events are
retained. The log options allow you to filter the router
logs you want to view. You can define what types of
events you want to view and the level of events to
view. This router also has external Syslog Server
support so you can send the log files to a computer on
your network that is running a Syslog utility.
Auto Update: The logs automatically refresh
whenever the router creates a new message.
Update: Click to check for new router messages.
Save log to a file: This will open a dialog in your
browser that will allow you to save the router's log to
your computer.

6.1 Content Filtering
You have two main options for filtering
content in the network created through
your MBR95.
1) Domain / URL Filter Rules:
Create a list of disallowed
websites
(facebook.com,
for
example).
2) OpenDNS Content Filtering:
Allows several options for filtering
rules.
6.1.1 OpenDNS
OpenDNS is a service that protects you
online by filtering websites. OpenDNS
protects you from phishing websites and
URL typos once you select a filtering
level.






None: Disables Web filtering that
uses OpenDNS,
Minimal: Filters phishing and URL
typos.
Good: Filters any Web site
containing pornography and enables typo and phishing redirection.
Better: Filters more nudity, sexuality, and tasteless content.
Best: Filters more nudity, sexuality, and tasteless content. Selecting ―Be
st‖ will filter all content which is deemed
adult content by OpenDNS
Custom: Custom OpenDNS settings. See below for more information.

PLEASE VISIT HTTP://KNOWLEDGEBASE.CRADLEPOINT.COM/ FOR MORE HELP AND RESOURCES
PAGE 51
CRADLEPOINT MBR95| USER MANUAL Firmware ver. 3.2.4
In addition to the standard filtering levels, you have the following options for filter control:
Custom OpenDNS: To use the Custom
OpenDNS setting you need to first create
an OpenDNS account. You can create an
account at OpenDNS and click on the
―
Create Account‖ link. Follow the onscreen
instructions to create an account.
Once you have an OpenDNS account,
enter your account information in order to
use your Custom OpenDNS settings.
Custom OpenDNS settings use the DNSO-MATIC (an OpenDNS Service) API to update the IP address of your OpenDNS network. In order for Custom settings to
work you need to login to DNS-O-MATIC using your OpenDNS credentials and "Add A Service" for the network specified
above.
Enable 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 (Advanced Mode only)
DHCP stands for Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol. The built-in DHCP
Server automatically assigns IP addresses
to the computers and other devices on your
local area network (LAN) and Wireless local
area network (WLAN). In this section, you
have options for configuring the DHCP
Server and controlling some of its features.
Enable DHCP Service: (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.
Starting and ending IP addresses: 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: 192.168.0.72 to 192.168.0.200).
Example: The MBR95 uses an IP address of 192.168.0.1. 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.

PAGE 53
CRADLEPOINT MBR95| USER MANUAL Firmware ver. 3.2.4
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.
Reservations: This option lets you reserve IP addresses and assign the same IP address to the network device with the
specified MAC address any time it requests an IP address. This 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 use 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 (Advanced Mode only)
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 MBR95 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 (DynDNS) Configuration: Allows you to host a server (Web, FTP, Game Server, 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 (xbox, nas, toaster, 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, if you want
WiFi clients to access DNS servers that you use for customized addressing, or if you have a local DNS server on your
network.
Automatic Config: Automatic or Static (default: Automatic). Switching to ―Sta
tic‖ 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.
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.

6.3.2 DynDNS Configuration
The Dynamic DNS feature allows you to host a
server (Web, FTP, Game Server, 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 DynDNS Service: 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 DynDNS protocol. See www.dyndns.org for
details. Example: myserver.mydomain.net.
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.

PAGE 56
CRADLEPOINT MBR95| USER MANUAL Firmware ver. 3.2.4
Password: Enter the password or key provided by the Dynamic DNS service provider.
6.3.3 Advanced DynDNS 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 (xbox, nas, toaster, 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.
For example, a personal laptop with IP address 192.168.0.164 could
be assigned the name ―M
yLaptop‖.
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 the

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, such as some internet gaming systems, 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.

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 ―8
0‖ 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.

6.4.2
IP Filter Rules
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, you might have opened ports in order to host a gaming server 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 the computers of friends who have been invited to join your game.


Name: Name your rule.
Direction: ―I
ncoming‖ or ―Outgoing‖
Action: ―All
ow‖ or ―
Deny‖
Start Port: Use for a single port or a range of ports.
End Port: Use for a single port or a range of ports.
Network Address
Subnet Mask
Use Start Port, End Port, Network Address, and Subnet Mask to
specify the ports and addresses for which the rule applies. You can
specify a range of ports or a single port (by inputting the same value in
both port fields). Similarly, the subnet mask can be used to define
either a range of addresses (i.e. 255.255.255.0) or a single address
(255.255.255.255).
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.

6.4.3
DMZ (DeMilitarized Zone)
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, supporting
older games, 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 ―R
eservations‖ section under Network Settings → DHCP
Server and reserve the IP address for the device.
As with port forwarding caution should be used when enabling the DMZ feature as it can threaten the security of
your network. DMZ should only be used as a last resort.
6.4.4
Firewall Options
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.
Packet Normalization: Normalizing packets helps secure the router in untrusted environments. It does so by "scrubbing"
packets that are ambiguous or might represent a break-in attempt. Packet Normalization also helps insure reliable
connectivity for some WAN devices such as WiMAX modems. Only disable this option if you are sure you do not need it.
Static NAT Ports: If enabled the source port does not translate in TCP and UDP packets during NAT. Some NAT
traversal protocols such as STUN(T) require that the source port stay the same when traversing the firewall.

6.5 MAC Filter
The MAC Filter allows you to create a list of devices that
have either exclusive access (white list) or no access
(black list) to your wireless LAN.
By default, the list of addresses is designated a ―w
hite
list.‖ Deselecting White List turns the list of addresses into
a disallowed black list.
Advanced: Add devices to either your white list or black
list simply by inputting each device‘s MAC address.

6.6 Routing (Advanced Mode only)
Add a new static route to the IP routing table or
edit/remove an existing route.
Static routes are unnecessary for most users.
They are typically only 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.
Type: Select from a dropdown list to specify the type of the
target:


Network
Host
Netmask: Used to specify which portion of the IP/Network
Address signifies the network trying to be accessed and
which part signifies the host that the packets will be routed
to.
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.

6.7 WiFi / Local Network
This section is used to configure the
settings for wireless networks created
by your router. Note that changes made
in this section may also need to be
duplicated on wireless devices that you
want to connect to your wireless
network.
For example, if you change the LAN IP address,
devices within your network will lose connection
to the LAN. They will have to reconnect to your
network.
6.7.1
LAN Settings
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.
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.
Hostname: [Default: cp (for CradlePoint)] The hostname is the DNS name associated with the router's local area network
IP address. You can access the router‘s administration pages by inputting the hostname into your browser, so if you
change ―cp‖ to another hostname, you can access the administration pages through the new hostname.
Guest IP Address: This is the address used by the router for the guest network communication. The guest network
DHCP range is automatically selected based off this address. The guest network cannot overlap with the main network.

6.7.2
Wireless (WiFi) Network Settings
By default, the MBR95 has two wireless networks set up: Primary and Guest. ―
Primary‖ is the main network for this router.
―Gue
st‖ is an additional network that you may enable (this is disabled by default) to allow other people to briefly use your
internet connection without knowing your Primary security password. It may have different security modes than your
Primary network. Users on the Guest network can see other Guest connections and the internet, but cannot see devices
on your Primary network.
Select either your Primary or Guest network. Click Edit to
view the options to configure that network.
WiFi Name (SSID): When you are browsing for available
wireless networks, this is the name that will be broadcast
from this router for the selected network. This name is
referred to as the SSID (service set identifier). For security
purposes, it is highly recommended that you change this
from the pre-configured name.
Hidden: This shows whether the router broadcasts its
SSID. It is somewhat harder for hackers to find and attack a
router that is not broadcasting its SSID, which adds to the
wireless security.
Isolate: Select this to isolate all wireless clients so they
cannot directly communicate with each other on the
wireless network.
WMM: WiFi Multimedia. This is a basic traffic shaping, or
QoS (quality of service), system for the network. WMM
works behind the scenes to set priorities for different types
of traffic on your network. For example, video streams are
given higher priority than print jobs, since video streams
need consistent throughput.
Enabled: If the network is available.

Enterprise.
In order to protect your network from hackers and unauthorized users, it is highly recommended you choose WPA2/AES
for security if your attached devices can support it. WEP and WPA/TKIP are obsolete and have been replaced by
WPA/AES. Using those security settings will cause the WiFi to limit to 802.11g modes.

WiFi Settings
Random Channel: Select to randomize the
WiFi channel. This makes it less likely that
the wireless signal from this router will
conflict with another router in the same area.
Channel: The WiFi channel corresponds to
a frequency the router uses to communicate
with other devices. The range is 1 to 11, and
1, 6, and 11 do not overlap each other. If a
WiMAX modem is attached, a higher
number channel will increase the chance the
router's WiFi and modem's WiMAX radios
will conflict with each other, which may
result in lower throughput. Select a channel
from the dropdown list:
 1 (2412 MHz)
 2 (2417 MHz)

CRADLEPOINT MBR95| USER MANUAL Firmware ver. 3.2.4
Optimize WiFi/WiMAX coexistence: Setting this will lessen any possible conflict with WiFi in the 2.4 GHz band and an
attached WiMAX modem. If a WiMAX modem is attached to the router when the WiFi is enabled, the WiFi channel and
transmit power will be set to levels that optimize the performance of the WiMAX modem. If no WiMAX modem is attached,
then default channel and power settings will be used even if this is selected.
Aggressively optimize WiFi/WiMAX coexistence: Selecting this will allow the router to switch WiFi channels and power
levels to match changes in WiMAX modem operating frequencies. This may cause some attached WiFi clients to lose
their connection. This is disabled if WiFi as WAN is enabled, as the router will need to match the WiFi channel of the host
router.
TX Power: Normally the wireless transmitter operates at 100% power. In some circumstances, however, there might be a
need to isolate specific frequencies to a smaller area. By reducing the power of the radio, you can prevent transmissions
from reaching beyond your corporate/home office or designated wireless area.
RTS Threshold: When an excessive number of wireless packet collisions are occurring, wireless performance can be
improved by using the RTS/CTS (Request to Send/Clear to Send) handshake protocol. The wireless transmitter will begin
to send RTS frames (and wait for CTS) when data frame size in bytes is greater than the RTS Threshold. This setting
should remain at its default value.
Fragmentation Threshold: Wireless frames can be divided into smaller units (fragments) to improve performance in the
presence of RF interference and at the limits of RF coverage. Fragmentation will occur when frame size in bytes is greater
than the Fragmentation Threshold. This setting should remain at its default value. Setting the Fragmentation value too low
may result in poor performance.
DTIM: A DTIM is a countdown informing clients of the next window for listening to broadcast and multicast messages.
When the wireless router has buffered broadcast or multicast messages for associated clients, it sends the next DTIM
with a DTIM Interval value. Wireless clients detect the beacons and awaken to receive the broadcast and multicast
messages. The default value is 1. Valid settings are between 1 and 255.
Beacon: Beacons are packets sent by a wireless router to synchronize wireless devices. Specify a Beacon Period value
between 20 and 1000 milliseconds.

WPS: WiFi Protected Setup is a method for easy and secure establishment of a wireless network. It can be used instead
of passwords when connecting clients that support WPS.
Short Slot: Slot Time is the period wireless clients use in determining if the channel is free for transmission. Enabling this
value allows clients that can utilize a shorter time to do so. Disabling this option forces all clients to use a longer backoff
check and thus may reduce network throughput while reducing the number of transmission collisions.
Wireless Mode: Select the WiFi clients the router will be compatible with. Greater compatibility is a tradeoff with better
performance. For greatest compatibility with all WiFi devices, select "802.11 b/g/n". For best performance, connect with
only other 802.11n-compatible devices and select "802.11 n".
 802.11 b
 802.11 b/g
 802.11 b/g/n
 802.11 n
Channel Width: Selects whether the router uses a single 20 MHz channel to send/receive, or uses two adjacent 20 MHz
channels to create a 40 MHz channel. Higher performance is possible with the 40 MHz channel. Selecting Auto is
generally best. Enabling WiFi as WAN will force 20MHz only mode.
Extended Channel: When operating in 40 MHz mode the AP will use an extended channel either below or above the
current channel. Optimal selection will depend on the channels of other networks in the area.
MCS: 802.11n uses multiple Modulation Coding Schemes to enable higher throughput in various environments. Since
clients can dynamically change rates depending on environment selecting Auto is generally best.
Short GI: Short GI is an optimization for shortening the interval between transmissions. May be incompatible with older
clients.

Greenfield Mode: Greenfield mode uses an 802.11n-only preamble to transmit packets that older wireless clients cannot
interpret. Use of greenfield mode in a mixed 802.11 environment may result in degraded performance but can improve
performance if all devices in the area are 802.11n compatible.
Antenna Diversity Mode: Antenna Diversity selects the optimal antenna to use for wireless reception. Automatic mode
periodically checks both antennas and selects the one with best receive signal strength. Forcing a specific antenna will
disable the periodic check and use the selected antenna for all wireless reception.
 Auto
 Force antenna 1
 Force antenna 2
RADIUS Timeout: (Default: 3600 seconds) When using an Enterprise security mode clients will be forced to reauthenticate with the RADIUS server at this interval in seconds. This allows administrators to revoke access so when an
attached client‘s authentication expires they must re-authenticate.
RADIUS Retry: (Default: 60 seconds) When using an Enterprise security mode, if a RADIUS query fails to receive a
response from the server it will delay by this interval (in seconds) before attempting another query. This helps protect the
network from floods of authentication requests if the RADIUS server is temporarily unreachable.

6.8 WiPipe QoS (Advanced Mode only)
When WiPipe QoS (Quality of Service/Traffic
Shaping) is enabled, the router will control the
flow of internet traffic according to the userdefined rules. In other words, Traffic Shaping
improves performance by allowing the user to
prioritize applications.
Enable WiPipe QoS: Click on this box to open
options for controlling internet traffic. You can
control Uplink Speed values or define your own
Traffic Shaping rules. When WiPipe QoS is
enabled, the router restricts the flow of outbound
traffic so as not to exceed the WAN uplink
bandwidth.
Default Uplink Speed: By default, the Uplink
Speed values are set as fast as possible. Click
to deselect default values if you want to restrict
the maximum uplink speed for the internet
source(s) you are using (4G Modem, Ethernet,
3G Modem, and/or WiFi).
You might do this to reduce overall bandwidth
use for cost reasons or to prioritize available
bandwidth for download. It is recommended that
you experiment with different values for your particular internet connection to yield the best results.
NOTE: Uplink speed is the speed at which data can be transferred to your ISP. You can test your uplink speed with a service such as
speedtest.net.
6.8.1 Add Traffic Shaping Rule

automatic classification will be adequate, and specific Traffic Shaping Rules will not be required.
Traffic Shaping supports overlap between rules, where more than one rule can match for a specific message flow. If more
than one rule matches, the rule with the highest priority will be used.
Name. Create a name for the rule that is meaningful to
you.
Protocol. The protocol used by the messages: TCP,
UDP, or ICMP. Select ―An
y‖ if your rule does not control a
specific type of message that uses a specific protocol.
Priority. The priority of the message flow is entered here-15 receives the highest priority (most urgent) and 0
receives the lowest priority (least urgent).
Enable. Specifies whether the entry will be active or
inactive.
Click Next to continue to the next page.
Example: You sometimes work from home, and you share bandwidth with your children. You can set a rule to prioritize your computer and a rule
to reduce priority for their computer. To prioritize your computer, you might use the following settings:
 Name: My Computer
 Protocol: Any (Your computer will use all three protocols; there‘s no reason to restrict this rule to just one protocol)
 Priority: 15
To lower the priority of your children‘s computer, you might use these settings:
 Name: Kids‘ Computer
 Protocol: Any
 Priority: 2

7.1 Connection Manager
The router can establish an uplink via the Ethernet WAN port, WiFi as WAN, or modems plugged into a modem port. If the
primary WAN 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 may be plugged in and each may establish a link.

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 red boxes; 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. To configure a
specific interface, use the settings page for that type
of interface (e.g. Ethernet Settings page for wired
connections).

7.1.2
Failure Check (Advanced Mode Only)
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.)
ICMP Ping Check and Ping IP Address: Enable and configure an IP address that the router will use to check if the WAN
connection is available. 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.

7.1.3 Failback Configuration (Advanced Mode Only)
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: Failback based on the amount of
data passed over time. Use of the active
connection must be below this threshold for
failback to occur. This will limit the
interruption that occurs during failback.

Low (Rate: 10 KB/s. Time Period: 240 seconds.)
Custom (Rate range: 1-100 KB/s. Time Period range: 10-300 seconds.)
Time: Failback 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).
Immediate: Failback 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.
Disabled: Deactivate failback mode.

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.
Process Timeout: If the process fails an error message will display.
Activation has a 3-minute timeout, PRL update has a 4-minute timeout, and
FUMO has a 10-minute timeout.

7.4 WiFi as WAN Settings (Advanced Mode only)
When WiFi as WAN is enabled and configured the router will use a remote WiFi access point for internet connectivity. In
other words, external WiFi—from a hotel for example—can be used as the internet source for your own private network.
When enabled in the WiFi as WAN Settings page, the MBR95 will find possible WiFi sources that you can select and add.
Unless the WiFi source is on an unprotected network, you will need to know the password or key.
All CradlePoint routers and some other routers use the same default IP address, 192.168.0.1. If you attempt to set up
WiFi as WAN and there is an ―IPconflict,‖ you need to change the IP address. The router is attempting to use the same IP
LAN Settings‖
address for both WAN and LAN, which is impossible. Go to Network Settings → Local Network. In the ―
section you can change the IP address. For example, you might change 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1.
Saved Profiles:
This is a list of WiFi networks that have already
been configured as WAN sources. The router will
attempt to connect to any of these access points
using the password you have configured. If more
than one access point is in range, then the router
will connect with the highest priority network.
7.4.1
Site Survey
This is a list of WiFi networks that the router can
currently find, along with information about the
network such as its mode and channel. If you

Web Login
This password is the administration password; this
is separate from the WiFi security password. It
allows a user to change router settings. This
password can also be changed through the First
Time Setup Wizard. The default password is found
on the bottom of the MBR95.
8.1.2
Network Time Protocol
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. 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.
8.1.3

This is the time zone and daylight savings setting used by the router for its own clock. This can also be controlled in the
First Time Setup Wizard.
Daylight Savings Time: Select this checkbox if your location observes daylight savings time.
8.1.4
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.
This allows a user to disable bounce pages for cases where the router WAN link is down.
8.1.5
UPnP
Universal Plug and Play is a set of networking
protocols standardized by the UPnP Forum. UPnP
enables clients to determine network configuration
and configure the network to allow traffic through the firewall without direct user interaction. UPnP can simplify the use of
devices like game consoles and other applications that require network configuration but can also allow unprivileged users
to manipulate network configuration.
8.1.6
Remote Management
Allows a user to enable incoming WAN pings or to
change settings for the router from the internet
using the router's internet address.
Allow WAN pings: When enabled the
functionality allows an external WAN client to ping
the router.

WAN Hostname: This hostname is the DNS name associated with the router's internet connection interface. If DHCP is
used on the interface this hostname will be used when requesting a DHCP lease.
Allow Remote 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. Requiring a secure (https) connection is recommended.
8.1.7
GPS
Allows a user to configure GPS NMEA sentence
reporting, available through a router-based server
and/or a remote server.

8.2.1 SMTP Mail Server
Since the MBR95 does not have its own email server, to
receive alerts you must enable an SMTP server. This is
possible through most email services (Gmail, Yahoo,
etc.)
Each SMTP server will have different specifications for
setup, so you have to look those up separately. The
following is an example using Gmail:
