BASIC SETUP
1. Insert an activated SIM into the integrated modem.
The Cradlepoint ARC CBA850 requires a SIM with an activated wireless broadband data plan. Contact
your carrier for details about selecting a data plan and about the process for provisioning your SIM.
Once you have an activated SIM, insert it into the integrated modem:
1. Remove the modem cover and pull out the integrated modem.
2. Insert the SIM card into the slot marked SIM 1 (use the other slot, SIM 2, for a secondary/
backup SIM).
Be sure to insert the card with the notch-end first and the gold contacts facing down – it will click
into place.
2. Reinsert the integrated modem.
Slide the integrated modem back into its slot. Put the cover back into place and insert the included security
screw if desired (requires small Phillips screwdriver). NOTE: To remove modem, attach included modem
antennas (finger-tighten only) and pull modem straight out.
3. Attach included modem antennas.
Antennas are finger-tighten only. Attach to connectors marked MAIN and AUX.
4. Connect to a power source.
Attach the included adapter to the device and to a power source OR connect a POE-enabled RJ45 cable
to LAN 2. Then turn the power switch on (I).
5. Connect to a computer or other network equipment.
Connect via Ethernet to LAN 1 for local management. Connect LAN 2 (Default IP Passthrough 0/24) to
networking equipment to Passthrough 3G/4G Internet to Ethernet.
