This router, when attached to a Sierra USB wireless card, works amazingly well. When connected to the Sprint/Clearwire 4g network, the connection to websites is instantaneous. Setup was easy. Wonderful Router.

Works great with my AT&T Lightning modem!

by Zanshin on 9/13/2010

In looking for a mobile router I found a great deal. In researching it, I saw nothing but negative reports but purchased it anyway since it was a great deal,$40 and worth the risk since I could return it. After a week of trying to get it to work, I returned it and researched my particular modem. Although there are always some bad comments, people always complain more than they praise in these forums, I found some rather good comments so, I decided to give it a try. The unit worked great straight out of the box! I did immediately download and install the latest firmware and have been very happy with it's performance. Previously, when connected directly to my laptop, it would occasionally disconnect from the internet. That required me to manually disconnect and reconnect through the managing software that came with the modem. Now, my router automatically reconnects whenever the internet is dropped. Much quicker than the manual method I had to use before. Feature wise, it is the best router I've ever owned. Although I've never tried it, it has the capability to use DSL or Cable modems as it's primary internet connection while automatically falling back on the USB modem when the other connection fails. Again, I don't know how well it works with DSL or Cable but I highly recommend it for use with the Lightning modem.

Product Overview

The MBR900 bridges the wired and wireless worlds seamlessly.

It features the broadest support of mobile broadband data modems available on the market today, and has easily upgradable firmware for future technology advances.

Built with advanced data throughput management for wired services (Cable, T1, or DSL) as well as mobile broadband, your WiFi network has never been more flexible at such a affordable price.

The MBR900 is essentially two routers in one.

Ready to be used with an active 3G/4G mobile broadband device, it supports ethernet-based data connections as well.

You can use both wired and wireless together to create a redundant internet connection.

When your wired data service is interrupted, the MBR900 will automatically connect to an attached active data modem within 30 seconds - keeping you connected and online.

Once your wired service is restored, the MBR900 will automatically failback to your primary connection - minimizing the time you’re connected to the data modem.

The MBR900 is the perfect solution to keep your business flowing.

Powered by WiPipe™ technology, the MBR900 includes many features found in expensive, enterprise -class routers at a fraction of the cost. No software to load and minimal setup means you’ll be up and running in minutes.

The MBR900 comes standard with top security features like multiple concurrent VPN pass-through sessions, encryption modes including WEP, WPA/WPA2/WPA2Enterprise and a firewall which prevents unauthorized use of your connection.

Confidently and securely access the Internet and share your data connection with up to 30 people or devices.
