The MBR95 Wireless N Home Router provides a simple and secure way to add high-speed networking to the home. Designed specifically for multimedia, gaming and home computers, the MBR95 shares a Cable, DSL or 3G/4G Internet connection throughout the home wirelessly at 802.11 N speeds or through any of the four ethernet ports.

Supported devices include PCs, laptops, Macs, iPads, DVRs, gaming systems, cameras, printers and VoIP phones. To provide a safe networking environment, the MBR95 provides a wide variety of security features to prevent unwanted access, and robust content filtering to prevent children from accessing undesirable web content.

*Compatibility with all WiFi networks cannot be guaranteed. Networks requiring authentication on a "splash page" (e.g. Starbucks WiFi) in particular can be hit or miss.


  • Wireless “N” WiFi (802.11n + legacy 802.11b/g, 2x2 MIMO, 300 Mbps)
  • Average of 100-150' of WiFi range
  • Supports up to 32 WiFi Connections at a Time

Ever since I have owned this router it has rebooted on large data transfers either just from ethernet port to ethernet port or from WiFi to ethernet or from Internet to ethernet. Cradlepoint Tech supports response is "get a better model" and recommended the MBR2100 at $1000. I didn't see any disclaimer on the specification that says "won't support the actual 100mB rate sustained for more than n minutes." I also had to pay $29 for them to tell me to buy another modem and then wouldn't refund it. Definitely I would not buy again.

Little or no effort to install. Almost ready out of the box. I've used Cradlepoint before(the last 8 years) and have no trouble with either one. Only bought the new one because of technology improvements. 4 G wasn't around 8 years ago and the new modem I needed to use was 4 G. Very pleased with the router and would recommend to any individual or small business.

Simple to use and set up if you don't need VPN features.

Works right out of the box. Only changes I made was to the password and to play with the Wireless WAN settings.

Purchased my new MBR95 Router in December. It is my 2nd 3G/4G Cradlepoint Router and is not a replacement for my old router, but a supplement to. Wanted to be able to jump in my Motor Home and go without moving the other one which is used at home and connected to the TV and a Cable Modem. This way all I have to do is grab my wireless modem and go. Am currently on the road and enjoying great service from the MBR95. It was easy to set up and comforting to know that the 3G Store is there to back me up if needed. Had one question on my older router and well after warranty had expired, I called for help. The 3G Store treated me as if I were a new customer calling to make a purchase.

If I have a need for something that the 3G Store sells, they will be my first place to look when I am ready to purchase.

I would give the 3G Store and Cradlepoint both.... 5 Stars

I had been looking for a router for a long time that would support my mobile broadband modem. I found everything that I wanted in a router in this Cradlepoint MBR95. I have both my IMAC and MACBOOK laptop set up running with this router and they are working great. My internet speed has not slowed down at all. The signal reaches all rooms in our home. I also set up my printer to the router. All are working great. The best part is that I did all the connecting myself. I am not a computer wizerd and it set up easy by following the steps that came in the box. I am a 69 year old grandma, I think that says it all. I did call customer service once after it was all hooked up with a question on one of the display LED lights. Customer service was great and answered my question vey well and made sure that I understood. Great Router I love it.

The product works as advertised and the service is great. Already brought more devices and will continue to buy in the future. Customer service answered all my questions. Keep up the good work!

I have had two other routers in the past, and they did not work as well as this router. I am using a 3 G USB modem from Verizon. Two things I noticed was that my speed did not degrade using this router. Other routers that I used in the past, my speed would drop VS when I used a direct connection. Also this router runs cool. The cheaper routers I had in the past ran much hotter. They failed after about one year of use. This router also shows your 3 G signal so you can place the router in the best location for the best 3 G signal.

I ordered a Cradlepoint router from the 5GStore after reading several reviews. My order came to my house very quickly even though I only paid for ground shipping. Once I un-boxed the router it was easy to get in service and has performed as advertised. I am very happy with the entire experience.

The Cradlepoint router was very easy to set up and begin use. It has been rock solid in its performance to date. I am pleased with the MBR95 and 5Gstore's support.
