Beginning with firmware version 4.3.2, certain Cradlepoint modems have the ability to receive modem firmware updates over the Internet connection of the Cradlepoint router. This applies only to the following products; MC400LPE-VZ, MC400LPE-AT, MC300LE-VZ, MC300LP-AT, MC200LE-VZ, MC200LP-AT, IBR600LE-VZ, IBR600LP-AT on Verizon or AT&T networks.

The modem will now go through the following stages as it applies the modem firmware.
After the firmware is applied, the router will reboot and the modem will reconnect (this process can take a few minutes). A double check of the firmware should show it has been updated and no longer show an update available.
