  4. Place a check in the box next to Enable Remote Admin Login.                                User-added image

  10. After the router reboot is complete connect to your CradlePoint for remote web administration.

NOTE:  To access the the router from the internet the IP address must be known.  A DynDNS account or static IP address issued by your cellular carrier or ISP will maintain knowledge of the routers address. 

To access the router from the Internet on a computer not on the CradlePoint router's LAN, enter the [IP address]:[port number] or [DynDNS]:[port number]  into a web browser address bar.  For example:

  • 172.22.96.125:8080

  • my-dyndns-info.com:8080
