Troubleshooting

I can no longer access the administrative pages of the Cradlepoint

When changing the UID:"lan" VLAN interface to a WAN port will remove administrative access to the Cradlepoint if step 2 through step 4 were not followed. The IP address to access the Cradlepoint has changed when following the above steps and you will need to navigate to https://192.168.10.1 to access the administrative pages. If you still are not able to access the Cradlepoint you will probably have to factory reset the device.

Troubleshooting

If you are not able to get your hard-wired internet WAN to connect, you might have to statically set the WAN interface, please follow this KB.
