Internet Service Provider (ISP) recommends setting a static WAN IP.


Some ISP's require static IP settings to be configured in the router.

  1. Confirm that the ISP requires static WAN IP settings by contacting the ISP (typically ISP’s do not require these settings).
  2. Disconnect your static WAN source from the CradlePoint router.
  3. Log into the routers administration page (login instructions).
  4. Click on the BASIC Tab
  5. Click on WAN on the menu to the left.                                                                                             User-added image
  1. Scroll down to the Wired Wan Settings box, Under Internet Connection Select Static IP.  In the fields below that, input the information provided by your ISP.                                                                           User-added image
  2. Scroll to the top of the page, and click to Save Settings and then Reboot Now when prompted.
  3. Connect your Static Wan connection to the Blue Port on the CradlePoint
  4. Allow at least 2 minutes for the device to establish a connection

If you still cant connect after 5 minutes, unplug the Static WAN connection from the blue port of the CradlePoint, then power off the CradlePoint for 10 seconds, then power it back on.  After about 2 minutes (once the Cradlepoint stabilizes and has fully rebooted) replug in the Static WAN connection into the CradlePoint's Blue Port and wait an additional 5 minutes for the connection to establish.
