6. 6 Getting Started 1. Connect the Router to a Modem / Data Source. Keep the router in the OFF position until the modem is securely connected. Connect a CradlePoint Business-Grade Modem or a supported USB or ExpressCard modem to the router in the appropriate port or slot. Your modem will require an active subscription from your service provider. If you have not already done so, add a service plan to your Integrated Business-Grade Modem by contacting your service provider. You will need the modem identifier (IMEI or MEID) and the ID from your SIM card/ UICC. See page 8 for SIM card/UICC installation instructions. For Ethernet WAN, connect a Cable or DSL modem to the blue Ethernet WAN port. 2. Connect the WiFi and Modem Antennas. Attach the three included WiFi and optional modem antennas to the connectors. Antennas are jointed, which enables you to position them for optimal WiFi broadcast. To attach, hold the antenna straight and twist the base of the antenna to connect, folding the joint if needed. Please note that 2.4 GHz antennas are provided. 5 GHz antennas are available as accessories. 3. Connect to a Power Source. Connect the router to the provided power supply (12V DC Wall Adapter). When you flip the power switch to the ON ( I ) posi - tion, watch for the appropriate modem LED to illuminate. Ensure the connected modem LED is lit with a solid green light, which indicates that the modem is properly connected. For other LED states, please see descriptions on pages 10 and 11.
