Default Cradlepoint tethering issues...

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I have a cradlepoint Mbr-1000 3g router tethered to my Blackberry Curve 8330. Heres what happens... I plug my BB into the router via usb. The internet works on my laptop for approx. 1 minute and then it stops working. I then I have to pull the battery on my BB and let it reset just so it will connect to the internet again. The phone works fine when connected directly to my laptop but after it's been connected to the router it wont work anymore until reset. Any ideas? I hope this is the right place for this post.
oh and I have updated the router firmware and I have the latest desktop version. I tired installing newest software on my BB but it wouldnt take for some reason. Im sure I had the correct version and all of that too...

Thanks-
Tee

Default 8330 software incompatible with CradlePoint at this time

Tee,

I am assuming you have looked at the CradlePoint web page and noticed this foot not on your BB model.

"3 - The Blackberry models listed are only tested to work on phone software 4.2.x and previous. Later versions may have problems connecting to the CradlePoint router."

If you are still on a phone software version lower than 4.2.x which is doubtful then you should be able to connect without any problems. If you are on a higher phone software version past 4.2.x then you will have to wait for CradlePoint to fix the issue. If you do have an older phone software version before the versions not supported please post that as well as your carrier and I can try to give you some pointers in how I have my BB setup. Thanks and good luck!!
