If you are unsure of which CradlePoint Series or Model number you have, please click here.This article was written based on firmware version 5.0.0 for Series 3 CradlePoint routers.Overview:Most GSM & LTE based networks require an Access Point Name or APN to be entered in the router to establish the final handshake between the carrier’s cell tower and the modem/aircard. You can find a list of commonly known APN’s by clicking here.  If you do not see your carrier in this list, but it is a GSM-based network, contact the carrier directly and ask which APN needs to be used.Refer to the two articles linked below for the instructions on entering the APN or AT Dial Scripts:

  • APN Instructions: Please consult this link for instructions of how to set the APN.
  • AT Dial Script Instructions:  These instructions are only to be used as a last resort, if the standard APN does not work. Click here to view the directions to enter AT Dial Commands, as well as some examples.
