What steps do I take to activate my Clear CradlePoint Modem?

COR IBR650W
Clear 4G WiMAX

A wireless broadband data plan must be added to your COR IBR650W router. A new line of service can be added or a data plan can be transferred from an existing account. Wireless broadband data plans are made available from Clear, and are required to allow your modem to connect and transfer data on their network


To add or transfer a broadband data plan, or to check if your modem has a broadband data plan attached, contact you Clear representative and provide them with the IBR650W model number and WiMAX MAC Address from the product.

VERIFY THE CARRIER REALM

The IBR650W defaults to the Clear network realm. If it has been changed, you will need to revert your WiMAX realm back to Clear

1) Connect the computer to the CradlePoint router with an Ethernet cable
2) Open a browser window and type http://192.168.0.1 in the address bar. Press enter/return.
3) When prompted, enter your password, default is the last eight characters of your MAC address found on the product label.
4) Click First Time Setup Wizard and follow the steps.  When you get to the WiMAX realm selection pick Clear.
