1 Answer

I cannot access with my Macbook

I use a "Cradlepoint Router" and my phone as a modum for my WiFi when I am located in places that do not have Internet access.
My old phone (LG Musiq) died. I bought a new one, (LG lx290).
I have forgotten how to make the Cradlepoint connect, but when I call they need me to tell them what version I have... but I cannot get to to find out... it just keeps going... and going...and going... HELP?

You should be able to connect wirelessly from your Mac to your Cradlepoint router to obtain this information whether or not the phone is actually connected.
With your router powered up and operational, click the Airport icon on your top menu bar and turn your Airport on. Then click it again and watch for your Cradlepoint's wireless network name to appear. Using whatever WEP or WPA password you previously established, connect to the Cradlepoint.
Now under the Apple menu, choose System Preferences / Network. Select Airport, Advanced, then TCP/IP. (In releases other than Leopard, these choices may differ.) Look at the line marked "Router." That is the address you have to browse to in order to communicate with your Cradlepoint.

I can't connect my wii to my wifi

Using your computers wireless manager, or an ethernet cable if applicable, connect to the Cradlepoint router.

Open your browser and enter in the address bar of your browser.

Entering the last 6 characters of the MAC address will get you into the Admin level of the router.

Go to the Tools tab and select 'User Login' from the menu on the left of the screen.

Find 'Require User Login' and uncheck the box. (Earlier Firmware versions will find this box under the Basic tab, click 'wireless'.

Click 'Save Settings' at the top of the page, leave this page open as we will return to it later.

Turn on the power to your Wii

Now search for an access point on the Wii consoles main menu, just click on the Wii button in the lower left hand corner.

Now click on Wii Settings

Clicking on the blue arrow on the right side will take you to a second settings screen.

Select Internet, select Connection Settings, select None, select Wireless Connection, then 'Search for an Access Point'.

The Wii should search for wireless routers within range and display a list, choose your router from the list and click OK.

If you previously selected a security level for the router there will be a padlock icon next to the name and you must enter the same settings in the Wii that you entered into the Cradlepoint.

Click 'Save' and then click 'OK' but DO NOT choose OK to start a connection test!

Back on your computer, click on the Advanced tab on top and select Gaming from the menu on the left of the screen.

Under 'ADD GAME RULE' be certain that the 'Enable:' box is checked, and in the box next to 'Name:' type in "Nintendo Wii",

Next to 'TCP Ports to open:' type 80, 443, 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920 (exactly with commas)

Next to 'UDP ports to open:' type 1-65535 (exactly again). Click 'Save'

Return to your Wii and click on 'Choose OK to start a connection test'.

If you are still having difficulties (Wifi only), Nintendo tech support has recommended changing the channel of the router to either 1 or 11

I cannot access the router login page from my browser

links to various pdfs.
This one seems most likely to help:

does show '' as the browser-access URL.
Your browser isn't putting in 'https'?
Tried multiple browsers?
Rebooted your computer ("if in doubt, reboot", esp w Windows...)?

Hmm, only place the 'CP' designation shows up is on the EOL page. Vendor is likely to be no help...

Sounds like you have lost your internal IP address assignments.. I would suggest unplugging the power from your router for two min and shutdown your computers. Plug your router back in and let it cycle completely up before restarting your computer. This should restore your internal IP lease.

You may need to update the firmware on your CradlePoint. Newer firmware supports the release of new modems, which you might have a version of firmware on your CradlePoint that does not "know" your Time Warner USB stick.

Necessary equipment to create an Access Point using Sprint Card

Yes, you just need a Cradlepoint Router. The model you need just depends on the card you have. These routers convert your Sprint card to both Ethernet or WiFi internet that you can share with multiple computers / Wii / iPod Touch. See to see the 4 routers plus how-to videos, and Sprint aircard compatability lists.
