Sprint / Netgear 341U USB Modem

The Netgear AirCard 341U modem requires an adapter (Proxicast part # ACC-USB-003) for compatibility with the LAN-Cell 3 or PocketPORT 2.

The Netgear 341U should have "IP Pass-Thru" mode enabled in its onboard firmware before using it in the LAN-Cell 3. Sprint has sold multiple firmware versions of the 341U modem. Some modems require an external tool to enable IP-Pass-Thru; for others, there is an option in the onboard 341U firmware's web interface. If necessary, download the Netgear Enterprise Tools for Windows: http://downloadcenter.netgear.com/en/Disclaimer.aspx?redirecturl=http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/aircard/AC341U Enterprise Tools v1_1.zip to obtain the mode change utilities.

On the LAN-Cell 3ís Setup>WAN screen, select "4G DirectIP Modems / Netgear / AirCard 341U" for reliable modem detection. New 341U firmware versions may require selecting "AirCard 341U V2". The 341Uís LCD screen may not correctly reflect the cellular connection status at all times.

PocketPORT 2 users with 341U modems running firmware earlier than NTG9X15C_45.04.10.00 r18196 uscbd-fwbuild1 2013/11/19 should run PocketPORT firmware 2.2.13.

This modem takes longer to initialize and register on the Sprint network than most other modems. Please allow up to 5 minutes for this process to complete.
