NEW!  Modem-SAFE Multi-Function Mounting Base for the LAN-Cell 3

LAN-Cell 3 Modem-SAFE Mounting Base

As of February 1, 2013, all new LAN-Cell 3 routers include a free Modem-SAFE mounting base.  The Mode-SAFE mounting base replaces the Modem-LOCK base which was included with earlier shipments. The Modem-SAFE base offers several advantages:

  • USB modems are stowed under the LAN-Cell 3 to reduce the overall device footprint and to protect the USB modem from unwanted removal or accidental damage.
  • Button protectors can be installed to prevent the power and reset buttons from being pressed accidentally.
  • Router, wall and deck mounting positions match the Modem-LOCK base so the bases are interchangeable.
  • Additional antenna mounting points have been added.

Both the Modem-SAFE and Modem-LOCK mounting bases are available for purchase to retrofit your existing LAN-Cell 3 routers.
