We use Exede Internet for most things around the house.  I use a 4G mifi for VPN for work during emergencies.  I'm curious if anyone is using a Cradlepoint router with their Exede service?  Currently we have a Linksys WRT54GL - no issues with it but a few other posts seem to indicate the Exede service can be picky about the wireless routers behind the modem.

Connecting directly to the mifi for work is fine but it's a bit of a pain to have to connect back and forth to get access back to my home network resources at the same time.  Cradlepoint would offer the option to failover Internet between the mifi and satellite (when the mifi is powered on) and I get to keep access to my home network all the same.  I realize most wireless routers are capable of doing this to a certain extent via AP mode however I'm not interested in having to log in to the router and change the configuration to bridge mode for connecting to the mifi.

Thanks in advance for any input.

Yes, I have been using the Cradlepoint MBR95 router for the past year with no problems. Previously, I too had been using the Lynksys WRT54G, but on occasions it would act a little flaky, so I switched to the Cradlepoint.
