If it works out of the box in Cradlepoint then it may be your only option.
UML295 is currently not supported in any dd-wrt version and there is no plan to include it in a near future.
Support for this kind of device which isn't a 3G dialup modem but a 3G direct ethernet adapter is difficult in a router - this is a typical desktop device needing either the mfgrs original connection manager or access to dongles internal webserver pages.
There is no consistent usage of webserver url's between mfgrs of this kind of device, some of the pages/url's are even hidden or "secret". _________________ I'm on a whiskey diet, lost 3 days already

I found this thread from google searching for routers that support UML295... I currently have a UML295 plugged into a Cradlepoint MBR95. I bought a Netgear AC1450 (same hardware as R6300v2) and figured it could plug it to the cradlepoint with IP passthrough and move on with my life...
Turns out that the cradlepoint doesn't have IP passthrough! >.< Their cheapest model with that feature is like $300 and i can't see myself paying $300 for an intermediate device that does nothing but basically interfaces my USB modem to my network. Peplink, the second most popular 3G/4G router company, has a model that does IP passthrough for ONLY $499!
I will check out that router you linked because the specs do say it supports IP passthrough. Quite a shabby website with very poor grammar/spelling though.
Quite a shabby website with very poor grammar/spelling though.
That's what you get when a Chinese company opens a website for peddling their goods onto the US/CA market.
There is no company address or company registration info, no "About us", just a toll free number which most
likely is routed to China.
No support page for download of updated firmware, no GPL source code offer which is a breach of the Linux license.
The Mifi is, from what I've been told, not FCC approved.
The origin of this construction is AMIT Taiwan who sells it under their own brand name Zalip and they also
manufacture it for TrendNet, D-Link, Zoom, and Aluratek, companies who do customer support and who also have an
FCC approval for their model names.
It is a standard RaLink RT3050/52 construction combined with a good 3G support firmware written by AMIT.
The modem support list from Mofi is the same as for the known-brand versions, even spelling mistakes and
Chinese translation errors match..
So based on this I would rather buy a D-Link DWR-116 or DIR-510L than the Mofi.
I would really love it if i could just simply plug the UML295 directly to the Netgear with DD-WRT and live happily ever after..
It may be possibble but you'll have to do it manually without dd-wrt gui support, I think the cdc_ether driver is included in the dd-wrt build
and check in dmesg if you get a new wan device. _________________ I'm on a whiskey diet, lost 3 days already
