Wireless Router and Sierra Wireless Lightning

How do you get the USB Connect Lightning to automatically connect to the internet when you plug it into a wireless router (cradlepoint CTR35)?  I've tried changing the hardware setting on the AT&T device connection options to automatic and on the wireless router both.  Neither have worked for the wireless router, just when I plug direct into laptop.  Thanks in advance for your help.

The connection should be pretty much plug and play.  Unless you have the modem programmed to require a password or something, it should just connect. 

 

You might need to do a hard reset to return the settings to default.  Instructions can be found here:

If that doesn't get you any joy, contact whomever you bought the router from.
