I uploaded for u the release notes for 184.108.40.206 (read it - it got upgrade notes)
(first upgrade to 3.3 or 3.4) - and read the PDF :smileyhappy:
If you upgrade from 3.x > 5,x, the licenses will be converted for you.
Basically, they consolidated all licenses into 3 (there are a couple more now, but they are specific to service providers and content security).
The AP licenses stay as AP licenses.
The RAP licenses get converted to AP licenses (a RAP now consumes an AP licenses).
The PEF license is now called PEF-NG and is based on the number of APs you have, not users.
The WIP license is now called RFP (rf protect) and is based on the number of APs.
The following licenses have been rolled into one of the new licenses or the other: RAP, Voice Service module, and mesh (both outdoor and indoor).
let me know if u have any further questions.
have a lovely night.

10 APs for a house!!! I can see this house glow at night from my house
The 2400 controller only take PEF and WIP and it came with 48 AP licenses preload. At minimum, I’d like to have PEF, but heck, a 48 PEF license if probably cost your customer more than what he paid for his 2400 and 10 APs on EBay.
The base license is good enough for whatever your customer want to accomplish.
