Hi Marcel, My company has 8 IAP-105 that apparently haven't been updated since 2014 when they were first installed. They're running version 6.2 which dates back to 2012 according to the platform support matrix posted by Greg Thiesen in this thread. I would like to upgrade to the latest version you just linked to but I'm honestly pretty nervous about it. Should I expect everything to still work after the update? it seems like such a huge jump and I'm not sure what I would/could do if something went wrong. I have backed up my config in the event of a problem but I assume that would only be useful if I also was able to revert to the very old version of the firmware I'm currently running (but don't have an image for).The network is running ok but I have some newer Windows laptops that I can't seem to get connected. We're just running very basic WPA-2 Personal security so it's a very a rudimentary (and likely insecure) configuration. After entering the passphrase Windows just says "Can't connect to this network" without any details as to why. I've done the basic Network Reset on the devices that can't connect but not much beyond that. I sincerely appreciate any guidance you might have. Thank you!
Hi Herman,Thank you so much for the reply. If I disconnect one of the APs and then upgrade the rest of them to the newest firmware, would I later be able to, in the event that something went wrong with the update, deploy the old firmware and configuration using the unit that was powered off when I upgraded the rest? I have also downloaded a copy of my current firmware from the support portal. If I have that and a copy of my current config backup am pretty safe to upgrade? As long as there is a reasonable path to rolling things back I think I'll go ahead with the firmware update tonight.We do plan to upgrade our hardware this summer now that we know these units are EOL but we need to get through our current peak season first. I'm hoping the firmware upgrade will solve some of the connectivity issues we've had with newer laptops.Thank you!
