    Good afternoon,

    Please tell me where I can download the firmware for the access point IAP-205-US

    Download from the site HP I can not, because I have not bought technical support.

     

    The access point I bought on ebay, I just want to update the firmware for home use of the access point.

    Check Video 12 on how to upgrade the Firmware:

    https://www.arubanetworks.com/products/networking/aruba-instant/instant-training/

     

    You have to have WWW Access with that IAP.

     

    Downloading the Software needs a valid support contract.

    The way as shown in the Video does not need a support contract.

    Hi,

     

    IMHO: For the Aruba Instant APs you can download the "Lifetime Warranty Software" without an existing support contract...but.... according to the 'aruba warranty and support summary':

     

    the warranty extends only for as long as the original end user owns the product

    Beside that, you can find the lifetime warranty software here:

    Absolutly true, no doubt!

    You have to go they way over the Instant AP and start the Firmware download from there.

    All Support Portals are password protected.

     

    Follow this instructions:

    https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/Instant_40_Mobile/Advanced/Content/UG_files/Basic_conf_tasks/Firmware_Image_Server_in.htm

     

    Section - Upgrading an IAP Using Automatic Image Check

     

    Therefore the IAP has to have Internet Access.

    Thanks a lot, I downloaded the update from here - https://support.arubanetworks.com/LifetimeWarrantySoftware/tabid/121/DMXModule/661/EntryId/33556/Default.aspx automatic update at the access point for some reason does not work.
