Small installation with 5 iAP-104's. Working just fine for the last several months. Firmware upgraded to 184.108.40.206-220.127.116.11_48114 via Instant GUI. After upgrade, WiFi network becomes unstable and unusable after 12-36 hours. Unable to access Instant GUI when network fails. Only way to bring WiFi network back is to manually power cycle Master AP. Same problem occurs again in 12-36 hours. Nothing else changed on network.
Other threads here on Airheads forums that appear to document this issue:
I had to revert firmware to a previous version to bring network back to reliable operation. Not easy to do since you can't manually download any version of firmware unless you have a support contract. Maybe the Instant GUI should save a copy of the existing firmware before upgrade.
It looks like this is a known issue and has been so for a couple of weeks. Why is a firmware release still available with such a major bug? Pull it from release, fix it, and test the fixed version thoroughly before release. Is this too much to ask?
Does anyone know when a fixed version may be available?
