Update APDevices
With the release of Fireware v11.12.1, we are also releasing new APfirmware for AP100/102, AP200, and
AP300 devices. The process to update to new APfirmware changed recently. Please review this section
carefully for important information about updating AP devices.
Update your AP100, AP102, and AP200 Devices
Fireware v11.12.1 includes new AP firmware v1.2.9.11 for AP100/102 and AP200 devices. If you have enabled
automatic AP device firmware updates in Gateway Wireless Controller AND you upgrade from Fireware
v11.10.4 or later to Fireware v11.12.1, your AP devices are automatically updated between midnight and
4:00am local time. You can also see and use the new feature to check for and download AP firmware updates
to Gateway Wireless Controller for future updates.
If you upgrade from Fireware v11.10.3 or lower to Fireware v11.12.1, there is an additional step you must take
to make sure AP v1.2.9.11 is applied to your APdevices. When you upgrade to Fireware v11.12.1 with
Fireware Web UIor Policy Manager, you must do the upgrade process twice. From the Gateway Wireless
Controller > Summary tab, select Manage Firmware to download the latest AP firmware to the Firebox.
If you reset your Firebox to factory-default settings, the APfirmware is removed from the Firebox. From the
Gateway Wireless Controller > Summary tab, select Manage Firmware to download the latest AP firmware
to the Firebox again.
You cannot install the AP firmware on a Firebox that uses Fireware v11.4.x or lower. If you try
to install the APComponent Package on a Firebox that uses Fireware v11.4.x or lower, the
package appears to install successfully, but the AP firmware is not installed and log messages
show that the packet installation was aborted.
Update Your AP300 Devices
Fireware v11.12.1 includes AP firmware v2.0.0.6. If you have enabled automatic AP device firmware updates
in Gateway Wireless Controller AND you upgrade from Fireware v11.10.4 or later to Fireware v11.12.1, your
AP devices will be automatically updated between midnight and 4:00am local time. You can also see and use
the new feature to check for and download AP firmware updates directly from Gateway Wireless Controller.
If you upgrade from Fireware v11.10.3 or lower to Fireware v11.12.1, there is an additional step you must take
