Additional notes
  • All configuration, logs, statistics will be wiped out from memory. It will maintain on both boot partitions the previous installed firmware.
  • Default VLAN1 configuration will be assigned to physical port(s) in access mode.
  • All radios will be turned off as no WLAN / country code is assigned.
  • In advanced topology it can result in connectivity loss.
  • Defaulted devices will be allowed to search for MiNT neighbors via Layer2 (vlan) and Layer3 (IP).
  • Sometimes it happens that there is no Zero IP address under VLAN interface. Verify the presence of ip address zeroconf secondary under the default used VLAN within device default profile.
