Information

 
TitleFN-417 - AP7522, AP7532, AP7562 Component Change
Symptoms
The latest manufacturing revision of AP 7522, AP 7532, AP 7562 require WiNG 5.8.0 or higher software. The affected revision for each model is shown in the table below.
 
Affected product will ship with WiNG v5.8.6.5 which prevents downgrading lower than v5.8.0. New manufacturing revision product is expected to begin shipping from manufacturing in July 2017.  

 
Environment
The affected AP models and the manufacturing revision with the component change are listed in the table below.

Cause
ExtremeWireless WiNG AP-7532, AP-7522, AP-7562 have a NAND flash component that will be going end of life by end July 2017. The new NAND flash component is backward compatible to WiNG v5.8.0
  • The new NAND flash has been tested and qualified to meet performance and quality standards.
  • The new NAND flash will be rolled into manufacturing production when the existing NAND flash quantities run out.
  • WiNG v5.8.6.5 will be released to manufacturing and shipped on affected revisions of product. Review the WiNG v5.8.6.5 Release Notes for additional information on what is included in this firmware
  • WiNG v5.8.6.5 will prevent an access point from downgrading to a release prior to WiNG v5.8.0
Resolution
Only run WiNG v5.8.0 or later software on affected manufacturing revisions of AP 7532 or AP 7522 or AP 7562 (listed in table above).
 
An AP’s revision level can be found on the external box label, or on the regulatory label found on the back of the unit.
