I believe previously this AP is controller managed. You need to use standalone AP firmware to use it standalone mode.

The first version is a ZoneDirector firmware image (9.8.3.x.x), as all Solo/Standalone AP images will start with a 100 series, like 104.x.x.x.x, or similar.

Hello Bart,

Have you extracted the image from the ZIP file ? Can you please make sure you are uploading the image (.bl7 extension) and not the ZIP file?

Best Regards

Correct as Gupta and Thomas mentioned, you need to flash the AP to the latest standalone version which is 10x.x.x.x

104 is more new then 9.8.3

104 is also a firmware version that can be used standalone, and as code to connect to vSZ/SZ/SCG or to ZD. it has both controller clients in it.

So either one will do for my set is that correct?
Is there a good guide to follow or tweaking to get all Ruckus experience?
