Can somebody help me understand why the R700 is not supported by unleashed? It seems now to be the one mainstream indoor AP not supported. It's really frustrating it is not supported I am sure I am not the only one feeling this way.
Mark, I hear your pain. I too am a home user and got pretty excited when Ruckus came out with the Unleashed management platform. I had been studying the Ruckus Products for a few years dreaming of the day I could afford to install one in my home. Being on a tight budget, I eventually bought a few used R500 units on eBay and other sites on the web for around $50 each and was able to re-flash them with the Unleashed software and mesh them all together. Everything works just fine, and being that the Ruckus products are suppose to be "Commercial Grade" equipment, I fully expected that they would be functional and supported for quite a while on this Unleashed platform in my home. I run the entire house on internet based products including IP Phones (Google Voice running on an Obihai Obi-202 Device), TV's, Fire Sticks for streaming video, Cell Phones, Tablets and both Desktop and Laptop PC's. I do all of this on a simple 20 Mbps Down / 2 Mbps Up Comcast Cable Internet ONLY subscription using my own Motorola / Arris SB6141 Modem and TP-Link Routers with no issues. After getting everything setup and configured with Unleashed, everything works just fine and as expected. After only a couple of firmware updates from Ruckus, they announced they were dropping support in Unleashed for the R500, R600 and other older Access Points. So I'm stuck at my current version of Unleashed software, but since everything is working good, I'm not going to touch it. When it dies, I'll probably go find something else to use, but at the moment I'm pretty happy with it's performance. So in short, you may want to consider what I did and sell the R700 and pick up some R500 or R600 devices on the cheap and install the older build of Unleashed on them to address your home networking expansion challenges. I'm currently running version 188.8.131.52.94 of Unleashed, but it looks like there is a security upgrade version 184.108.40.206.118 available, so I'll likely roll that out soon. Hope this helps!
