zf7363 firmware update issues

I found a Ruckus 7363 laying around that was bought by my predecessor. It had never been taken out of the box, so I figured I'd configure it and try it out. The first thing I wanted to do is update the firmware, so I configured a local tftp server (there was no local update option in the old version) with the latest FW (9.7.0.0.220) and I edited an image control file. The firmware updated fine and the AP rebooted.

now when I try to configure a static IP, mask and gateway, and press the update settings button, it says "WAN/Data Network: the IPv4 address field is improper or empty".

also there are several places that where I press the update settings button and nothing happens. For instance, under radio 2.4g; when I configure "wireless 1", and try to update the settings, nothing happens. I downgraded to 9.6.2.0.13 and still have the issues. I cant remember what the version was before I updated.
Is this thing a brick now?

Glad to hear you found the workaround. We, like many products, have a troubled relationship with IE...

On Demand TV - we have exactly the same problem. I have updated a 7363 access point to firmware 9.7.
We can not make any changes to 2.4 or 5Ghz Wi-Fi settings. For instance, under radio 2.4g; when I configure "wireless 1", and try to update the settings, nothing happens.
What now? We need to demo the 7363 for a BIG customer?

Just chiming in.... in Chrome, I cannot edit my 7363 group to actually use the 7363 option in Model Specific Control. I can set it to 7363, but after clicking Ok, the change is lost.

Also slightly offtopic chiming in re Lonnie.



Have seen this behaviour (unable to set AP model from dropdown list) from purchase over a year ago. It resolved itself with a combination of f/w 9.6 and circa chrome 27 in September 2013 for me. I cannot be more specific, Sorry.

Now on f/w 9.7 and chrome 32 all as should be.

On Demand TV - Seems to me Microsoft IE has a problem updating "wireless 1" settings. I have tried Google Chrome but Chrome does not even log in. Then we tried Opera - and voila - it worked.

Have not tried Firefox yet.
