What's new?


We're making major changes to the firmware running on your IgniteNet wireless devices in order to make the existing features more robust. Please note that some features, such as WDS, bandsteering, and client probe request data push support, have not yet been re-integrated. Improved versions of these features will be included in an upcoming release. If you heavily rely on these features, we recommend to delay upgrading until the next formal release.
