Release info on 2.9.5?
Hi there team,
I just got (and performed) the 2.9.5 release. Any info on it?
This was posted in the firmware updates help article:
Improved multicast IPTV performance
Band steering enhancements
Guest network enhancements
Firmware rollback feature added to web portal
Additional minor improvements
Thanks , looks like I have missed that !
Source where (I think) @Donte-Hymon found that:
https://help.amplifi.com/hc/en-us -> Documentation -> Firmware Release Notes
@shane-milton thanks . I guess I was just hoping to see some official information in here, too ️
@ubnt-brett Any love for the Teleport?
How long should the update take AMPLIFI off-line? Mine has been “updating” for 3 hours.
@carmine-granucci not yet
@bill-richardson ~5 minutes. It is ok at this point to power cycle the device. Please let me know what happens after you power cycle the device. I have seen this before and for some reason it just was "stuck" and had no further issues after a power cycle.
@ubnt-brett Is there an ETA on an update for Teleport?
@carmine-granucci No ETA as of yet, we are still currently working on the firmware.
Hi @ubnt-brett - Teleport firmware for UI, performance, or both?
@virgil-nicolae hello...how was your upgrade experience?...how is performance?...do all your features you're using still work properly?...im still sitting on 2.6.3 which runs/performs perfect and hesitate to move up...i have 2 routers (via backbone) plus 3 antennas in my mesh network...appreciate any technical insight
@rich-sammon Hi there,
Update process was smooth, without any particular issues (that I could notice, at least).
I haven't actually post much, but I'll take this opportunity to raise up some good and bad things, as much as I could see after approximately 6 month of usage.
Good things (and the main reason of purchase):
- good coverage of WiFi inside and outside of the house (basement, ground floor and 1st floor home, mainly wood and concrete)
- I'm using 2 AFI-HD units (ethernet linked) plus 2 Mesh points antennas (from which 1 router and Mesh points are enrolled in the Beta program)
- second router is used in the basement where I needed some "hardwired" connections
The system is performing generally ok with around 20 devices connected:
- Apple devices: 2 iPhones X, 2 AppleTV's, 1 iMac, 2 MacBooks, 1 HomePod and 1 iPad
- 2 Samsung TV's
- 2 printes
- 1 Syno NAS
- some Wifi speakers
- other IoT devices (Webcams, lights, etc)
I must honestly say that I haven't had any (or most) of the issues other people are raising in here, my system works pretty much ok (at least for my needs).
I'm having a fiber connection with 500 down / 50 up
ISP router is set in Bridge mode full (no interference there and no other limitations).
As speeds: I am mostly getting my ISP advertised speed (including via Wifi when I'm closed to any of the 2 AFI-HD's). Speed is considerably dropping when my phone is switched to a Mesh point (still connected as 2x2 - and sometimes just 1x1 my Tx is going down to some 6-7Mbit and sometime even Rx).
But, as somebody else mentioned in another post, Apple's devices are "hard" to please
Last week, my wife was complaining about that problem and I've decided to disconnect most of the Ethernet connections (for iMac, AppleTv's and MacBooks). Ever since that, Wifi connectivity and speeds have drastically improved without major (or visible) problems any longer.
I suspect that since QoS is prioritising the Ethernet connections over Wifi (and all hardwired devices were "eating" a lot of my bandwidth) that could be the reason.
Right now I have:
- k/v/A-MSDU enabled
- Hardware NAT disabled
Both routers and Mesh points are running the 2.9.5 firmware.
