*Controller support may vary/ pending.


NOTE: You may start to see EVT_AP_RestartProc events in the controller log. If you see these, please report if there is anything specifically in your setup that triggers the events. The processes restarting is not new, but the reporting of the restarting is, and we are using these reports to clean up these issues.


IMPORTANT NOTE: For users with UAP, UAP-LR, UAP-OD, UAP-OD5 on 3.9.37/38. You will need to set the WLAN group to off to be able to upgrade these models from 3.9.37/38 to another release (3.9.39 or otherwise). If the problem still persists after disabling the WLAN group, then you may need to disable the uplink connectivity monitor. Please be mindful when disabling the uplink connectivity monitor as that will also disable wireless uplinks, which will disconnect your APs. If that happens you will need physical access to wire the APs to your network.




Any and all feedback is welcome, including lettings us know about successful device upgrades. When reporting an issue, please ensure that you include the following information:

  1. Controller version.
  2. Firmware version (previous and current). 
  3. Device model(s). 

Links are all HTTPS. This assumes your device(s) are currently running at least 3.7.51, and that the device's date is properly set (i.e. it can reach a NTP server). If you encounter issues with the upgrade, or your device isn't on a minimum supported firmware, then you can change the link to HTTP before performing the upgrade.
