I am suffering, as we all are, from the lack of a stable firmware version for the Rocket M900.
I have in my posession a radio loaded with 5.6.11. That version seemed to be stable, before I upgraded the rest of the units in my network and ruined reliability for all my customers.
My question: Is it possible to copy this version to my PC using WinSCP or something? I just want the .bin file so I can downgrade all my radios to that version again...
I tried for a moment with WinSCP but the firmware folder on the radio seemed to be empty except for 5 hidden files...which then dissapeared from view when I asked to show them. If anyone knows if this can be done, please share how...

I have tested many versions and v5.6.15 is one of them. It is more stable than some but I still suffer from random reboots at night and the early morning.
I wish I had not tried to upgrade the older radios as they had no problems prior. Could you send me an older revision of firmware?

Download the firmware here:
Click on "See Past Firmware" and look for 5.6.15 signed for your processor type.
Look at this link for instructions on how to force firmware with a TFTP client.
I use one called tftp2.
I think it can still be downloaded from here:
Scroll down and click on tftp2.exe
I hope this helps!

I should clarify - the radios simply loose connectivity, even though they have stable links otherwise. I am being forced to use Ping Watchdog because of this, and the reboots restore my connection every time.
Whatever this bug is doing, the result is a systematic loss of wireless peership for no apparent reason. Seems to be very well documented and universally experienced by other users
