  • 1.  Flashing Firmeware to AP with out switch/Changing Region

    Posted 13 days ago
    I see with previous Aruba gear there were steps to safely change regions with a firmware change. Is that possible with the InstantON products or is it hardware based?


    We have one AP in the mix that ended up being (RW) vs (US) with all the price fluctuation they are being difficult on returns.

    You can only change the region with RW APs, It is my understanding that you can't use RW APs in US due to legal reasons.

    Thanks for the reply! Is there documentation on this anywhere? Still trying to understand if the region is a firmware base lock or hardware.

    Firmware is hardware locked to the region by design and by legal requirements. The details how it is done are not published. For us users it is important to know, that we can't change region on country specific models of APs.

    RW APs do not have region defined and need to be selected at installation/setup time.

    Thanks for the details and confirmation. Just wanted to check as I see online for other Aruba APs there is some hash/firmware flash method to switch certain APs. I admit it would much easier if we were shipped the right device. I will continue to work with vendor for a proper solution,.
