Nuevo Firmware Ubiquiti AirMax v5.5

Una excelente noticia para todos los WISP, el nuevo firmware v5.5 de la serie «M» Airmax trae muchas sorpresas y cambios muy solicitados. Entre ellas el poder agregar infinitos MAC address en un ACL y poder comentarlos o desactivarlos como lo hacemos con RouterOS. Tambien tenemos la actualizacion del kernel a una version superior.
Ademas también tenemos ahora la posiblidad de usar Airmax Client en todos los productos 802.11 a/b/g.

Creo que mas muchas de las funcionalidades agregadas son las que faltaban para que mas de uno se decida a utilizar Ubiquiti, e incluso migrar hacia ubiquiti.

- Improvement: Send NASID in Access-Request packet.
- Improvement: Add internal speed test tool to DMZ exemption ports
- Improvement: Hide Discovery Tool for read-only account
- Improvement: Extension for Port Forward configuration. Allow to specify Public IP

  1. Pues muy bonito el firmware pero nuevamente con el inconveniente de la desconexion en ethernet, hasta QUE SE REINICIA FÍSICAMENTE DE LA ENERGÍA. y se restablece la conexión.

    Así es que esperamos a que salga el Patch para solucionar esto que los moderadores de Ubiquiti nos informan

  2. Angel. Yo lo estoy usando y no he tenido ningun inconveniente. Quizas pueda ser el cable?. Algo que note es que toda la gama ubiquiti es muy sensible con respecto a ruidos y filtraciones en los cables ethernet que de hecho usas para llevar alimentacion y datos. Deberias probar con clable FTP de exterior. Slds.

  3. Hola Nico, respecto de modificar el acl sin reiniciar el equipo para evitar la desconeccion de todos los clientes, has logrado hacerlo por ssh? tengo tres ubnt repartiendo con los misma configuración en la parte inalámbrica, y quiero automatizar la asignación de clientes a uno u otro sector…. te agradezco algún dato al respecto, un abrazo..Ariel
