New firmware incompleet/incorrect/vague release notes (2.4.0 Build 20200117 Rel. 39932)
2020-03-05 09:18:21
Model: EAP245
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 2.3.1 Build 20191029 Rel. 61589

Hi community,

Today I checked for new firmware releases and discoverd that a new version is available for my EAP245's: '2.4.0 Build 20200117 Rel. 39932'.
Unfortunatly the release notes are incompleet/incorrect/vague, they say: "the release note save at the path of software installation package".

Checking the firmware section for the EAP245 on the tp-link website doesn't give me more info since the package for '2.4.0 Build 20200117 Rel. 39932' is not available.

I'm not going to upgrade the firmware without knowing the changes it is going to apply to my network.

Does this info help: https://www.tp-link.com/en/support/download/eap245/v3/#Firmware ?

 

EAP245(US)_V3_200117
Published Date: 2020-03-04 Language: English File Size: 8.07 MB

Recommended Controller Software Version: Omada Controller v3.2.6 or above

 

New Feature/Enhancement:

1. Change the mechanism that the IP configuration in Standalone mode will be retained after the EAP is adopted by the Controller.

2. Add anti-brute force cracking mechanism that you cannot login to the EAP via SSH or webserver in two hours if you fail to login up to 30 times in half an hour.

3. Optimize NTP server to support domain name.

4. Change the “Term of Service” of portal settings page in standalone mode as unchecked by default.

5. Optimize the Fast Roaming to improve the roaming experience of clients.

6. Optimize the UI of SSID and Free Authentication Policy in Standalone mode.

7. Optimize the DNS resolution process of EAP to avoid parsing wrong IP.

8. Reduce the time interval to 5s and limit the size to 2k bytes of the More Client Detail Log in Log Settings.

 

Bug Fixed:

1. Fixed the bug that the Max TX rate of 5G band in Standalone mode may display wrong value.

2. Fixed the bug that the EAP may hang after clicking save in wireless VLAN page in Standalone mode.

3. Fixed the bug that the EAP may hang if scanning rogue AP in high frequency.

4. Fixed the bug that when adding an SSID with no password and change the encryption mode to WPA on Omada APP, the clients can still connect to the SSID without password.

5. Fixed the bug that External Radius Server portal page may not pop up in some clients.

 

Notes:

1. For EAP245 v3 only.

2. Your device's configuration won't be lost after upgrading.

3. This version of firmware is applied to Omada APP of version 2.1.X or above.

4. You cannot downgrade if you upgrade from the firmware released in 2018 or earlier to this version directly.

@joeri1 

 

For the EU version, the release note is the same as US. 

By the way, where did you see the incomplete release note? Please tell us, thank you.
