EAP225 outdoor firmware update
2020-12-09 13:12:35
Model: EAP225-Outdoor  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.20.0 Build 20200422

 

Good day,

 

Today i got a notification for the update of my 2 EAP225 outdoor in a mesh setup. I didn't do the update as i don't know what it is for and i searched the tp link website for information about the firmware update and got nothing.

I hope anyone can give a link to it. 

Why the big skip from 1.20.0 to Version 5.0.0?

Thanks in advance 🙂

It looks like my EAP225-OD updated it's firmware automatically at about 10:38am this morning.  Currently running version 5.0.0.  Seems to be working.

Someone in the SDN subforum mentioned their 225 non outdoor updated to 5.0 also.

Release notes would be nice.

 

Still nothing on the firmware download page

I'm not seeing any updates for my 245's yet.  They often lag the 225's a bit.

@JhonneL 

 

Yup, did a rolling update with my 2 EAP225's a few hours ago. It went smoothly and they're by far functioning good. Still monitoring for any hiccups.

 

I hope tp link will release change log soon.

https://www.tp-link.com/en/support/download/eap225/#Firmware Looks like the 225 changelog is posted to the worldwide site. I assume the outdoor change log is the same

Hello I just want to share my experienced and observation for my closed yes upgrade for my 12 EAP225 Outdoor :) so far within several hours or almost 24 hours, I noticed an improvement there are much reduced on the dropped properties report shows in the dashboard for almost 75 percent for ALL EAP Outdoor after the upgrade of my firmware. It also shows an improvement from the retried statistics in all EAP if before it shows or report around 40% in level it down to 10 or 5% in average for retried, where the dropped statistics shows all in the floor flat average of 5000 + only from before almost 20K stats of dropped on each EAP property.

How are all of you getting updates pushed to your devices?  Are all of you cloud linked?

Hello,

 

So far, in my experience, wireless MESH speeds also seem to be improved with the new firmware.  I have an EAP225-OD running version 5.0.0 firmware which is wirelessly connected to a hardwired EAP245V3 running the current version (2.21.0) firmware.

 

Broadband speed testing (I have Gigabit FIOS/FTTH) from my iPhone XSM (associated with the Outdoor AP) has improved from ~140-170 Mbit/sec DL & UL to 190-210 Mbit/sec!

 

Also, FYI, I found (historically) that the MESH'ed 225OD performs better connected to the 3x3 EAP245V3 versus my prior 2x2 EAP225V3 -- most likely due to reduced conflicts with other clients and MU-MIMO optimizations.

 

When I first deployed my EAP225-OD some 6 months ago, I was only getting ~100 Mbit/sec DL & UL.  But since upgrading from 225's to 245's, MESH'ing with my lesser used AP, and upgrading to the 5.0.0 firmware my speeds have doubled.  Fantastic.

 

-Jonathan
