Release Notes

 

New Feature/Enhancement

 

1. Added support for the following new features which were added on Omada Controller v5.9.

  • Added support for shared bandwidth while using the "SSID Rate Limit" feature.
  • Added support for IPv6 ACL/URL Filtering/Guest Network.
  • Added support for IPv6 dial-up/Client address acquisition/MLD to unicast.                                       
  • Added support for LLDP (Link Layer Discovery Protocol).         
  • Added support for the Network Check.

Select an Omada EAP and perform a ping or traceroute test to check the network connectivity.                                    

  • Added support for Packet Capture. 

Select an Omada EAP, set the capture filter, and perform a packet capture for troubleshooting. Omada Controller uses TCP port 29815 to download the packets.

  • Added support for Terminal.

Select an Omada device (EAP or Switch), open Terminal, and then you can execute CLI or Shell commands. Omada Controller uses TCP port 29816 to create remote control terminall sessions with the devices.

  • Added support for downloading device info.

Omada Controller uses TCP port 29815 to receive the information from the devices. You can download a device's info by opening its Properties window, going to Config > Manage Device, and clicking Download. This feature helps to confirm the operational status of Omada devices and to perform troubleshooting.

  • Added support for the "Lock To AP" feature.

Open a client's Properties window, go to Config, enable the function, and select one or multiple EAPs, then the client will be locked to the selected EAPs. This feature helps prevent a static client from roaming frequently between multiple EAPs.

  • Added support for RADIUS username report.

When the SSID is configured with WPA-Enterprise authentication, the username used by the wireless client will be displayed in the 802.1X Authentication column of the Clients page.

2. Added support for some remaining new features on some EAP devices, which were added on controller v5.8 and earlier.

  • EAP610 v3, EAP613 v1

    • Added support for PPSK function in Controller mode.

    • Added support for Band Steering.

  @Hank21 The firmware update didn't work on my EAP670 v1.26. After upgrade it remained disconnected from the controller. Trying to access the AP directly through a direct Ethernet connection through the IP address 192.168.0.254 would cause it to power off and on.

Edit (Aug 2nd): Turns out i might have had a bad AP to begin with. Previous was a refurbished. After i got a new one, the beta firmware went through without an issue and it's been stable for about 7hrs now.

Just wanted to give people trying these updates a heads up. I was running previous beta firmwares with PPSK working in controller mode, and pushed the updates from the controller (mbentley container, v5.9.31):

 

EAP650 v1, 1.0.6 build 20220921 > 1.0.9 build 20230717

EAP655-Wall v1, 1.1.90 build 20230518 > 1.2.0 build 20230702

 

The updates completed successfully, but both devices were bricked - the controller could not see them and they were not reachable on the network, except for about 5 pings shortly after a cold reboot (unplug/replug from PoE).

 

Upon reset (hold ~5s until LED flash), the EAP655-Wall was discovered by the controller, running 1.2.0, but after adoption got stuck in the CONFIGURING state for around 10min, then DISCONNECTED again and was not pingable anymore.

 

I downgraded the EAP655-Wall back to 1.1.90 using the http recovery method (Link), reset to flush the config, and was able to adopt the AP with the controller and get my network running again. I rolled the EAP650 back to 1.0.6 the same way and it is also working.

 

Conclusion: DO NOT TOUCH this latest beta on until there are multiple reports of it working on your model, or a fix is released by TP-Link.

Installed on my EAP670 ok, but Internet was sporadic after the upgrade. Had to do a full power cycle of the device for clients to stay connected for more than 15ish seconds. Everything working ok now I think.

 

Pretty disappointing that it took a full year to go from a beta firmware that sort of fixed IPV6 to another beta, and not even a final release.
