So far so good on this firmware release. No issues upgrading and I can confirm the #2 bug fix for firmware that could not be upgraded online with the previous version. I was able to update 2 TP-Link switches with the new firmware, as expected (that I could not upgrade with the previous firmware). Additionally, Cloud Access DOES work in this beta version of the Controller...for those who might be reluctant to try the beta due to whether or not Cloud access is working (Cloud access works just fine). Will post if I encounter any issues.

Now we'll just need to wait a month before the dedicated hardware gets the update sad

 

1.  Also did this fix the bug I mentioned when you click Insights -> Known Clients -> Sort by Download......... has the wrong mac address when you click on it.

2.  Is having custom DNS per DHCP Reservation ever coming to Omada/TPLink? ......  so I can route different devices through different DNS servers.

3.  Is there a Wake On LAN feature in Omada? .......  I figured it would be in the Known Clients ......  you click it, then click wake up etc......

I use the Windows version of the controller. Cloud access is working fine on the Windows 11 5.13.30.4 controller version...didn't encounter the problems you had with the Linux version.

Hi @kogan

 

After confirming with the support engineer, both Windows and Linux versions are able to connect to the Cloud website, can you reproduce this issue stably?

Hi m8

I'll check it by another customer and reply here..

 

After Update on Linux Omada Controller, VLAN1 / LAN was not able to connect to the internet. Only after "restart" of the router, everything worked again. Just for the Info.

Router was ER605 V2 with Dec. Update 2.2.3
