Wich stable FW for both ZD1100,1200,3000 and some standalone AP ?

New Contributor II

I have some problems with the lastest FW... they are no more universal for ZD controled AP, and standalone AP...

I need one who work whith all my models of Zone directors (actually 1100,1200 and 3K) ans also who let the AP working in standalone mode.

We deploy often for temporary using and sometime the timming is very short and the time to deploy sandalone FW is not aviable.

the AP we used are: ZF7982, 7372, 7782S, R700, T301n and t301s.


You need to issue the following command on the AP's to get them to join a SZ, SCG, ZD, as it is not always on by default:
set discovery-agent enabled

To prevent the AP's joining a ZD etc. you simply issue this:

set discovery-agent disabled

In my experience there IS no stable build for ZD1100 with Rxx APs. Hoping the forthcoming 9.10.2 fixes the current connectivity issues.

what connectivity issues?

are you on about hearbeat timeout issues?

Biggest issue currently is that APs will (seemingly) randomly stop authenticating clients (just normal WPA2 PSK clients). In the ZD you will then see clients on that AP being "blocked for too many failed attempts" and the clients start re-prompting for valid credentials. Restarting the affected AP immediately fixes the issue. Because of the randomness (both in time between occurrences and in which AP is affected) my theory is that some "bad" device is entering the network and the AP doesn't handle it well. In any case, it's extremely frustrating to have to routinely reboot APs to keep them working. I miss the glory days of 7962s that were exceedingly stable. And don't even get me started on the practice of Ruckus releasing new APs with features missing (airtime fairness on 5g, wlan prioritization, etc). Grrrr.

I thought they had solved most of the client connectivity issues in 9.8 MR3, for the r700 at least anyway.

The only one they have not fixed that I am aware of is when you have force DHCP enabled and the clients cannot roam (I found this one myself and am eagerly awaiting a fix)

ATF for the 5GHz is going to take some time for 802.11ac, as most other vendors have opted to use 3 radio AP's (the 3rd radio being 802.11ac clients only)
