Aironet | AP4800 | AP4800 E/T changes v7.22 – v7.11 ******************************** 1

AP4800 E/T changes v7.22 – v7.11
1. Made modifications to IP port filtering.
2. Fix display of current max power in "statistics status" screen
and "config radio extend" menu.
3. Send old style query for "statistics map" function so that units
running older code will respond.
4. Fix retry and beacon histogram display on web interface.
5. Fix problem that older version of code could not retrieve firmware
with an FTP get from an AP running newer firmware. Newer firmware was
not respecting TCP window size of older code.
6. Fix problem in that if a node filter was set for a radio node, the
node would not associate to the AP properly.
7. The unit was not returning the correct values for the allowed and
basic radio rates when queried by an SNMP station.
8. Change the IP fragmentation threshold to account for headers on a
token ring network.
9. Fix bug when reporting normalized rssi values from incoming linktest packets.
10. Add snmp variable to display the product type which is the
combination of the radio type and product class.
11. Fix BOOTP/DHCP requests to always go out with our address set to 0,
even if we have an assigned address, so that the DHCP server will use
the correct address in its response.
AP4800 E/T changes v7.11 - v6.40
1. Add an snmp variable to display the radio type installed in the unit.
2. The 802.11 encapsulation method was not being saved properly if
aironet extensions were enabled or disabled.
3. Include new radio code to fix RTS retry mis-count
4. Fix setting of IP address by SNMP for a ping request.
5. Fix SNMP access to console baud rates
6. Units would crash if more than 6 SNMP community names were added.
7. Fix display of menu items that can be IP addresses, mac addresses or
8. Fix SNMP access to "log clear" command.
9. Fix responding to an IP fragmented ping of a certain size (1473).
10. Older web browsers would crash the AP when setting configuration items.
11. Fix logging of failed console password events.
12. Log fail FTP password tries.
13. Log registration attempts that are blocked by the "reg autoreg
on/off" controls.
14. Encapsulation on the 802.11 radios was not being correctly set back
to the defaults if aironet extensions were disabled.
15. Add the DNS variables to the SNMP MIB
16. Allow the setting of the syslog host, snmp trap host and ftp host as DNS names from SNMP.
17. Add SNMP access to encapsulation table, mobile IP, extended radio
node stats, time server setup and remote operator list
18. On token ring access points, LAN nodes were sometimes being marked as ethernet type II nodes in the
ARP table display.
19. The token ring AP's were setting the source route
reverse bit on empty source routes (to the local ring).
20. If the console port was set to hardware flow control and no cable
was connected the units would not start up properly.
21. Allow Web access to the "diag net find" command.
22. Radio stats for buffer full, duplicate frame, crc errors and
holdoff timeouts are updated correctly.
23. If the registration table fills up and a packet shows up from an
unknown source address, only delete an old one and add the new address
if the destination was not a multicast or broadcast. If the packet was
directed it is more likely we will eventually have to use the source
24. Checking if our IP address was already used did not work properly
on the AP in repeater mode.
25. You may now set the IP address of the AP the following way.
This is only allowed is our IP address is not already set.
For a host add a static entry to its arp table with the IP and MAC
address of the AP. (arp -s 00-40-96-12-34-56 (on
Win95)). Then ping the AP from the host (ping On
receiving a ping whose destination MAC address matches its own and the AP's
IP address is zero, the AP will adopt the new IP address.
In this way you don't have to attach a serial cable to the AP to
initially set its IP address.
To prevent anyone from changing the address, the source address of
the ping is checked against the configured list of allowed operator
hosts, which is initially empty (which means allow anyone).
26. If the unit is assigned an IP address via the ping trick, from the
console menus or via RARP, then DHCP will be automatically disabled,
to prevent it from overriding the assignment.
27. When a code load is started all trace buffers are cleared, all
learned LAN node entries from the registration table are removed and
no saving of packets for power save nodes is done to try
and free up as much memory as possible to allow the load to complete.
28. The console read and write passwords may be used as SNMP community
names when accessing the configuration though an SNMP management
station. The read password used as a community name will not allow the
configuration to be changed.
This is in addition to the regularly configured community names.
This allows the operator to remove all the commonly known community
names and just rely on the passwords he should already have set.
29. If a unit has its radio configuration changed, it will first
de-register all its client nodes before making the change so that the
clients will re-register faster.
30. The DHCP class ID was not being set properly in the DHCP discover
packets to the server so that the server could not properly group the
request with other like units.
31. Fix SNMP access to the registration table. The OID of the table
indices were not being returned properly.
32. Signal quality was not correctly displayed from a 4800 radio.
33. If an 802 client tries to associate with invalid rates,
authentication mode or wep key the AP will print a log the first time
it happens.
34. If the web interface was used to change a config item that
caused the connection to be broken between the AP and the browser(ie.
the IP address), the AP would crash.
35. Add the radios errors decrypt fail and holdoff timeouts to the
AP4800 E/T changes v6.40 - v6.24
1. Fixed a bug in queuing multicast packets when there are PSP clients
2. Fix a bug in recording how many packets are in the radio transmit
queue when packets sent to PSP nodes are retried.
3. Fix a problem when PSP nodes switching in and out of PSP mode
4. Resolve an issue for a bug in the ethernet controller
where it could occasionally lock up and stop transmitting.
