WiFi Ranger heads-up

If you have a WiFi Ranger, new firm ware is out. The new firmware is 7.0.8.
I asked a WiFi Ranger guru what were the changes in the new firmware update. and this is what I was told. For us non technical people, there is new firmware out.

Speedtest UI Fixes ( Sometimes the UI doesn't update with the speed )

- Synchronized SSID UI Button Fixed

 - Roaming stability fixes, at times when band-steering a disconnect would occur

- Traffic in bridge not being interrogated by firewall ( True transparent bridge, should help with sporadic reboots and traffic traversal between WFRs )

- WFRControl broadcasts now pass traffic properly back to indoor unit ( layer 2, UDP were specifically causing grief )

 - Updated Wireless Driver

- Fix unable to stop TX DMA Errors when scan's or connects occur.

- Fix for seeing less scan_results when 5G broadcast is enabled

 - Fix for reboot loop when devices connect to signal too quickly (( Only occurs on Boot ))

- Improve MCS index stability

- Improve AP mode with noise environments

- Updated USB Cellular Drivers

- Fix wireless scan that hangs WFRControl
 - Embedded Multi-Carrier Modem Support ( B2/B4/B5/B12/B13/B14/B66/B71 )

- PPP Modems were hanging due to wrong disconnect actions
 - Improvements to WFRControl Cellular Messaging

- Display LTE Signal when hovering bars with mouse

- Usage tracking support for 802.11ac networks bug fix

- Usage would not display validation errors properly

- Fixed scenarios where wireless driver would trigger random reboots on certain hardware platforms.

- Resolved several memory leaks in Usage

- Added improved messaging to several modem types, what looked like a modem hang was related to the UI stalling.

- SkyProLTE shows "Carrier ID" during the connection process, this way a user can report to our support *where* in the Carrier connection process a failure happens. Makes it much easier to troubleshoot.

- Added UI popups to ( Rebooting USB devices, Clearing SIM details )

- Added a "Clear SIM Details" button to SkyProLTE's, for SIM swaps. This forces the SkyProLTE to read the SIM and update it's configuration.

- Advanced Features fix where RADIO2 would always show advanced features ( wouldn't hide correctly in simple mode )

 - Improved help bubbles throughout UI

 - Support for hardware revisions, and new V3 SkyPro Board

- Made Multi-WAN Dynamic mode trigger off an average usage

- Exposed client node’s LTE & GPS information from the indoor WFR

- Fixed speedtest UI messaging for WFRControl

- Fixed usage restrictions with Safe Surf enabled where data wasn’t being tracked for usage restrictions when safe surf is on

- Fixed usage of WFRControl with Multi-WAN dynamic mode

 - Fixed bug where usage groups when Multi-WAN is on caused a kernel panic and rebooted the node

- Fixed bug with usage groups where multiple interfaces in a single group didn’t accumulate data from any secondary interfaces that were added

 - Fixed bug that didn’t allow access to the WFRControl panel

- Fixed bug that showed “ac” network signals in the 2G wifi network scan

- Fixed usage data CSV export that had the HTML tags in the export

- Added “.” to the acceptable characters for SSID tags in usage tab

- Fixed a bug that would cause a *firmware brick* when upgrading to a new version

- Fixed issue when changing Nimblelink embedded LTE modems to a new firmware

- Updated Registration email validation

- Fixed bug where some popups were incorrect

- Fixed bug where profiles sometimes wouldn’t display

 - Many other Bandwidth Usage improvements/stability mostly around bandwidth groups

- Many Stability Improvements

- Improved firewall and security requirements
