    Hello, yesterday i'd successfully updated AP WAX650S to this 6.25 firmware, but today, they want to downgrade to 6.20. It's a bug at 6.25?

    Same here. My Access Points also want to DOWNgrade the firmware (after upgrading to 6.25 yesterday). I experienced connection problems with my clients with the new 6.25 firmware since yesterday. So I considered a manual downgrade anyway.
    Are there any infos about bugs in 6.25?

    Hi All,

    We regret to inform you that new firmware release on 27th September has potential risk to cause client failed to obtain the IP address while doing intra-roaming within same access point (5GHz to 2.4GHz and vice versa). Client roaming between different access points DOES NOT have the same problem. 

    Please arrange the soonest schedule to revert AP firmware to previous version for ensuring smooth WiFi experience. 

    The issue only happens on following models NWA110AX, NWA210AX, WAX510D, WAX610D and WAX650S.

    6.25 firmare is also expected for NWA-1123 V2 and NWA-5123, which I am aware that are not covered by this "delayed" release.
    Any hint/suggestion/ETA for these devices?

    Hoping the best for all other customers.
