    What does the P2 firmware actually do?

    "Accumulated bugs fixed" doesn't really give us a good idea of what it's for.

    Moreover, other AP still waiting for Deep frag patched firmwares... :s

    Hi @Dan17

     

    Firmware V6.25 P2 C0 has enhanced captive portal redirect by changing certificate.

    If you require any further information, feel free to contact us.

    Thank you

     

    Regards,

    Bella

    Maybe the memory overflow bug in the previous version?

    A few days later I'm reconsidering this version; after just two days memory use has increased again from 43% to 70% and rising. This morning, 24 hours after another reboot, it has risen again from 43% to 62%. 

    This quick rise was not the case with earlier version 6.20 before the Frag-hotfix. When memory use rises above 85% connection and transmission issues start to happen.

    I'm seriously considering to revert back to 6.10 or 6.20 from earlier this year.

    Devices: WAX650S

    Hi @Pbee

     

    Thank you for reporting your observation.

    We’d like to know if you’re running any application through wireless when you aware the high memory usage.

    We can help to check the details of the AP, please enable the Zyxel support at Help > Support request > Invite Zyxel support as administrator, and provide the Org and Site name for us.

     

    Regards,

    Bella

    Status:
    Now running 3 days, 14 hours and memory usage is at 95% again.

    @Zyxel_Bella This support option isn't available as these units are not connected to Nebula.
    We'll try to rebuild the config from factory default again, before reverting to the old firmware.

    OK... within 18 hours memory use went up from 43% to 60%. 
    So we reverted back to V6.20(ABRM.0) from april 2021. We'll monitor this one for a couple of days.

    @Zyxel_Bella
    We're running general network applications, like MS Teams or Google Meet on daytime with less than 10 clients. Mixed with streaming (video, audio, desktop) services randomly through out the day. This posed no problem before.

    update:
    Now running on V6.20(ABRM.0) for more than 5 days and still on 45% memory use. Config and network use was not changed after downgrade.

    Update: +7 days running on V6.20(ABRM.0) and still on 44% memory use. Won't update back to V6.25 now. Will have to wait for V6.30, hoping that this memory bug is removed then.
