  • Is there a new version yet? My APs still have their firmware locked so I don’t know if this has been fixed. I like to keep my firmware up-to-date 

    thanks

    We are working on new firmware release progress and expect to release this month.
    I’ll update this post if the release is earlier.
    Thank you.

    How do I arrange such a schedule. My NWA50AX does turn itself off after connecting to the network?

    The problem has fixed in new release V6.29P1 firmware.
    Now is available on Nebula, you can upgrade the AP from the path below:

    Nebula > Site-wide > Firmware management > Devices

    Find and select your small business model AP, click “Upgrade Now”.
    Or after November 28, you could set up " + Schedule Upgrade" to arrange schedule upgrade time.
    The whole progress from download firmware to upgrade successfully and online on Nebula is about 10-15 minutes.
    Thank you.

    O.k. Thank you for that advice. The status is now "up to date" but it still turns itself off after a reboot. I don't have access to it. Even after a reset to factory settings "I" cannot access it. 
    I have granted access via the Help Center in Nebula.

    After some more tests:
    I can get the LED to blink.
    I can Reboot
    I can Logon locally

    I do not see the AP in my WLAN network.
    I cannot configure SSIDs which is actually essential to securely and safely use the AP.

    May we know the issue still occurs now? 
    Since we see the AP is online on Nebula now, and there is a client connect to NWA50AX record.
    But we found there are 13 "Port 0 is down" logs in past 24 hours,
    Please check the wired Ethernet cables and try change port connect with the upper device to void service impact.
    Thank you.

    Thank you, After plugging it in to another port in the switch GS-1900 8HP I could manage the AP and it is working fine now.
