Question

How can I upgrade the firmware as I do not see a Local option ?

Resolution

Procedure to upgrade the ZF manually to 9.1.2.0.8. Please follow the below mentioned steps:

Login to AP, select the upgrade option under Maintenance and change the firmware server along with Image control file only.

-> Select FTP option
-> Firmware server: fwupdate1.ruckuswireless.com
-> Image Control File: zfxxxx_
912_cntrl.rcksĀ 

Where "xxxx" is the corresponding model number of the AP.

Please don't change any other settings and "save the parameters" then click on ?perform upgrade? button. After upgrade reboot the AP. Now the AP will have local option and you can upgrade to desired Firmware.


NOTE:
1. Please ensure ?Firmware server? should be ?fwupdate1.ruckuswireless.com?.
2. Please ensure that you have connected ZF to the Internet.
3. Before upgrading please check whether the device can reach the internet or not, for that visit Diagnostics Under ?Administration? and ping any web site. Example: yahoo.com or google.com
