Use the Local Upgrade method to upgrade your Unleashed network using firmware files
that you have downloaded from the Ruckus Support site.
To upgrade the Unleashed Master AP and all connected Unleashed member APs using the
Local Upgrade method, use the following procedure:
Go to Admin & Services > Administer > Upgrade.
The Upgrade page
Select Local Upgrade as the upgrade method.
Click Browse to locate the Unleashed firmware image file
on your local computer. Unleashed will perform a check to make sure it is the
proper image for the AP model before proceeding.
Note: Each Unleashed AP model has a different firmware image file that must be
loaded onto the Unleashed Master and then distributed to member APs, model
by model. So, for example, if you have a mix of Unleashed R500 and R710 APs,
you could upgrade all of the R500s first and then the R710s, or the other
way around, but you cannot simultaneously upgrade R500 and R710 APs. You
have to upgrade each model one at a time.
Note: While the upgrade process will check to make sure you do not
try to upgrade an Unleashed R710 using Unleashed R500 firmware, there is no
check to ensure that you do not upgrade/downgrade an Unleashed AP to a
ZoneFlex (standalone AP) firmware image. If you do this, the AP will no
longer function as an Unleashed AP (until Unleashed firmware is re-loaded
