CHANGELOG

We have CAPsMAN v2 ready for testing.

wireless-cm2-6.23rc-tile.npk
wireless-cm2-6.23rc-mipsbe.npk
wireless-cm2-6.23rc-x86.npk
wireless-cm2-6.23rc-ppc.npk
wireless-cm2-6.23rc-mipsle.npk

Note: CAPsMAN v2 is NOT compatible with current CAPsMAN v1 (CAPsMAN v1 CAP devices will not be able to connect to CAPsMAN v2 and CAPsMAN v2 CAP devices will not be able to connect to CAPsMAN v1). It means that both CAPsMAN and CAP devices should have wireless-cm2 package installed in order to make CAPsMAN v2 system to work. If you want to try out the CAPsMAN v2 upgrade all the CAPs and the CAPsMAN to latest RouterOS version and install wireless-cm2 package.

CAPsMAN v2 features:

  • CAPsMAN automatic upgrade of all CAP clients (configurable)
  • improved CAP<->CAPsMAN data connection protocol
  • added "Name Format" and "Name Prefix" setting for Provision rules
  • improved logging entries when client roams between the CAPs
  • added L2 Path MTU discovery

Upgrade options from v1 to v2:
Option1: Install a new temporary CAPsMAN v2 router in same network where the current CAPsMAN router is and start upgrading CAPs with wireless-cm2 package. All CAPs with the v2 will connect to the new temporary CAPsMAN v2 router. After every CAP is upgraded to v2, upgrade your current CAPsMAN to v2 and then turn off the temporary CAPsMAN v2 router.
Option2: Upgrade your CAPs and then CAPsMAN to v2 at the same time. In this case you could have little more downtime unless you schedule all the CAPs to reboot/install at the same time.
