Message from Jan Rafaj (ap-utils co-developer):
Note to SmartBridges PTE: you could have nice support in ap-utils at cost of
sending me one APPO sample. Since I actually have no sample to test & verify
on, all my support for airPoints is on blind or 'someones trial and error
report' basis. You should really support OSS developers better way. Info
about how to reliably load airPoint PRO firmware to non-SB brand devices,
based on the same HW ref. design, would of course help too.
NOTE TO ALL USERS: IF YOU HAVE SMARTBRIDGES airPoint PRO (indoor or outdoor)
AND WANT BETTER AP-UTILS SUPPORT, YOU CAN SEND ME ONE SAMPLE OF THIS DEVICE.
OTHERWISE THERE WILL APPARENTLY BE _INCOMPLETE_ SUPPORT EVEN IN FUTURE! THE
LAST APPO I I'VE SEEN IN BAZAAR THAT I WAS PLANNING TO GET IN ORDER TO
IMPROVE SUPPORT IN AP-UTILS, HAS BEEN JUST SOLD OUT, SO MY PLANS ARE GONE.
I'M NOT WILLING TO PAY LIKE $350 FOR ONE SAMPLE JUST TO SUPPORT THE WORLD. SO
UNTIL SOMEONE SUPPORTS ME WITH SAMPLE DEVICE TO TEST ON, MY SUPPORT FOR
SmartBridges APPO in AP-UTILS IS _OVER_ (and this round of patches is
apparently the last effort to improve support in this area). I'LL ALSO ACCEPT
ANY DEVICE THAT USES THE SAME FIRMWARE / MIB AS SMARTBRIDGES airPoint PRO.
You can contact me about the subjects above via e-mail at .
