Upgrade only module firmware

Hello guys,

Currently, in release 4.17.0, the option to upgrade the radio module firmware has been removed from the Software and Firmware upgrade screen. So, how can update only the radio module firmware?


Hi @keysling,

You can update the only radio firmware by following these steps:

  1. Go to ACEmanager.
  2. Navigate to the Admin tab.
  3. Select the Radio Module Firmware option.
  4. Click on the “Update” button for the firmware version you want to upgrade.
  5. Choose the radio firmware file you want to update.

You can download that firmware file from the source page at the following link: https://source.sierrawireless.com/resources/airlink/software_downloads/rv50/rv50x-firmware-list/#sthash.mJm603fY.dpbs

Please refer to the attached screenshot for further guidance.

You can also refer to the “Updating Only the Radio Module Firmware” section on pages 32 and 381 of the RV50X Software Configuration Guide: https://source.sierrawireless.com/resources/airlink/software_reference_docs/airlink-rv-series---configuration-guide/#sthash.WRX3JIXV.dpbs
