I wasn't able to flash
the PBE-M5-400 through the GUI.
When putting the 192.168.1.20 in the browser, I went to Firmware
Update, select my loco-m-xw factory bin and pressed "Upload".
Then I could read the statement "Uploaded Firmware Version:
I clicked on the "Update" button and saw the "Firmware is being
After some seconds that window closed and then I could normally log in
again to the airOS at 192.168.1.20 : (
communicate again with my router but, when doing the TFTP transfer, I
always had a 'Firmware check failed' message, despite I properly checked
file integrity (MD5) of the firmwares I tried to install: OpenWRT
rocket-m-xw, the LiMe rocket-m-xw and AirOS xw v.5.5.6.
This message is strange...
Didn't understand what exactly happened but
somehow I managed to have
the AirOS xw v5.5.6 back to life after a proper reset. Apparently the
AirOS system was always there, healthy, and I did not notice.
So I happily started the upload of the correct
through the GUI hoping this time will be fine because now I was choosing
the correct firmware. But then I had the same problem as when I started:
I uploaded the firmware, clicked on Update, everything looked fine but
the new firmware (OpenWRT or LiMe) was not being installed, the AirOS
firmware always stayed there.
Fortunately now I knew that patience
and a reset would take me again to AirOS v5.5.6. That's where I am now,
Looking on the internet doesn't look like there should be problems, I
Maybe you can try to move from AirOS 5.5.6 to another version,
whatever you manage to find, e.g. 5.5.10, never never 5.6.x.
I just looked on Ubiquiti website and there's no 5.5.x image available
to download so I uploaded two old AirOS 5.5.x images I had on my pc,
an XM image and an XW image:
Maybe you can find official old download links on Web Archive...
Any suggestion? If I don't receive any answer I
will soon try to get rid
of this thingy.
Bruno suggestion is also a possibility, and for a world post-FCC and
pre-librerouter maybe is the only one.
Have a look also at lime-hwd-ground-routing package, could be useful
for the setup he suggests.
Does anyone know any working LiMe router more
unidirectional than the
NanoStation M5? I need something more unidirectional.
It does not have to be a new model. Actually, I prefer if it is an old
one, so that I can get a second-hand one.
Well, older hardware could be Ubiquiti NanoBridge M5.
Still, also PBE-M5-400 should work... Mah...
