Older AP-7131 firmware allowed to set beacon interval. It seems to have magically disappeared with the latest 'upgrade' of firmware. What version of WiNG will support setting beacon interval?

Hello Yashu,
      The last supported release of firmware for the EOSL AP7131 is v5.8.6.9 (service release). The radios do allow beacon interval to be set to 50, 100, or 200 (milliseconds) from AP Profile or Device level via Interfaces/Radios using UI or CLI.

Actually I need 20 milliseconds. What is the download link for older WiNG 4.x firmware image?

WiNG 4 is not posted due to end of support for quite some time now. If you require a WiNG v4 firmware release, please have a support case generated and as long as the AP7131 is under contract/entitlement, we can provide the requested firmware. The last release was v4.4.2.

I tried opening a case.... I get "Error 404: page not found" when I try to submit it. Why do I need 'entitlement' for older firmware image because the new firmware drops functionality?

You're getting the 404 Errors because your portal login has "No Account Association."

What ever you do, NEVER change the beacon interval? Why you would set it to 20ms.
