I got an 7522 with a quite old Firmware WING 5.8.0 as i bought it 2 years ago at my old company i was working for, i don't have a contract or a login to your support portal and i want to update my accesspoint as it is at my private home. is there a way to get the latest firmware?

I bought a quite expensive accesspoint so i thought i could get the latest updates for it too as for any other company... please help me out.

Hi Michael, In order to obtain firmware downloads from the support site you will need to create an account @ https://extremeportal.force.com and the device will need to be under an active service contract. Please see the article below
How can I purchase or renew a support contract for my wireless controller and APs?

You need to order a Software & TAC only support.  The price is only $17 USD list per AP; not bad IMHO as it gives you access to firmware and on-line support for 1 year.
Assuming your AP is model AP7522-67030-US, you want to order SKU:  97000-H30790

I am in the exact same predicament. I got a demo AP7522 unit from Zebra sales exec who is no longer with the company and I am trying to set it up for the new conference room. I am in Canada. Which authorized reseller/distributor should I contact to buy the firmware (17$ is not too bad I agree).
