I could logon the uboot, I would like to rewrite firmware for a try. but where to download firmware for ap320, and how to do it under uboot env?

Hello, thank you for that output. I've emailed you directly with instructions on how to get the firmware file you’ll need. Below is a guide to updating the AP via TFTP, but you will need support assistance for step 4 where you enter in the bootloader password. Unfortunately we can’t give out the bootloader password, so you would need a support technician to enter that in for you. 

 

If you don’t have support, please let me know and we can set up a time for a call so I can enter that in for you. Just to set expectations here, I’m not a technician and won’t be able to assist with the other steps involved in the TFTP process, but I can enter in the password for you and the guide below should cover the steps needed for the process: https://extremeportal.force.com/ExtrArticleDetail?an=000056869&q=Tftp

Thanks for trying that for me, I’m sorry it didn’t seem to help stabilize the AP. I ran this past one of our XIQ engineers to be sure, but at this point it looks like you’d need a new AP. If you have support, I’d recommend opening a support ticket to request an RMA of that device. I’m sorry I couldn’t be more helpful here.
