Hi Antero,

You can safely upgrade from WiNG 5.7.x to WiNG 5.8.x. No intermediate step up upgrade is required. You can review/download the WiNG 5.8.6 release notes at the following link:

Hello Antero,

You can go directly from 5.7.x to 5.8.x. The release notes will provide you with the upgrade steps and information. There is no need for an intermediary version.


thanks for the help, the upgrade is running. i'm starting from the Access point joined to controller first and then i'll upgrade the virtual controller.

Dear friends

Can I use mesh with 1 device wing 5.6 and 1 device wing 5.7?

Hello Tuan,

APs on both ends of the mesh should be on the same firmware version. You cannot mesh APs with different firmware versions.
