[Tech Ops] Which UBNT firmware version is solid?

Having been out of the loop over the last year or two, I didn't keep up with UBNT and it's little quirks. Is there anything I should know about or be aware of when it comes to firmware versions and or settings with these units?

I use 5.3.5 on everything right now and its working great,

ONLY complaint is for some reason my 20mhz backhauls with rocketdishes are only pushing 40-50 meg. Even though I do not need that much, it just seems like they should be getting more...

But I was on 5.3.2 and 5.3.3 forever and worked great, 5.3.5 is the same thing with the skynet patch.

Oh yeah, and the 21+ day memory leak issue where if you make a change the device will lock up if it has an uptime of 21 days or more :-\

Biggest single thing I can tell you is that all versions before 5.3.5 or 4.0.1 have a major security flaw that will let anyone login to your device and run commands without needing a password. All other issues, features, and stability aside, I would highly recommend upgrading at least anything that has a public IP on it ASAP.

Has anyone tried to use the new Deliberant gear with UBNT AP's in N mode? It looks pretty cool but I have been out of the loop for awhile and since Caleb and Hal kind of went their own ways, I don't have access to anymore "Insider" information Lol.

I have a couple more tests to do for confirmation but it looks like v5.3.5 will screw up if you use IP Alias on the CPE's. It will add another default route to the AP which can divert your traffic to a false gateway.

5.5 and the following "patches" have numerous chronic problems as reported on the UBNT website. I'm running 5.3.5 on most of my newer stuff and have had no flakey problems. I'm not worried about the virus since I do not use UNBT for public ingress.

Shame that UBNT is letting a couple of ego-freak dumbasses run their support site into the ground. Not all that surprising considering the lack of pride UBNT takes in the their product line, but still a shame.


My next order from Streak will be a Microtic radio to start learning on.

I can't imagine why you would find that to be offensive.
You yourself have made a few colorful posts about Uniquity and your negative opinions on how well they maintain their inventory levels......

If they didnt have that forum, and i didnt spend a year reading it, and especially WHT's posts, i probably wouldnt have developed my network using their products.

And my posts are factual. I suppose I took your "ego-freak dumbasses" too personally, my apologies.

I dunno...

I still think UBNT has done amazingly well, before them it was overpriced stuff or you did a hackjob...

I have some original NS5s still in use today that haven't missed a beat in years. Sure they are faded, and we get next to no lightning here, but I've rebooted far more Cisco 1300 bridges since I put up that NS link!

Jerm, I must agree with you. I remember when I was paying $450 for an FHSS Raylink USB unit! We used to think it was a BFD if we could pull 1.4Mb across a 3 mile link. The next level was another FHSS unit (Does anybody even remember what FHSS means?, Lol) that was Ethernet and POE. The price on that came down $50 to $400 a unit with 50ft of outdoor CAT5. I was ecstatic!

Now, if you spend $400 per radio, you get a unit with 50 times the speed and 1/3 the size. I still have the old hoppers laying around. Them, and a 1 or 2 one watt amps. I plan on using them during a zombie apocalypse or if the world falls apart, OR, if I get another annoying operator who doesn't play fair. If/when that happens, I am guaranteed a link that will work, LMAO!

Well you know I was right. Nobody can intercept FHSS other than those specialists who study such things. It takes a good spectrum analyzer and a bit of time to figure out the hop pattern on an FHSS system.

So far, we have seen exactly zero of them compromised, whereas we have seen all sorts of DSSS systems compromised by amateur operators.

It doesn't go as fast but it is harder to compromise, eh?
