Good Morning Sir,

Thanks for your response on this, We are currently installing e500 and e501s cnPilot AP's at CBN Training school in Nigeria. We need a configuration guide to show us details of what the configuration of Campus wifi should be like.

All the neccessary paramters required to setup this device successfully.


Secondly this equipment require upgrade, which of the cambium firmware software is required for these purpose.
