29.7.1 Firmware Release Available - general fixes

The Roaming/Teleworker bug is not listed in the fixes, but is no longer a known issue? Curious if it's actually fixed given how long it's been around.


Important note

  • While Meraki APs have traditionally relied on UDP port 7351 for cloud communication, and TCP ports 80 and 443 for backup communications, with MR 28+ we are beginning the transition to using TCP port 443 as the primary means for cloud connectivity. In order to ensure proper connectivity to the Meraki cloud after this upgrade, please ensure that all “Meraki cloud communication” traffic specified in the "Help" > "Firewall Info" page is allowed through any firewalls or security devices that are deployed upstream of your Meraki APs. These requirements have been updated in November of 2022, so it is important that you review them. (Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E APs)

Legacy product notice

  • When configured for this version, MR12, MR16, MR18, MR24, MR26, MR32, MR34, MR62, MR66, and MR72 will run MR 26.8.3

Bug fixes

  • General stability and performance improvements

Known issues

  • In high capacity wireless networks APs may experience instability when the “Client Balancing” or "Band Steering" feature are enabled

Has anyone tested version MR 29.7.1?
We have been told not to perform the last few because they would impact client roaming which is critical
