1.   Introduction

      The Avaya Wireless AP-8 provides wireless access to network 
      infrastructures. The access point automatically allows clients 
      to roam from one coverage cell to another within the same 
      subnet. The AP-8 system provides:

	- Easy installation and operation
	- Seamless roaming
	- Authentication and encryption
	- High-speed links to the Internet

      Access Point management is provided through a standard 
      Web-based interface, a CLI (Command Line Interface), and 
      SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol). You can use any 
      of these management interfaces to view and adjust the Access 
      Point's configuration.

4.    New Features

4.1    Spectralink Support
       The Avaya AP-4/5/6 802.11g upgrade kit now supports 
       prioritization of the Spectralink Voice Priority (SVP) protocol.	

-------------------------------------------------------------------      

5.  Fixes In This Release

5.1  VLAN 

     - with the WPA-PSK security mode now works properly.
     - Works properly with WEP mode.

5.1  Radius Accounting can now be enabled without a MAC-based RADIUS 
     Authentication server being configured in the AP. To configure
     a MAC-based RADIUS Authentication server, select the "RADIUS"
     tab in the web interface, then select the "RADIUS Auth" tab.

5.2  For WEP, you can now configure any WEP key for static WEP. 

5.3  Changed the implementation of a CLI command to deny non-encrypted data
     which provides support to all client cards. 
     
       - Deny non-encrypted data defaults to enabled. In the enabled
         state, only WEP clients can connect when encryption is enabled
         on the Access Point.
       - If deny non-encrypted data is set to disabled, non-encrypted
         clients with 802.11b Avaya Silver or Gold cards are allowed
         to connect to a WEP-enabled Access Point.

     The command is as follows:

     set wifssidtbl <ssidtbl instance> denynonencrypted disable  

     where:
       - ssidtbl instance is 3.1 for slot A and 4.1 for slot B
       - denynonencrypted default is enable

     Note: Only WEP clients can connect when encryption is enabled on the AP.

5.4  The web interface provides an error message when the AP input for
     the IP address in the RADIUS Acct" tab is over 255 characters. Also,
     the AP-3 no longer locks up when the input is over 255 characters.

5.5  If VLAN management is enabled, the Access Point can no longer be linked
     to different SSIDs. 


5.6  Orinoco MIB name changed to Enterprise MIB.

5.7  Added the following paragraph to the User Guide: "Encryption
     Keys must be configured for WEP clients if mixed mode is selected.

5.8  In the web interface, the SYSLOG page now properly displays all syslog 
     host table entries. The heartbeat status is a drop down menu. The 
     heartbeat interval text box is enabled or disabled depending on the 
     heartbeat status.

5.9  Corrected text under the Static MAC tab of the web interface. Added 
     colon ":" to MAC address text.

5.10 Last known good config file functionality now works properly.

5.11 The command "telsessiontout" can now be configured to a value less than
     60.

5.12 The Setup wizard now allows you to set the AP in WPA mode for 802.11a.

5.13 In the web interface, under the "Status" tab, there is now an
     extra column for additional space. The column sizes for traps messages
     have also been fixed. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------      

6.  Known Issues

6.1  The config file cannot be retrieved using the TFTP server.

     Workaround: Retrieve the config file using the web interface.

6.2  The AP-4 and AP-5 with 802.11bg upgrade kit drops connections when more 
     than five (5) Spectralink calls connect simultaneously. The AP will 
     support up to five (5) calls connected simultaneously. By Default, the 
     Avaya/Spectralink voice priority processor (AVPP/SVPP) enforces a 
     (5) simultaneous call limit per AP.
