How do I download an individual AP firmware component package and install the firmware on a Firebox so that it is available from the Gateway Wireless Controller?
If the Firebox that manages your APs cannot contact WatchGuard servers or uses a slow Internet connection, you can manually download a firmware update package for an AP and upload it to the Firebox. The AP firmware will then be available from the Gateway Wireless Controller to upgrade your APs.
You can download individual AP firmware updates from the WatchGuard Support Center. The zip file download includes the AP firmware as a .wgpkg-dl component package file.
Note: The component package can be installed without having to reboot your Firebox.
