Firmware Update 1.7: Improved WPA2-Enterprise support
We have a new update for Airtame’s firmware (that nifty software that runs on your Airtame device) and it includes some improvements that we can’t wait for you to try out. The last 1.6 update focused on stability. This 1.7 update continues on that track to keep improving the foundation before we move on to begin adding new features.
The 1.7 firmware update includes:
- Improved WPA2-Enterprise support
- Expanded support for older TVs (CEA/VESA)
- Other bug fixes and improvements
We have added further support for WPA Enterprise EAP-TLS (certificates). This is something that was specially requested by larger enterprises. We are therefore very happy to announce that it is now possible to upload your own custom WiFi certificates to your Airtame and thereby allow the device onto your certificate based network.
As you can see in the image below, this means in your Airtame’s settings, you will now have the choice between Automatic mode or EAP-TLS mode.
CEA/VESA video support modes
We’ve added CEA and VESA video modes for older displays and resolutions. Some customers experienced issues when plugging Airtame into the HDMI port of older TVs and computer monitors. This added support should fix most instances.
In general, Airtame can be configured to a 16:10 aspect ratio that many computer monitors and projectors use today. The two resolution settings we’ve added are:
