2 Easy Way How to Upgrade Ubiquiti Unifi AP Firmware

Unifi Ubiquiti AP is an access point tool that can be said to be used most often in office areas or hotels.

In addition to its affordable price, this Access Point has a controler that we can use to monitor all access points that we use around the office. 

But the ugliness of an access point that uses its own controler is, when we want to connect the access point with the controler.

We have to customize the firmware series that is inside the AP with the controller that we will use.

The way to connect unifi access points to the controller is known as adopt.

To apply AP Unifi to the controler you are using. You must first update the firmware in your AP to the latest version.

For that you have to update it first so that you can connect unifi AP with controler.
