Terms and Conditions for Linksys Cloud Manger 2.0 Migration
By clicking the CONFIRM button I accept the Terms and Conditions related to the migration from Linksys Cloud
Manager 1.0 (LCM1) accessible via www.business.linksys.com to Linksys Cloud Manager 2.0 (LCM2) accessible via www.cloudmanager.linksys.com for all
devices purchased with the LCM1 firmware including LAPAC1200C, LAPAC1750C, LAPAC2600C and all regional
variations. Migrating from LCM1 to LCM2 provides for new functionality, but also changes and eliminates
other features. Those that are comfortable with the functionality provided in LCM1 do not have to migrate
but should know that Linksys will not be developing new functionality based on the LCM1 platform. Details of
the changes are outlined below. Please read carefully before initiating firmware migration.
Important facts to be aware of before migrating:
Once Access Points are upgraded with the new LCM2 firmware, these Access Points cannot revert
back to LCM1 firmware or be used with the LCM1 platform.
The firmware update is required for the Access Points to work with LCM2. Please make sure you are
comfortable with the feature changes before migrating over.
Existing LCM1 users will need to create new accounts in LCM2 in order to use it. All LCM1 account
information, including user profiles and network settings, will not be transferred to LCM2.
Linksys will continue to operate the LCM1 platform for the duration of the 5 year term offered,
then end of life the service. Once Access Points are upgraded, this 5-year cloud license for
LCM1 is replaced with the new license terms for LCM2.
Access Points upgraded to LCM2 firmware will have access to LCM2 for the lifetime of the product.
The migration to LCM2 brings new improvements over LCM1 which are listed here (Link to marketing document),
but also changes and eliminates some functionality currently available in LCM1:
No Stand Alone Option
The AP will not provide the capability to be configured and managed as a stand-alone device (with
exception of configuring connection parameters, i.e. IP address, subnet mask, gateway, VLAN).
All management features will now be cloud based. Once configured, the AP can continue operating
without a cloud connection, but a cloud connection will be required to make configuration
No Historic Data
Data usage statistics of clients and APs will be real-time only – i.e., populating for the
duration of the active cloud session. No historical statistics will be available, e.g. past 7
days, last 24 hours with the exception of online/offline status for devices.
Rogue AP Detection, Block Clients, Band Steering
Not included in LCM2 launch version. To be provided in future releases.
