License Levels

What Levels are there ?

You can purchase a Level 4,5 and 6. Level 1 is the demo license.

What are the Level 2 and 3 ?

Level 2 was a transitional license from old legacy license format. These licenses are not available anymore, if you have this kind of license, it will work, but to upgrade it - you will have to purchase a new license.


Level 3 was the basic license without wireless features, which now has been replaced with Level 4 as the lowest level. Now Level 3 is not available on the account server. Upgrading of this Level is not possible, a new purchase is necessary if you wish to get a higher level with wireless AP.


Level 3 can be obtained only in large quantities. If you need a wireless-client-only license, you can get these if you need more than 100 at once.

Upgrading and Extending Licenses

Can I extend the upgrade time before it has ended, or can I get Level 3 with bigger upgrade time ?

Yes, this costs 15$ per year, but is possible only at the time of purchase, or before the upgrade time ends. After the upgrade time is over, upgrade time can not be extended. Also Level3 is not upgradable to higher levels as it is a bulk-only license.

Why cannot I upgrade/extend my license?

If the account server does not let you upgrade or extend your license upgrade time, it means that your license upgrade time has ended - this means that your software can no longer be upgraded to higher versions, and the key can not be ugraded to higher levels. In this case a new key is needed.

Why is the upgrade / extension now available after the upgrade time ends?

We have introduced new, very low prices for Software, which now compensates for the lack of upgrade/extension after the upgrade deadline. Buying a new AP license is now a lot cheaper than an upgrade was before the new prices.
