Ubiquiti NanoStattion2 with XS firmwareu

I bought an Ubiquiti NanoStation2 2.4GHz Indoor/Outdoor Dual-Polarity 10dBi CPE (FCC ID: SWX-NS2, IC ID: 6545A-NS2) at a garage sale.  The software version on this device is XS2.ar2316.v4.0.2.4996.120423.0955.  As such, this appears to be an airMAX ®  legacy product.  I do not find this device in the supported platform matrix at  on the AREDN website.  My newbie question, therefore, is:   Can this device be made to function in the AREDN MESH network?

This unit will not work with the AREDN firmware.

These early devices don't have enough memory, so our firmware won't fit into them.

If you find yourself with a stock of these early, unsupported devices, you might consider using them as access points, Wi-Fi clients or point to point bridges. As a bridge or Wi-Fi client, you may find their throughput somewhat limiting, but you will need to see if they meet your needs. Another use for these devices is as a network probe with Wireshark or other tools. 73, Gordon Beattie, W2TTT 201.314.6964
