  • IPv4 Address—IPv4 address of the access point.

  • Status—ON or OFF.

  • MAC Address—MAC address of radio 1.

  • Mode—Mode of radio 1. The mode can be ac, a, an, or 5GHz 802.11n. The default is 802.11 a/n.

  • Channel—Frequency at which radio 1 operates.

  • Status—ON or OFF.

  • MAC Address—MAC address of radio 2.

  • Mode—Mode of radio 2. The mode can be bg, bgn, or 2.4GHz 802.11n. The default is 802.11 b/g/n.

  • Channel—Frequency at which radio 2 operates.

Value

Displays the values for the respective names.

Client Associations

VAP

Displays the virtual access point with which the client is associated. For example, wlan0vap2 means the client is associated with VAP 2 on radio 1.

wlan0 means the client is associated with VAP 0 on radio 1.

wlan1 means the client is associated with VAP 0 on radio 2.

Client MAC Address

Displays the MAC address of the associated wireless client.

Authentication

Displays the underlying IEEE 802.11 authentication status, if the virtual access point security mode is set to none or static WEP.

This status does not show IEEE 802.1x authentication or association status. If the virtual access point security mode is set to 802.1x or WPA, it is possible for a client association to be shown as being authenticated when it has actually not been authenticated through the second layer of security.

Channel/Rate/RSSI

Displays the following information:

  • Channel—Channel on which the client associations are currently broadcasting.

  • Rate—IEEE 802.11 mode being used on the client associations.

  • RSSI—Received Signal Strength Indicator for the current channel.

Packets Rx/Tx

Displays the number of packets received from the wireless clients and transmitted from the access point to the wireless client.

Bytes Rx/Tx

Displays the number of bytes received from the wireless clients and transmitted from the access point to the wireless client.

Neighboring Access Points

MAC Address

Displays the MAC address of the neighbor access point.

Privacy

Displays the security status on the neighbor access point:

  • Off—Security mode is set to none (no security).

  • On—There is some security in place.

WPA

Displays if Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security is on or off on the neighbor access point.

Band

Displays the IEEE 802.11 mode being used on the neighbor access point:

  • 2.4—IEEE 802.11b, 802.11g, or 802.11n mode, or a combination of these modes.

  • 5—IEEE 802.11ac, 802.11a or 802.11n mode, or both modes.

Channel

Displays the channel on which the neighbor access point is currently broadcasting.

SSID

Displays if the service set identifier that identifies the WLAN that the neighbor access point is broadcasting.

Virtual Access Points Details

Name

Displays the name of the virtual access points.

Value

Displays the details of the virtual access points. For example, SSID, VLAN ID, upload limit and so on.
