phy

Shows AP association for the specified PHY radio type (802.11a802.11a provides specifications for wireless systems. Networks using 802.11a operate at radio frequencies in the 5 GHz band. The specification uses a modulation scheme known as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) that is especially well suited to use in office settings. The maximum data transfer rate is 54 Mbps., 802.11b802.11b is a WLAN standard often called Wi-Fi and is backward compatible with 802.11. Instead of the Phase-Shift Keying (PSK) modulation method used in 802.11 standards, 802.11b uses Complementary Code Keying (CCK) that allows higher data speeds and makes it less susceptible to multipath-propagation interference. 802.11b operates in the 2.4 GHz band and the maximum data transfer rate is 11 Mbps. or 802.11g802.11g offers transmission over relatively short distances at up to 54 Mbps, compared with the 11 Mbps theoretical maximum of 802.11b standard. 802.11g employs Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), the modulation scheme used in 802.11a, to obtain higher data speed. Computers or terminals set up for 802.11g can fall back to speed of 11 Mbps, so that 802.11b and 802.11g devices can be compatible within a single network.) Use the corresponding keywords a, b,or g.

remote

Shows AP association for bridge mode AP.

voip-only

Shows AP association for VoIPVoice over IP. VoIP allows transmission of voice and multimedia content over an IP network.-only clients.

Usage Guidelines

Use this command to check if user is connected to an AP. This command validates whether the client is associated and indicates the last AP to which it was connected. If the flags column shows an 'A', the client is currently associated with that AP. Alternately, if the client is not currently associated, the AP with the smallest value of association time is the last AP used by the client.

Example

Use the show ap association client-mac command to verify that a user has associated with an AP, or to determine last AP to which the client was connected. The output of this command in the example below shows the association table for the client with the MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address 00:1a:1e:aa:bb:cc. If the flags column in the output of this command shows an 'A', the client associated last to that AP. Alternately, the AP with the smallest value of association time is the last AP to which the client had associated.

In the example below, the output of this command has been broken into two separate tables to better fit this page. In the actual output of the command, this information is shown in a single, wide table.

Column

Description

Name

Name of an AP

bssid

The AP Basic Service Set Identifier (BSSIDBasic Service Set Identifier. The BSSID identifies a particular BSS within an area. In infrastructure BSS networks, the BSSID is the MAC address of the AP. In independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly.)

mac

MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address of the AP

1-int

Number of beacons in the 802.11802.11 is an evolving family of specifications for wireless LANs developed by a working group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). 802.11 standards use the Ethernet protocol and Carrier Sense Multiple Access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) for path sharing. listen interval. There are ten beacons sent per second, so a ten-beacon listen interval indicates a listen interval time of 1 second.

essid

Name that uniquely identifies the AP’s Extended Service Set Identifier (ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set.).

vlan-id

Identification number of the AP’s VLANVirtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN..

tunnel-id

Identification number of the AP’s tunnel.

assoc. time

Amount of time the client has associated with the AP, in the format hours:minutes:seconds.

num assoc

Number of clients associated with the AP.

flags

This column displays any flags for this AP. The list of flag abbreviations is included in the output of the show ap association command.
