Column

Description

bssid

Basic Service Set ID (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.) of the client.

auth

This column displays a y if the AP has been configured for 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. authorization frame types. Otherwise, it displays an n.

assoc

This column displays a y if the AP has been configured for 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. association frame types. Otherwise, it displays an n.

aid

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.

l-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

Extended Service Set ID (ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set.) of the client.

vlan-id

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. ID of the 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. used by the client.

tunnel-id

Identification number for the tunnel.

state

If the client has been both authorized and associated, this data column will display auth-assoc. If the client has only been authorized, this data column will display auth.

Reason

If the client failed to authenticate, this data column lists the reason code for 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. authentication failure.
