The output of this command includes the following information:

Column

Description

bss

Basic Service Set (BSSBasic Service Set. A BSS is a set of interconnected stations that can communicate with each other. BSS can be an independent BSS or infrastructure BSS. An independent BSS is an ad hoc network that does not include APs, whereas the infrastructure BSS consists of an AP and all its associated clients. ) identifier, which is usually the AP’s MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address.

ess

Extended Service Set (ESSExtended Service Set. An ESS is a set of one or more interconnected BSSs that form a single sub network. ) identifier; a user-defined name for a wireless network.

vlan

In independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly.’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. number.

IP

The AP’s IP address.

phy

One of the following 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. types

preamble

Shows if short preambles are enabled for 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./g radios. Network performance may be higher when short preamble is enabled. In mixed radio environments, some 802.11b802.11b is a WLAN standard often called Wi-Fi and is backward compatible with 802.11.

It refers to a Wi-Fi Alliance interoperability certification, based on the IEEE 802.11e standard. It provides basic QoS features to IEEE 802.11 networks. WMM prioritizes traffic according to four ACs: voice (AC_VO), video (AC_VI), best effort (AC_BE), and background (AC_BK)., also known as IEEEInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. 802.11e802.11e is an enhancement to the 802.11a and 802.11b specifications that enhances the 802.11 Media Access Control layer with a coordinated Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) construct. It adds error-correcting mechanisms for delay-sensitive applications such as voice and video. The 802.11e specification provides seamless interoperability between business, home, and public environments such as airports and hotels, and offers all subscribers high-speed Internet access with full-motion video, high-fidelity audio, and VoIP.
