Description

Default

ap-name <ap-name>

Name of the candidate AP for Wi-FiWi-Fi is a technology that allows electronic devices to connect to a WLAN network, mainly using the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio bands. Wi-Fi can apply to products that use any 802.11 standard. client.

default

bssid <bssid>

Name of the required 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 AP.

ip-addr <ip-addr>

The output of this command includes the following information:

Column

Description

essid

Name of the required ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. to which the client is associated.

bssid

Name of the required 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. to which the client is associated.

channel

The radio channel used by the AP.

rssi

The Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSIReceived Signal Strength Indicator. RSSI is a mechanism by which RF energy is measured by the circuitry on a wireless NIC (0-255). The RSSI is not standard across vendors. Each vendor determines its own RSSI scale/values.) of the AP radio.

encryption

The encryption type used on the AP.

phy

The 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. 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.)

rank

The rank details of the AP.

up time

Number of hours, minutes and seconds since the discovered AP starts the 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. service or advertises the beacon, in the format hours:minutes:seconds.

last update (total updates)

Date and time stamp of the last AP update.
