How to check wireless information

Wireless connections, stations, and interfaces have different issues than other physical interfaces.

 

Troubleshooting station connection issue

To check whether station entry is created on Access Control:

FG600B3909600253 # diagnose wireless-controller wlac -d sta

* vf=0 wtp=70 rId=2 wlan=open ip=0.0.0.0 mac=00:09:0f:db:c4:03 rssi=0 idle=148 bw=0 use=2 vf=0 wtp=70 rId=2 wlan=open ip=172.30.32.122 mac=00:25:9c:e0:47:88 rssi=-40 idle=0 bw=9 use=2

 

Enable diagnostic for particular station

This example uses the station MAC address to find where it is failing:

FG600B3909600253 # diagnose wireless-controller wlac sta_filter 00:25:9c:e0:47:88 1

Set filter sta 00:25:9c:e0:47:88 level 1
