How do I figure out why some of the mesh links are not coming up in my mesh network?

Diagnosis

Solution

 

“show mesh neighbor” is a useful troubleshooting  command to figure out why specific mesh neighbors are not meshing with this AP. An example of the show mesh neighbors output is displayed below:

 

RadioMAC          Hostname         R MeshID           AuthType C Mode Chan RSSI     Time Q(Reasons)

00:17:7b:11:70:eb MSR4000-11:70:e7 3 CampusMesh       WPA2     4 na    165   44    0:0:0 Y

00:17:7b:2c:50:e3 M47_H92_baiwang  1 CampusMesh       WPA2     3 na    165   15    0:0:0 N([N])

00:17:7b:2b:c1:dd M44_Campus2BWS   0 CampusMesh       WPA2     3 na    165   50    0:0:0 N([N])

00:17:7b:11:71:26 MSR4000-11:71:23 2 CampusMesh       Open     4 na    116   18   0:7:29 N([A][N])

00:17:7b:11:70:cb MSR4000-11:70:c9 1 CampusMesh       WPA2     2 na     36   11  0:13:29 Y

00:17:7b:11:70:ca MSR4000-11:70:c9 0 CampusMesh       WPA2     6 na    165   10    0:0:6 Y

00:17:7b:11:70:e9 MSR4000-11:70:e7 1 CampusMesh       WPA2     4 na     36   29  0:19:58 Y

00:17:7b:2c:6d:08 MSR2000-2c:6d:06 1 CampusMesh       Open     5 na    140   16  0:16:29 N([A][N])

 

The following is an interpretation of the reason codes:

 

  S - Signal lower than limit;

  M - Mode not backhaul;

  I - Mesh ID mismatch;

  A - Authentication type mismatch;

  C - Denied by my channel-list;

  N - Denied by my neighbor-list;
