Q:

How to check the channels supported by a particular wireless client using controller's CLI?

 



A:

We can check the channels supported by a particular wireless client using controller's CLI using the CLI command,

(Controller) #show ap virtual-beacon-report client-mac <client mac-id>


Example:

(Controller) #show ap virtual-beacon-report client-mac e8:99:c4:7e:3f:41 


Client MAC :e8:99:c4:7e:3f:41
Current association :AP325-2 (ac:a3:1e:53:66:b0)
Steer attempts/Success :7/0
Consecutive (Fails/BTM Rej/BTM Timeouts) :1/0/0
Bandsteer window (Steers/Start time/Expiry time) :1/Jun 14 08:45:13/Jun 14 09:15:13
Client Device Type :Android
Current state :Unsteerable
Active media sessions :No
Client Supported Channels :{1,11}{36,4}{52,4}{100,8}{149,4}{165,1} -----——————————> channels supported by a client

Current Time :Jun 15 10:29:59 2015

 

Here: 

Client Supported Channels are {1,11}{36,4}{52,4}{100,8}{149,4}{165,1} 

This means  {X,Y} is a set of legit contiguous channels where X is the minimum value and Y is the spectrum size. 

Example:

{36, 4}  is equivalent to {36, 40, 44, 48}.
{1, 11}  is equivalent to {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11}
