Controller-less WLANs

Why "Name" value isn't displayed for some clients in Instant Dashboard?

Environment : Instant AP deployment with SSID configured.

 

Hostname information isn't displayed under  Clients section of Instant User Interface.

Example :

The Name filed displays different information based on the type of SSID.

For PSK clients (no other authentication along with it) - The hostname is displayed and it is picked up from DHCP option sent by client.

For MAC Auth / 802.1x /Captive Portal clients,  username used to login is picked up during authentication and displayed.

In all scenarios; the information is provided by the client to be displayed by the interface.

 

For PSK clients; confirm if client sends DHCP option 12 by taking a packet capture on the client.

For Captive Portal clients / MAC Auth / 802.1x; confirm if client has passed authentication. If client hasn't passed authentication; then it's expected to have "Name" field blank.
