BSSID and AP MAC

Hi guys,

 

I have an IAP with MAC a8:bd:27:ca:79:14. I have configured one SSID, and when I check with my mobile this SSID I see a BSSID of a8:bd:27:27:91:41. Is this fine? I always thought that BSSID equals to AP MAC.

 

Regards,

Julián

Julian,

If you need to confirm which AP you are receiving WIFI from, this will let you paste in your AP's "hard address," then showing you all of the possible BSSID addresses (I think on the newer models, its possible to have 8--or maybe 16?--possible BSSIDs per AP)
