BSSID

Am using the netsh wlan show interfaces command to try to identify which AP I am associating too and its giving me a BSSID which I thought was the Mac of the AP but they are different. Hope this makes sense. Am I using the wrong command?., Thanks in advance.

Re: BSSID

An AP has multiple BSSIDs based on the SSID that you connect to and the band.  It will not equal the wired mac, but will be a number of bytes offset...

Re: BSSID

Thanks Colin, so you cannot tell from the BSSID to what AP you are connected too.

Re: BSSID

You would have to cross-reference the BSSID in the Netsh command with the "show ap bss-table" output on each AP.
