How to check the signal of the users?

Hi guys,

 

I want to check the signal of a user, but I really don't know how to check in controller.

 

Could any one tell me how to do it?

If you are looking to see how to see RSSI for particular device, as seen by the AP then you can run the following command:

show wms client list | include <DEVICE MAC ADDRESS>

Also another way you can sort determine the signal is by looking at the SNR value

Using this command you can see the SNR value

You can also get the SNR value from the Dashboard using the controller GUI

Hi Victor,

 

Thank you. your post is very helpful.

 

And I heard about 802.11k that the client should send its information to AP include signal,SNR and all of SSID it can hear.

 

Use "show ap association", you can find out the devices which have that capacity showed with a K flag.

 

So if I want to check that infomation sent by devices, is there a command for it ?
