    Hi everyone.

    I have Mobility Conductor and Airewave.
    I want to detect and block Wifi bridge devices.
    I configured like this, but it doesn't work.
    Hope everyone can help with this installation and if the Wifi bridge is discovered, where will it be reported?

    It should show up in the logging or controller dashboard at least, and I'd suppose in Airwave as well but I don't have an Airwave to validate that.

    Here is the documentation for the Wireless IDS/IPS.

    Note that the Wireless Bridge detection relies on the client MAC address to be bridged (seen both to the network and between the bridge and the client). If you have a travel-router, that performs NAT and does not bridge traffic; so won't be detected by that signature.
