COTD: Find out the speed and duplex that an APs Ethernet port negotiated

We all know that endpoint performance is degraded when that station does not negotiate his speed and duplex correctly with a switch. The same issue occurs with an AP that did not negotiate to that switchport correctly. To find out what speed/duplex and AP negotiated to, use the "show ap debug system-status" command and grep for "Ethernet" (case-sensitive):

(Aruba800-4) #show ap debug system-status ap-name ConferenceRoom-1 | begin Ethernet
Ethernet Duplex/Speed Settings
Autoneg Speed (Mbps) Duplex Iface
------- ------------ ------ -----
on 100 Full bond0

You can also substitute the ap-name parameter with ip-addr to query by ap ip address instead.
