Unanswered Question

I am usint the site survey option o nthe 7921g phone. It will display the channel, bssid, rssi, and CU. I am trying to track the BSSID to a particular access point. I thought it was a part of the mac address but it is not. The mac address of the access point ends in 4d:20. The BSSID on the site survey says it is 4d:22. How do I track a BSSID on the site survey to the actual access point it is showing?

This is because you have MBSSID enabled. This is enabled by default on Cisco WLAN controller and can't be disabled, where it is optional with autonomous APs.

So depending on how many SSIDs you have and with MBSSID enabled it could be 4d:20, 4d:21, 4d:22, 4d:23, etc. Will show as 4d:20 in the controller as the base radio mac.

In the next major release of 7921 software we will add hostname to the list, so will make ap identification easier.
