Hi.

I am managing a large number of access points placed at hotspots (hotels) at remote sites. A large number of these are old 350 points , and i suspect that some of them are not working as they should. Some are not carrying any traffic at all, and in the statistics for the TX-Radio all counters are 0, but there are no alarms/traps from the APs.

I suspect that eiter the radio RX or TX is faulty.

I can access the APs via GUI and SNMP.

Does anybody have an idea how to identify which APs are faulty without actually visiting the site?

Are they vxworks or have they been converted to IOS. If they are IOS, you can capture logs, run some debugs, etc if you can telnet to them and that may give you some more info.
