Hi All,

I would like to know that my AP is working in root mode or workgroup bridge mode. I can check it via web browser. Just curious how to check it via IOS command. Thanks in advance.

Thank you, Rob.

Maybe I should be more specific. How to verify current working mode?

For example, I can issue "show controllers Dot11Radio 0" to verify the current working channel. I suspect there is also a similar IOS command to verify the current working mode.

Hi Robert,

Perform the "show run interface dot0" command to show the running-configuration for your dot11radio0 interface. Look for the command line that starts with "station-role". This will tell you what role your radio is in.

For example, if it is "station-role root bridge", the radio is configured as a root bridge. If it's just "station-role root", then it's configured as an infrastructure AP.

This is what Rob is saying, but a bit more specific. I don't know of there being a "show" command that states what the radio's role is.
