IOS AP and SSID scan

Unanswered Question
May 7th, 2010


  I have AP with IOS. Do you know how to get the list of SSIDes that AP is receiving (listening)?

I need the same feature as SSID list which you can see when you are connecting on windows.

In better case a list with signal strength. Maybe there is there some monitoring mode....? I tried

show controller dot 0 etc, but without success. It looks that Cisco AP doesn't support this feature.

Kind regards,


I have this problem too.

Is this what you are looking for:  "sh dot11 bssid"

Don't forget to rate useful ports.   Thanks.

  it is not what I need. This displays only my SSIDes, but I need to get

list of all SSIDes that my AP is seeing/listening. I need to get a rogue ssid

list. In our area, there are many AP (my neighbors). I need to see,

which APes (in my neighborhood) are announcing SSIDed and their signal strength.

The same job do a software tool 'netstumbler'...

Kind regards,

  when I tried the command above, I get an empty list... See the result.

BaseAP#sh iapp rogue-ap-list
IAPP Rogue AP List:
The Rogue AP list is empty

Any other tips?

Kind regards,

You'll get better result if you use a WLC.  Without a WLC, how are you going to "triangulate" the rogue AP/Client?  DO you want to contain them?  Without a WLC, how do you expect to achieve this?
