1242AP how to check signal strength

I have a 1242 set up as a bridge tied to a solid dish. About 3 miles away I have 3 yagis set up as a non bridge working fine. I set a forth yagi say 800 ft away from a working yagi and the siginal works for a few minutes and then shuts down so I mounted a 50 ft. tower same problem so i replaced the yagi with a solid dish yesterday and my connection lasted the day and this morning it was down again.

There has to be a way to see the signal strength but I don't see it in the configuration. I swaped the unit with the one at a working location and it works just fine. The only thing I haven't done is try a different cable. I'm using a 100ft premade cable from Cisco.

Any help is greatly appriciated

show dot11 associations all

typically shows signal strength, and SNR along with a few otehr details when users connect.. While i have no experience with bridges, i would expect that this would have the same effect.

Hope it works for you.
