How do I do a link test on a Cisco 1310 Aironet?

I am in the process of relacing my Cisco 350 aironet with 1310 Aironet and would like to do a link test on the 1310 aironets. This gives me an indication on the signal strenght to and from the station.

I know were to find the test from the 350 series but can not find were this same test is in the 1310 Aironet.

can anybody tell me were this test can be found on the 1310 aironets?

Your response would be very much appriciated.

Thank you

Hi Alben,

Running the Ping or Link Test

You can use the ping or link test to evaluate the communication link with an associated wireless device. The ping or link test provides two modes of operation:

•Uses a specified number of packets and then displays the test results.

•Continuously operates until you stop the test and then displays the test results.

Follow these steps to activate the ping or link test:


Step 1 Use your web browser to access the access point browser interface.

Step 2 Click Association and the main association page appears.

Step 3 Click the MAC address of an associated wireless device and the Statistics page for that device appears.

Step 4 Click the Ping/Link Test tab and the Ping/Link Test page appears.

Step 5 If you want to specify the number of packets to use in the test, follow these steps:

a. Enter the desired number of packets in the Number of Packets field.

b. Enter the desired packet size in the Packet Size field.

c. Click Start. The test automatically stops when all packets are used.

Step 6 If you want to use a continuous test, follow these steps:

a. Enter the desired packet size in the Packet Size field.

b. Click Start to activate the test.

c. When desired, click Stop to stop the test.

When the test stops, the test results are displayed at the bottom of the page. You should check for lost packets that might indicate a possible problem with the wireless link. For best results, you should perform this test several times.
