Detecting what AP your attached to.

I have implemented about 30 1200 Series AP's throughout our production facility. We use LEAP to attach to our wireless network. My problem is that I have so many AP's and I have no way of telling which AP I am attached to when on the wireless network. The client I am using sucks, I can only see the SSID.

My question is there a utility out there that can tell as I move about the facility what AP I am attached to?

Re: Detecting what AP your attached to.

odyssey client will give you the MAC of the radio to which you've associated. Are you using a WLSE with your APs? there are some reporting features available in the WLSE.

Option 1 (WDS Running)

sh wlccp wds mn

Option 2

Login to each AP and look at the output of

sh dot11 assoc
