The Wireless Summary view displays a list of all wireless access points (APs) and clients connected to each AP.

You can display the coverage of your wireless access points or the location of connected clients in a map. See Create wireless heat maps and View the location of clients connected to access points in maps.

Access point details include the AP name, IP address, device type, SSID, channels used, and the number of clients currently connected.

Client details include client name, SSID, IP Address, MAC Address, Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI), time connected, data rate, bytes received and bytes transmitted.

The following IPv6 statistics are currently not monitored:

  • Connections between wireless users and access points
  • Connections between thin access points and controllers

To view wireless access points and clients:

  1. Log into the Orion Web Console.
  2. Navigate to Wireless Summary View through My Dashboards > Wireless in the Network menu.
  3. In the Show list, select what you want to see (Access Points or Clients).
  4. To find an access point or client, type a search string into the Search field, and click Search. If there are too many items, select a Group By method to filter the result.
  5. To see clients currently connected to an access point, locate the access point, and expand the access point name.
  6. To display the details view for an access point, click the access point. The node details view is specific for the selected device. See Specify views for device types.
