Right, My school has recently had Cisco wireless AP's installed, to cover the entire school with wireless network access.
All but three of these access points work correctly, and unfortunately, one of those three is in my office.
With the Cisco AP's when nothing is connected to it, the light on the underside is Green, and when something IS connected to it, the light turns Blue.
The one in my room and and one of the Business Studies rooms stays Green ALL the time, and the signal is picked up from the nearest AP which is EXTREMELY low signal, and drops all the time.
When I went to the switch cabinet that the AP's are wired to, I unplugged my AP, and to my suprise, the AP in the Buisness Studies room went Blue, and the laptop in that room got 100% signal. As soon as I plugged mine back in, it doesnt work again.
The county council ICT centre havent told me much, but I am under the impression that each access point has its own IP address?
What tools are there available that I can install on a wireless enabled laptop to survey each of the AP's? Such as IP address, MAC, SNR, etc etc, cause I'd really like to see if there is something up with the AP's.
The county council ICT centre have just told me to leave it with them, but I'd rather sort the problem out now rather than wait 2 or 3 weeks for them to come out and go "We'll get back to you"
Any help is appreciated
