The Access Point Status page is viewable from the Access Point list at Wireless > Access Points. Click on any access point to view the Access Point Status Page. The Access Point Status Page contains the following information:
- Identifying information (such as serial number, model, tags, and location)
- Configured IP address information (IP address, address assignment method, default gateway, and DNS servers assigned to uplink)
- The public IP address that is currently being used to communicate with the Meraki Cloud
- A link to the network's Topology page (for combined networks only)
- Link to the access point Event Log
- Configuration status information indicating whether the configuration of the access point is up to date
- Configured firmware information indicating whether the access point is on the latest available production firmware, and a link to the page where an update can be performed or scheduled if one is available
By clicking Edit configuration, you can edit the name, notes, tag, and location information for the MR device. You can also remove the device by clicking Remove from this network.
Live tools allow network administrators to troubleshoot and debug networking issues remotely. For example:
- Click Uplink traffic to see real-time uplink utilization
- Click Channel Utilization to see a graphical view of the channel utilization on the channels the AP is currently operating on. If the access point has a dedicated scanning radio, the channel utilization across the spectrum may be also available here.
- Click ARP Table to view the current ARP table of the MR access point.
- Click Ping to ping the MR access point from the Meraki Cloud or to ping a specified destination based on hostname, IP, or MAC address.
- Click Traceroute to identify and troubleshoot potential routing issues by performing a traceroute to the specified host.
- Click Throughput to run a throughput test between the MR access point and meraki.com.
- Determine which access point in the Dashboard corresponds to a particular physical access point by issuing a Blink LEDs command on the Dashboard and seeing which physical access point's LEDs begin blinking. This tool is useful if you need to verify an access point remotely for an on-site technician.
- Click Reboot appliance to reboot the access point .
