Overview


The radio connection status can be determined by logging onto the Cisco Meraki Dashboard and examining the details for the access point in question.


In addition to the Dashboard, each access point hosts its own webpage that can be utilized for monitoring and basic troubleshooting. This local status page is accessible by going to http://my.meraki.com while wirelessly connected to the desired access point. The page lists the current status of the AP, a list of neighbors and channels each are on and it also provides the ability to change the AP's IP address.

1. Dashboard method

a) Log into Dashboard and go to Monitor > Access Points.

b) Click the access point to view its details.

c) On the access point details page for "Channels", note the channel. If the access point is dual-band you will see a channel listed for each radio For example, "Channels: 1 , 149  means radio 1 is using channel 1 and radio 2 is using channel 149.

2. My.Meraki.com method

a) While associated to the desired access point, open your web browser and go to http://my.meraki.com.

b) Click the link "Mesh neighbors".

c) On the mesh neighbors page under "Neighboring Meraki Access Points" you will see the node name, the corresponding channel they are using and other helpful metrics. 

These steps can be helpful when mounting new directional antennas in outdoor installations.
