What is an access point's BSSID, and how do I find the BSSID of an access point?
- Open Mesh Access Points
The BSSID is the MAC address of the radio interface to which the client interface is currently connected.
- You may need to know the BSSID to determine the access point to which the client device is connected.
- Each access point has a range of MAC addresses assigned to it. The BSSID will not precisely match the MAC address listed in CloudTrax.
- Open a Command Prompt session and type
netsh wlan show interfaces.
- Press Enter. The BSSID will be one of the values listed.
Hold the Option key while clicking the Wi-Fi icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. You will see the BSSIDs in the drop-down menu.
