Legacy Open Mesh: What is a Datto Access Point's BSSID and how do I find it?

Follow

Question

What is an access point's BSSID, and how do I find the BSSID of an access point?

Environment

  • Open Mesh Access Points

Answer

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.

Windows

  1. Open a Command Prompt session and type netsh wlan show interfaces.
  2. Press Enter. The BSSID will be one of the values listed.

macOS

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.

Android

Use the WiFi Analyzer app (external link).

iOS

Use the app Network Analyzer Lite app (external link).
