Monitor Radios

In Discover, the Monitor > WiFi > Radios page shows the status of all AP radios on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. The page also includes a list of clients that are recently associated to the selected radio. The list of recent associations are those that occurred in the last four hours or the latest 100 clients. This value is the total number of associations in the system and not per device.

You can freeze columns, add or remove columns, filter the display, and switch to full screen mode using the icons at the top-right of the page. For more information, see Table Actions for Monitor Pages.

The data in the columns represent live data updated every 15 minutes.
