Aerohive AP host name advertisement in beacon frames
I was pretty excited to test this out with Ekahau however during my survey I found out that no AP names are showing up in Ekahau. I did a quick packet capture and I can see them in wireshark, see below:
I was able to see AP Host Name under:
IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN
Tag: Vendor Specific: Aerohive
This looks just like Cisco’s type 7 password encryption and the numbers after the first 6 numbers actually represent the Access Points Name. This is currently not supported by Ekahau that is why I was unable to see them during my survey. Looking forward for Ekahau to start supporting this as this will be very useful while performing a survey.
