I'm not sure we display that information about the client devices in the GUI, but if you SSH in to an AP you can run the command "show station" and look at the Phymode column to see that.

Hi Sam,

thanks for the quick answer. Okay that helps but is in big deployments not an easy way to get an overview how many legacy clients there is and if we can get rid of them.. Would be cool to see Phymode in the client monitoring in the GUI. Feature request ; )

In ML insights > click the client box > scroll to 802.11 Standard > click the standard in the graph and it should update the list of clients connecting at that particular standard. I say should, because it was working but it doesn't seem to for me currently!

@Ashley Finch​  Cheers! Have you before been able to see the number of clients with a particular standard for a whole organisation (all clients)?

Hi Andi,

 

Yes, as long as you're in global view on the map topology and then moving the time slider to say 30 days in the clients section, then it would populate all of the clients from all sites in the given time period. But, as I say its not working currently :(

Hi Finch,

are you using HIQ for multiple organisations? I moved not to long ago the first dozen customer sites from classic to the new Extreme local cloud. If i view all organisations and go to ML Insights -> Clients 360 i get an error
