Quick request of anyone who has a MSM430, 460, or 466

If you have one of the above models working well on your network, could you please access the web interface and see which MAC address is presented to the LAN (ethernet) interface, and then see if that matches what's returned by arp?

For example:

 

If I go to the web interface for one of my APs, I can get this data without even logging in:

Current IP address: 172.16.0.63

Ethernet base MAC address: 98:4B:E1:E8:E3:F3

Wireless MAC address (radio 1): 98:4B:E1:2D:A8:60

Wireless MAC address (radio 2): 98:4B:E1:2D:A8:70

 

On a Mac and Linux (not sure how you do this one in Windows), I can ping the IP and then do an arp -n find out the MAC address that is in the arp cache for that IP. When I do, it shows the radio 1 MAC address, *not* the ethernet MAC--

i.e. 

Mac:~ admin$ ping 172.16.0.63

PING 172.16.0.63 (172.16.0.63): 56 data bytes

64 bytes from 172.16.0.63: icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.373 ms

^C

Mac:~ admin$ arp -n 172.16.0.63? (172.16.0.63) at 98:4b:e1:2d:a8:60 on en3 ifscope [ethernet]

 

Not sure why, wondering if it is related to my intermittent issues? Is this normal behavior, or does it indicate an incorrect configuration? TIA for any response.

Re: Quick request of anyone who has a MSM430, 460, or 466

Hi,

 

I have E-MSM466 AP's and arp shows the Port1 ethernet base MAC-address:

 

From web management, AP:s information:

Ethernet base MAC: 98:ee:oo:yy:xx:C7

 

C:\Windows\System32>arp -a 192.168.1.3
  Internet-address      Physical address      Type
  192.168.1.3           98:ee:oo:yy:xx:C7     dynamic

Regards,

OLLI
