Fastest way to identify AP connected to a 10/100Mbps port

Hi ,

 

I'm trying to be creative this morning. What would be the most efficient or fastest way to identify AP connected to a 10 or 100 Mbps port ?

 

The only way I'm aware right now is via switchport statuses and look if an AP is connected via LLDP/CDP or device name , then look for "warnings" ['1 Gigabit link failed, speed downshifted']

 

What if the speed was negociated to 100Mbps , that won't show up , right ?

 

 

Cheers,

You mean the https://developer.cisco.com/meraki/api-v1/get-device-switch-ports-statuses/ call?

 

It directly gives you the current speed and duplex info for each port, so just match on the connected device to see if it's an AP, no need to look at warnings.

 

Probably more efficient is https://developer.cisco.com/meraki/api-v1/get-organization-wireless-devices-ethernet-statuses/ which has the AP's own info on the speed.

Indeed... I just noticed that endpoint supports exactly what I wanted. I adjusted my scripts !

 

I just wished that getOrgDevicesStatus would simply return the negociated speed for a MR or an other endpoint.

 

I'm lucky to be able to run a full Meraki stack. Without MS switches this would be hard to achieve !
