You can view rogue APs on the Monitor > Access Points > Rogue APs page.

By default, HiveManager displays all APs discovered by the managed HiveAPs and that do not comply with a WIPS policy. There are several ways that you can filter which APs are displayed in the list. Select one of the following display categories at the top of the page:

  • All—(Default display setting) All detected rogue APs are displayed.

  • In-net—HiveManager displays only rogue APs that are in the same network as the HiveAPs that detected them. (Note that HiveAPs can only detect if a rogue AP is in the same subnet as itself if the rogue AP has at least one active client and is using the same radio channel as the HiveAP. For more information, see "WIPS Policy Settings".)

  • On-map—If three HiveAPs detect the same rogue AP, they can use the RSSI values to triangulate its position and determine if it is on one of the maps in the Topology section of the GUI.

  • Strong RSSI—HiveManager displays all rogue APs whose RSSI value is greater than the signal strength threshold, which is -75 dBm by default. (You can change the threshold by clicking Settings > Signal Strength Threshold and choosing a different value for the threshold.)

  • Weak RSSI—HiveManager displays all rogue APs whose RSSI value is less than the signal strength threshold.
