The WAP Radio monitor uses SNMP authentication to determine the status of a Cisco Aironet wireless access point.
First, the monitor first checks the ifType (OID 220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1.3) value. The ifType value of 71 - IEEE 80211 must be present for the monitor to continue checking the WAP radio device status. Then, if the ifType value is true, the ifAdminStatus (OID: 22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.1.7) value is checked. If the ifAdminStatus value for the interface is in the Down or Testing state, the active monitor is considered Down and the ifOperStatus (OID: 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.1.8) value is checked. If the ifOperStatus value is 1 - Up or 5 - Dormant, the WAP radio is determined to be in the Up state. Otherwise, the device is considered to be in the Down state.
