Tracking Bandwidth

If the access point supports SNMP, then MRTG, RRDTool, or a wide variety of SNMP based utilities will draw nice looking graphs.

However, if your access point does not support SNMP, then you can build a scripting tool that will extract the same information from a web page. For example, this Java program will extract the numbers from a WGT624.

As always, it would be nice to know what you are trying to accomplish and what you have to work with.

Hi again, Jiten.

Which bandwidth do you mean? Your client will probably give you the data rate you are connected to the AP with, but there's no sure way of knowing the bandwidth that the AP is connected to the rest of the world, though traceroute will give you some hints.

There is no such thing as "bandwidth strength", though Windows Performance Monitor can monitor connected bandwidth on a particular NIC.

Is there any chance you can tell us why you need to know, if this this schoolwork, research, or business related, or what it is you are trying to accomplish? Operating system, even?

Hi All,

How we will programmatically get the information of the Bandwidth of

an access point.

Otherwards how we will keep track of the bandwidth strength of an

access point.
