    Meraki Wifi Stumbler

    Hello everyone,

    Meraki has made a small smart web-based application for planning a wireless
    network. The application is called Meraki Stumble, and you can start here
    http://meraki.com/tools/stumbler/.

    I've tried it on until now 5 PCs, but it does not work properly. The
    Stumbler starts well enough, but cannot see any wireless network. The PCs
    are all XP machines and I've used IE08 (but
    also unsuccessfully tried with Firefox and Safari). I have had other in my
    company trying and they too cannot get it to work.

    I've talked with Meraki - and they say they have not heard of problems
    elsewhere, and I cannot on Google find any other, who cannot get it to work
    around the world. It made me to think about something with the Danish
    versions of XP and IE08 -- but it would be very strange.

    The Stumbler is running as a Java applet and I have installed the latest
    version of Java on all PCs. One can wonder whether it has something to do
    with the Java applet must have access to the wireless network card in some
    way, and it could possibly somehow be a problem with the permission doing
    that.

    It is interesting that I have access to a MacBook, on which the Stumbler
    runs without problems in Safari.

    So I have following questions:

    1. Can you get stumbler to work on your PC (you must obviously have a
    wireless network card on the PC).
    2. If not - you have the slightest idea of what can be wrong (Setup of XP,
    setup of IE08, setup of Java, general safety settings or whatever)?

    It will help much if you would spend 1 minute to test if it works on your PC
    and tell the result to the group.

    PS! Together we can solve everything ....

    I tried it on an XP Pro Pentium 3 desktop with a Realtek 8187L USB wifi
    adapter and it worked with Firefox OK.

    I did notice that it was not consistent in that it sometimes would not
    identify a network (random selection), but always seemed to be just one
    of those available.

    Refreshing the scan would then see it, but it was a bit flakey in the
    way it operated.

    I wasn't all that impressed with it and consider Inssider to be a
    similar and better approach in my estimation. But of course that is
    not web based.

    Works fine. XP SP3 under FireFox 3.6. However, under IE
    8.0.6001.18702, I get a list of access points, but a blank graph
    showing the number of AP's. Both list all AP's as 802.11b, which is
    wrong. They're all 802.11g.

    Something might be blocking downloading Java applets. Check security
    settings and make sure Java is enabled in your browser.

    Go unto:
    Control Panel -> Java
    and check the "Network Settings". It should point to "Use Browser
    Settings" unless you have a proxy server running at your company.

    Verify that Java is correctly installed:
    <www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp>
    Current is V1.6.0_18

    I tried it under Explorer 8 on my Intel wifi card laptop and same same
    same problem as Jeff L - no graphs shown.

    Under Firefox (latest uodate) all OK.

    So it looks like it has a few problems.

    Please excuse my "same" repeats - it's a problem with Xanaview.

    I don't normally use IE but I have tried IE8(8.0.6001.18882) in Vista
    and in order to see the graph of AP's I had to use the "compatibility
    view" function from the "Page" or "Tools" drop down list. With or
    without using "compatibility view" I get a list of AP's correctly
    identified as 11g or 11n.

    Yep. I ran it again under IE 8, this time with the "compatibility
    view" enabled, and the graph shows. However, the list of AP's still
    show 802.11b for all the various neighborhood AP's. Probably
    something wrong with my Linksys WMP54G PCI card. The Meraki tool
    works correctly on my Toshiba something laptop.

    However, there's yet another bug/problem. I have dual SSID's enabled
    on my Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 wireless router. Both interfaces should have
    sequential MAC addresses. The Meraki utility reports them as:
    00:16:01:97:fd:a8
    02:16:01:97:fd:a9
    The 02 should be 00 and is wrong. Same problem with both IE8 and FF
    3.6.

    I assume you are running DD-WRT. I think this is a DD-WRT bug, I have
    just borrowed a G54 from my neighbour and set up 2 VAP's and when you
    check using Xirrus's WiFi Inspector you get the same problem. I also
    checked with a couple of other sniffers including Inssider and had the
    same problem. As a matter of interest the 2nd VAP's MAC did not follow
    sequentially but was 2 less than the "main" AP-
    AP ended E6
    VAP1 ended E7
    VAP2 ended E4

    From a usage point of view it won't be a bug as I suppose they are
    trying to avoid any MAC address conflicts with Buffalo products.

    Good point. MAC address duplication could become a problem. I should
    have checked the router. The Meraki tool is working correctly.

    However, I just noticed that they also changed the last octet as well
    as the first for the second SSID. No need to also change the last
    octet, unless this some old code from when Brainslayer didn't change
    the first octet.

    I'm running DD-WRT v24-sp2 (07/21/09) std. Hmmm... probably time to
    try the latest version.

    Do you mean v24-SP1? The website shows v24-SP1 as being the latest
    stable version, and v24-preSP2 as being the latest development
    release.

    Nope. I like running the bleeding edge firmware before I inflict
    anything on my coffee shop customers. I switched to SP2 for the
    multiple SSID feature.

    Incidentally, if you go to the download database at:
    <http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database>
    inscribe "whr-hp-g54" into the search box, and then click on the first
    item it finds, the recommended firmware version appears as:
    v24 preSP2 [Beta] Build 13064

    I guess my question was how are you running SP2 when it's not
    available yet? Unless you're just having a bit of fun with me. :)

    Exactly. No SP2 to be found anywhere, AFAICS. You just might be the
    only person running it.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "available". Pre-SP2 Beta versions have
    been available for download since about a year ago. There have been
    something like 10,000 builds. I was actively following the
    development last summer, when it seemed that there was a new build
    every day.

    Would you settle for Pre SP2 Beta or do you only run "released"
    software and firmware? There are some products available for general
    consumption that seem to be in a state of permanent beta test hanging
    on version 0.99999 seemingly forever. I had one company tell me that
    they'll release 1.0 as soon as they get more funding. There's some
    logic in that as users running Beta software assume all the
    responsibility for any and all failures, while released software
    magically is perceived to be the responsibility of the vendor.

    Incidentally, the version I'm using is not perfect. I have to reboot
    the router every 6 days or the PPTP VPN daemon simply dies for no
    obvious reason. Much of the development seems to revolve around
    cramming yet another feature into an already extremely small memory
    space. The usual result is breaking some other feature or function.

    By "available" I mean "exists", as in SP2 doesn't seem to exist yet.
    All I see on the dd-wrt site are pre-SP2 builds, with 'pre' meaning
    'before'. At some point it's reasonable to assume that one of those
    builds will become 'SP2', but they aren't there yet.

    Anyway, I think I simply took you too literally. I see (now) what you
    meant when you said you were running SP2.

    Just a note:-
    Bit 2 of the first octet is the Locally Administered Address
    (LAA) bit.

    I guess perhaps the Buffalo router only has one MAC address allocated
    for the interface or that the software makes such an assumption.

    I have a cisco 877W here with two SSIDs and it seems to
    allocate consecutive MAC addresses. No LAA bit set.
    Seems a decent chance that cisco have allocated each
    router a pool of addresses. Not sure tho'.

    Recently noticed that Vista with Intel 3945/abg refuses to
    accept changed mac addresses that do not have the LAA
    bit set.
