Client 802.11 Association Reject

802.11802.11 is an evolving family of specifications for wireless LANs developed by a working group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). 802.11 standards use the Ethernet protocol and Carrier Sense Multiple Access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) for path sharing. Association rejected for client [Client MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. ] to BSSIDBasic Service Set Identifier. The BSSID identifies a particular BSS within an area.

Captive portals are typically used by business centers, airports, hotel lobbies, coffee shops, and other venues that offer free Wi-Fi hotspots for the guest users. failure occurred for client [Client MAC] associated to BSSID [BSSID] of AP hostname [Device Hostname].

Client EAP Failure

EAPExtensible Authentication Protocol. An authentication protocol for wireless networks that extends the methods used by the PPP, a protocol often used when connecting a computer to the Internet. EAP can support multiple authentication mechanisms, such as token cards, smart cards, certificates, one-time passwords, and public key encryption authentication.  failure occurred for client [Client MAC] associated to BSSID [BSSID] on channel [Channel] of AP hostname [Device Hostname].

Client DHCP Acknowledged

DHCPDynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign an IP address to an IP-enabled device from a defined range of numbers configured for a given network.  acknowledgment received from DHCP server [DHCP Server IP] for client [Client MAC] ([Client IP]) associated to BSSID [BSSID] on channel [Channel] of AP hostname [Device Hostname].

Client DHCP Not Acknowledged

Client DNS Failure

DNSDomain Name System. A DNS server functions as a phone book for the intranet and Internet users. It converts human-readable computer host names into IP addresses and IP addresses into host names. It stores several records for a domain name such as an address 'A' record, name server (NS), and mail exchanger (MX) records. The Address 'A' record is the most important record that is stored in a DNS server, because it provides the required IP address for a network peripheral or element. failure to [Domain Name] detected for client [BSSID] on BSSID [BSSID] of AP hostname [Device Hostname].
