If the SSID is not being broadcast then the WAP is not functioning correctly and a network connection cannot be established. Listed below are the most common reasons that a WAP is not broadcasting the expected SSID.
- WAP does not have electrical power (e.g. power outage)
- WAP has been reconfigured (e.g. the SSID name has been changed)
- WAP antenna is malfunctioning (e.g. is broken, missing, or has been pointed the wrong direction)
The Komodo Association Test is the first Komodo Test that is executed during a test run and is designed to confirm that the expected SSID is being broadcast by the WAP and that a client device can make a valid association to that SSID.
