TitleExtremeWireless Access points connecting at 100Mb when it should be 1Gb
Question
How can I tell if my Access Points are actually running at the fully supported 1 Gb port speed?
Environment
ExtremeWireless Access Points
IdentiFi Access Points
Any firmware
Answer
For the recently released 10.31.xx firmware track, in the Home Page Health section, there is a new entry for 'APs with link problem'.  Click on this link, and the pop-up window will show all APs not connected at the full 1 Gb speed and duplex.

For all previous ExtremeWireless firmware tracks (10.21.xx and lower):
  • Please us ExtremeControl to monitor the switch ports where Access Points are connected.
  • SSH to the switches where the Access Points are connected and issue a port status command.
Additional notes
From the 10.31.01 Release Notes, under the 'New Features in V10.31.01.0048' section:

Reporting of AP LAN Link speed and duplex
 The AP inventory report was enhanced to display the negotiated link speed and duplex information for the AP LAN ports.
 A new health check indicator will identify APs with link connections not matching their optimal configuration.
