WiFi Certification Using the Manual Network Setup

Perform the following steps to start the WiFi certification by using a manual network setup.

To Start a WiFi Certification Manually

  1. Create a security object.

    To run the test under an encryption protocol, type the following command to create a security object.

    # dladm create-secobj -c wep|wpa security object name

    When prompted for the value of the object, type the key or pass phrase that you have set.

    To check whether the security object is created successfully, use the following command.

    # dladm show-secobj
  2. Plumb the target interface by typing the following command.
    # ifconfig interface name plumb

    Note - Type the dladm show-wifi command to get a list of the existing interface names.
  3. Check the availability of the wireless network.

    To check the availability of the wireless network with the name that you have set, type the following command.

    # dladm scan-wifi interface name

    If the wireless network that you set up does not appear in the output of the above command, check the settings and setup of your AP. Retype the above command until the wireless network appears in the output.

  4. Check the connection status of the target interface, by typing the following command.
    # dladm show-wifi interface name

    If the status of the interface is connected, type the following command to disconnect the interface.

    # dladm disconnect-wifi interface name

    Wait for a few minutes and type dladm show-wifi interface name to recheck until the status changes to disconnected.

  5. Connect to the wireless network with the name that you have set. Perform any one of the following steps.
    • If the wireless network is not encrypted, type the following command to connect.
      # dladm connect-wifi -e <wireless network name> interface name
    • If the wireless network is encrypted, type the following command to connect.
      # dladm connect-wifi -e wireless network name -k security object name -s wep|wpa interface name
  6. To check the wireless connection status, type the following command.
    # dladm show-wifi interface name
  7. Get the IP address from the AP for this interface by typing the following command.
    # ifconfig interface name dhcp

    Type the following command to verify the connection

    # TM: ping <TM's IP address>
  8. Start the Oracle HCTS UI.
  9. Set up the network.

    If the current network setup mode is automatic, set it to manual by changing the following value.

    # manual network setup=true
  10. Rescan the system.
  11. Select the card that you want to certify, and start the certification.
