WiFi certification has certain hardware and software requirements.
To certify WiFi devices, you need the following hardware.
Latest version of the Oracle Solaris 11 OS installed on SUT.
Access Point (AP) - The TM system must have one or more APs to certify the WiFi cards. Ensure that the APs support all the transfer modes and encryption protocols needed to complete a certification. Refer to the respective WiFi card manual for supported transfer modes and encryption protocols that are being tested. Refer to the manual of APs for transfer modes and encryption protocols that are supported by the APs. Refer to WiFi card certification manual test guidelines to know how to set up the WiFi testing environment.
The TM system must have one functional network port for each wireless network port on the SUT. The TM system must have at least the same number of network ports as the number of wireless network ports as that of the SUT. Each port on the TM system must connect to an AP that a wireless network port in SUT can connect to. The TM system cannot have more than five ports than the number of SUT wireless network ports.
To disable the NWAM service, type the following commands in the terminal.
# netadm enable -p ncp defaultfixed # svcadm enable svc:/network/physical:default
Ensure that the TM system is correctly connected to the SUT.
Each wireless network port of the WiFi card to be certified must be connected to one dedicated AP. Each AP involved in the testing must be connected to one network port in the TM system.
Refer to the manual of the particular AP to know about configuring different transfer modes and encryption protocols of the AP. From the manual, you can also check how to enable or disable DHCP of the AP.
In the automatic network setup mode, Oracle HCTS assigns a particular range of IP addresses to the TM system and a different range of IP addresses to the SUT.
Network devices on the TM system must allow their IP addresses to be temporarily changed to 10.10.n.11/24, where n is 10, 11, or 12 for multiple ports.
Network devices on the SUT must allow their IP addresses to be temporarily changed to 10.10.n.10/24, where n is 10, 11, or 12 for multiple ports.
All the network devices between the TM system and the SUT must allow the specified IP addresses. If you are testing the DHCP capability of a wireless network port, be sure to enable DHCP on AP and change the IP address pool of the AP to have the IP address 10.10.n.10/24, where n is 10, 11, and 12, for the multiple ports. The AP must be in the same network segment of the network port on the connected TM system.
