SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor can monitor any 802.11 IEEE‑compliant autonomous access point (AP) or wireless controller, and provide details about access points (AP), wireless clients, wireless controllers, thin APs, and rogue APs.

SolarWinds NPM automatically recognizes your wireless APs and controllers as wireless devices when they are added to the SolarWinds Platform database. See Discover and add network devices.

The wireless interfaces are not found during discovery process. When a wireless device is added and an inventory search is performed, each wireless interface found is added to the database and polling begins.
