Re: Guest wireless clients appearing as wired

What is IDS?  And how is it enabled/disabled?

Re: Guest wireless clients appearing as wired

IDS is under IPS in Settings.  Its Intrusion Detection System & Intrusion Prevention System.  Its a really good security feature especially in guest eviroments where you have no idea what sites guests are trying to visit or what they are opening or downloading.

 

IDS only dectects and notifies of potention threats

 

IPS detects and drops packets for threats

It's Intrusion Detection System / Intrusion Prevention System.  It's enabled in Settings > IPS:

Re: Guest wireless clients appearing as wired

Ah, got it.  Thanks.

I checked and IDS/IPS are already disabled on my controller.

Re: Guest wireless clients appearing as wired

Add another "me too" to the list.

 

This has been manifesting itself for me with unauthenticated clients who connect to my wireless network showing up as wired connections.

 

I've also noticed when a device disconnects due to range (i.e. driving away from the house with phone in pocket), the device gradually goes from being associated to the AP to being associated to the switch port, to being associated with the USG, then finally leaving the clients list 20-30 minutes after it physically left the networked area.

 

This seems like a trivial issue to fix -- if a device isn't physically (wired) connected to the network, why should it ever show up as having a physical (wired) connection?

Also having this issue with latest controller and (stable candidate) firmwares on all APs.

It's the same problem with 5.9.29-11384-1. Full UniFi system with USG Pro. Will it be fixed?

Re: Guest wireless clients appearing as wired

5.10.12, using a USG I am still seeing the same things but it registers wireless clients connected to my USG anything from cell phones, to nintendo system. Sometimes they'll show up on the correct AP...

Any updates on when this is going to be fixed?

+1 This is still a problem also in 2019. I have not disabled IDS/IPS because I would like to use this. But especially i devices get 'wired' to the USG after leaving the building.

Not fixed. Fix is coming, don't know when. Ubiquiti does not provide info on when new releases will come.
