Extreme - How to disconnect a client from an AP in XIQ


There are two options to disconnect a client device (aka, disassociate) from an AP in ExtremeCloud IQ (XIQ).

  • Option 1. via CLI Commands


▶ Option 1-1. via CLI Commands on XIQ


On ExtremeCloud IQ (XIQ), go to Manage -> Devices -> Select an AP -> Actions -> Advanced -> CLI Access



Execute one of the following commands. The 'clear auth station mac <macaddr>' command will disassociate a specific station.


clear auth roaming-cache mac <macaddr>
→ roaming-cache: Clear all entries from the roaming cache, which contains authentication information for stations currently connected to neighboring hive members

clear auth roaming-cache mac <macaddr> hive-all
→ hive-all: Clear the MAC address from the local roaming cache and from the roaming caches of all hive members

clear auth local-cache mac <macaddr>
→ local-cache: Clear all entries from the local cache, which contains authentication information for stations currently connected to the local HiveAP

clear auth station mac <macaddr>
→ station: Clear authentication information for a specific station


▶ Option 1-2. via CLI Commands with SSH into AP


Use an ssh client in Windows or a Terminal program in macOS to ssh into an AP directly.

ssh admin@192.168.1.215 (macOS)

And then use the same commands stated as above Option 1-1.


  • Optioin 2. via GUI on XIQ


On ExtremeCloud IQ (XIQ), go to ML Insights -> Network 360 Monitor -> Topology -> Right click on the AP and click 'Disconnect' on the client.
