WiFi - get mac address of individual access point for a given broadcast name

RonGrabowskiRonGrabowski USMember, University

I'm still rather new to Android and very new to WiFiManager. My phone sees one named wireless network that is actually several access points. How can I enumerate through all the underlying access points to get their MAC and signal strength?

I'm trying to very simply mimic the scanning functionality of a tool like WiFi Anaylzer:

to query for a list of access points, their MAC addresses, and signal strength:

I found some stackoverflow articles but they explain how to scan for wireless networks or enable wifi, not the access points that belong to the wireless network:

I'm not sure what I should be searching for...


  • We are trying to accomplish the same thing!!!
    Any luck pulling MAC addresses from a network or routers?
