The Topology tool in Nebula helps network admins see and understand their network setup. With the new update in Nebula Phase 17.20, you can now see all devices including clients in the network by ticking the "Show all clients" box.

Show all clients:

When you tick the "Show all clients" box, the Topology tool will show every end device connected to the network, whether through cables or wirelessly.

For example, in the picture below, you can see 5 wireless devices, including an NWA50AX, connected to a NAP203 AP. However, the color of the link between NWA50AX and NAP203 AP is different from the others. Let’s find out why.

Understanding different connection types:

To know what the different colors mean, click on the Info icon on the same page. From the above topology:

  • The NWA50AX is connecting to the NAP203 AP through a Mesh connection, shown by a green dot link.
  • The other 4 devices are connecting to the NAP203 AP through WiFi, shown by an orange dot link.

More cool stuff:

The Topology tool has got some new features to make it easier and more fun to use. These include:

  • Collapse and Expand
  • Download PDF
  • Zoom In/Out
  • Re-center

Note:

The Topology feature is now available on Nebula Plus/Pro Pack.
