Why does the software not show Access point map coverage between floors.

We are using the Cisco wireless control software to evaluate our wireless converate in the office using Cisco 1242 Access points. I have input the AP's into the relevant floor maps of a building however even though in real life you get signal through the floors, you do not get this show in the software. Does anybody know how to do this?

The Cisco software does not have this feature.  The 3rd party Airmagnet can do this, but the current version of Cisco cannot.

And you have the map editor tool, correct?

The first possible glitch is if you are using the legacy map tools - "Cisco recommends that you use the map editor to draw walls and other obstacles rather than importing an .FPE file from the legacy floor plan editor. If necessary, however, you can still import .FPE files. To do so, navigate to the desired floor area, chooseEdit Floor Area from the Select a Command drop-down menu, click GO,check the FPE File check box, and browse to and choose the .FPE file."
