Configuring the built-in access point on a FortiWiFi unit
FortiWiFi does not support bridge mode SSIDs.
Both FortiGate and FortiWiFi units have the WiFi controller feature. If you configure a WiFi network on a FortiWiFi unit, you can also use the built-in wireless capabilities in your WiFi network as one of the access points.
If Virtual Domains are enabled, you must select the VDOM to which the built-in access point belongs. You do this in the CLI. For example:
config wireless-controller global
set local-radio-vdom vdom1
To configure the FortiWiFi unit’s built-in WiFi access point
- Go to WiFi & and Switch Controller > Local WiFi Radio.
- Select a FortiAP profile to apply to the FortiWiFi access point (see Creating a FortiAP profile and select FortiWiFi local radio as the platform).
- Optionally, you can override settings configured in the FortiAP profile.
- Click Apply.
If you want to connect external APs such as FortiAP units, see Access point configuration.
