FortiWiFi and FortiAP Configuration Guide

Configuring the built-in access point on a FortiWiFi unit

Tooltip

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

end

To configure the FortiWiFi unit’s built-in WiFi access point
  1. Go to WiFi & and Switch Controller > Local WiFi Radio.
  2. Select a FortiAP profile to apply to the FortiWiFi access point (see Creating a FortiAP profile and select FortiWiFi local radio as the platform).
  3. Optionally, you can override settings configured in the FortiAP profile.
  4. Click Apply.

If you want to connect external APs such as FortiAP units, see Access point configuration.
