Creating a custom FAP profile

  1. Go to WiFi & Switch Controller > FortiAP Profiles and create a new profile.

    Set Platform to the FortiAP model you are using (in this example, FAP221C).

    Set the Country/Region.

    Set the AP Login Password.

    Under Radio 1, set Mode to Access Point.

    Leave SSIDs as Auto.

  2. Go to WiFi & Switch Controller > Managed FortiAPs and right-click the FortiAP you added earlier.

    Select Assign Profile and set the FortiAP to use the new SSID profile (in this example, MyProfile).

    By default, the FortiGate assigns all SSIDs to this profile.

    It might take a few minutes for the State column to show that the AP is Online.
