Setting up WiFi with a FortiAP

In this recipe, you will set up a WiFi network with a FortiGate managing a FortiAP in Tunnel mode.

You can configure a FortiAP unit in either Tunnel mode or Bridge mode. Tunnel mode is the default mode for a FortiAP. A FortiAP in Tunnel mode uses a wireless-only subnet for wireless traffic. When a FortiAP is in Bridge mode, the Ethernet and WiFi interfaces are connected (or bridged), allowing wired and wireless networks to be on the same subnet.

For information about using a FortiAP in Bridge mode, see Setting up a WiFi Bridge with a FortiAP.
