Setting up a WiFi Bridge with a FortiAP

In this example, you set up a WiFi network with a FortiGate managing a FortiAP in Bridge mode.

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

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