To work with FortiGate NP7 platforms, current FortiAP models whose names end with letter E or F should be upgraded to the following firmware versions:
- FortiAP (F models): version 6.4.7, 7.0.1, and later
- FortiAP-S and FortiAP-W2 (E models): version 6.4.7, 7.0.1, and later
- FortiAP-U (EV and F models): version 6.2.2 and later
- FortiAP-C (FAP-C24JE): version 5.4.3 and later
The CAPWAP offloading feature of FortiGate NP7 platforms is not fully compatible with FortiAP models that cannot be upgraded (as mentioned above) or legacy FortiAP models whose names end with the letters B, C, CR, or D. To work around this issue for these FortiAP models, administrators need to disable
config system npu and then reboot the FortiGate.
