WatchGuard Access Point (AP)

You can connect WatchGuard APs to your Firebox internal networks to add wireless access to your network. There are two ways you can manage a WatchGuard AP:

WatchGuard Firebox Gateway Wireless Controller

You can use Gateway Wireless Controller on your Firebox to configure, manage, and monitor WatchGuard APs directly from the Firebox. You can connect multiple WatchGuard APs to the trusted, optional, or custom networks of a Firebox, and manage them from the Gateway Wireless Controller on the Firebox.

To configure WatchGuard APs from Gateway Wireless Controller, select Network > Gateway Wireless Controller in Fireware Web UI or Policy Manager.
