Enable Wireless on a Firebox Wireless Device

When you enable the wireless feature of your Firebox wireless device, you can configure the external interface to use wireless, or you can configure the Firebox as a wireless access point for users on specified networks. You can enable wireless clients to connect to the wireless device as part of the trusted network or part of the optional network. You can also use a custom network to enable a wireless guest services network for your device, or use bridge or VLAN networks in your wireless configuration.

Wireless networking on Firebox wireless devices is not supported when the Firebox is configured in Drop-In mode (Fireware OS v11.9 or higher).

Before you set up wireless network access, see Before You Begin.

Before you can enable the wireless feature on your Firebox, you must get the feature key. For more information, see About Feature Keys.
