Add a Firebox as a Trusted Access Point

If you have multiple Firebox wireless access points, you must add their information to the trusted access points list in the rogue access point detection configuration. To identify a trusted wireless access point, you specify wireless settings. Use these steps to find the settings for your wireless Firebox so you can add it to the trusted access point list.

The Rogue Access Point Detection feature for Firebox wireless devices is different than the Rogue Access Point Detection feature designed for WatchGuard AP devices managed by the Gateway Wireless Controller. For more information on Rogue Access Point Detection on the Gateway Wireless Controller, see Enable Rogue Access Point Detection with the Gateway Wireless Controller.

For information on the differences between Firebox wireless devices and WatchGuard AP devices, see WatchGuard Wireless Solutions.

Find the Settings for Your Trusted Firebox Access Points

To identify your Firebox access points as trusted, you must find the channel, SSID, and security settings.

A wireless Firebox can have up to three enabled wireless access points with different settings. If the wireless Firebox has multiple enabled access points, repeat these steps to get the information about each enabled access point. Repeat these steps for any other trusted wireless Fireboxes on your network.

Add the Trusted Access Points to the Trusted Access Point List

Add the trusted access point to the trusted access points list on the wireless device that performs the rogue access point scan.
