In areas with limited or no existing network infrastructure, you can use your XTM wireless device to provide secure network access. You must physically connect your network devices to the XTM device. Then you configure your external interface to connect to a wireless access point that connects to a larger network.
When the external interface is configured with a wireless connection, the XTM wireless device can no longer be used as a wireless access point. To provide wireless access for users, connect a wireless access point device to the XTM wireless device.
To use a static IP address, select this option. Type the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway you use to connect to the wireless network.
To configure the external interface as a DHCP client, select this option. Configure the DHCP client settings.
For more information about how to configure the external interface to use a static IP address or DHCP, see Configure an External Interface.
For more information about wireless authentication methods, see About Wireless Security Settings.
To create a wireless bridge and provide additional security, you can add a BOVPN tunnel between your XTM device and the external gateway. You must set the mode to Aggressive Mode in the Phase 1 settings of your BOVPN configuration on both devices.
For information about how to set up a BOVPN tunnel, see About Manual Branch Office VPN Tunnels.
