Wireless Access Point Types

WatchGuard offers two types of wireless devices that you can use separately or together to add secure wireless access points to your network: a WatchGuard XTM wireless device and a WatchGuard Access Point device.

A WatchGuard XTM wireless device

A WatchGuard Access Point device

The configuration options and setup procedures for these two types of access point devices are different.

WatchGuard XTM wireless device

You can enable up to three wireless access points on a WatchGuard XTM wireless device. The settings to configure a WatchGuard XTM wireless device are in the Network > Wireless menu.

For more information, see About Firebox and XTM Wireless Device Configuration.

WatchGuard Access Point (AP) device

You can connect multiple WatchGuard AP devices to the trusted or optional network of an XTM device, and manage them from any wired or wireless XTM device. You configure the Gateway Access Controller on your XTM device to manage the WatchGuard AP devices.

The settings to configure WatchGuard AP devices are in the Network > Gateway Wireless Controller menu.
