Before you can assign an SSID to a WatchGuard AP device, you must add the SSID to the Gateway Wireless Controller. You can also enable VLAN tagging on each SSID. If you enable VLAN tagging, the SSID uses the VLAN ID you specify to connect to a VLAN that is configured on the network between your AP device and XTM device.
For more information about when and how to use VLAN tagging with your AP device, see Configure VLANs for WatchGuard AP Devices.
To add an SSID for your AP devices:
If you enable VLAN tagging and try to configure an SSID to use a VLAN ID that is not configured on the XTM device, a warning message appears with the information that the VLAN ID you configured in the SSID settings does not exist on the XTM device. Make sure you configure a tagged VLAN for this SSID. In most network configurations, you create the tagged VLAN for each SSID on the XTM device, and one untagged VLAN for management connections to the AP device.
When you add an SSID, you can assign the SSID to one or more AP device radios. For AP200 devices, which have two radios, you select each radio separately.
To assign an SSID to an AP device radio:
In the Access Points with this SSID list, select the check boxes next to each AP device radio that you want to use this SSID.
You can also assign SSIDs to an AP device radio when you edit the AP device radio settings. For more information, see Configure AP Device Radio Settings.
To configure the wireless security settings for the SSID:
