Use non-fortinet AP with Fortigate 60E

  • 1.  Use non-fortinet AP with Fortigate 60E

    Posted 07-25-2018 07:38
    Hi 

    I need some clarification and insight on two potential scenario's here.

    1) Can I use a D-LINK Access point as an AP for a Fortigate 60E and if yes, how?

    2) Is there Wi-Fi capabilities (without the need for an AP) built into the Fortigate 60E?

    Any information on this would be appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Dan.

    Hi Dan, 

    Find below my comments.

    1) Can I use a D-LINK Access point as an AP for a Fortigate 60E and if yes, how?
    You can us a D Link AP as if you were connecting any other network device to your network (e.g. a switch), but you definitely can not manage (configure) a D Link AP with the FGT 60E.

    2) Is there Wi-Fi capabilities (without the need for an AP) built into the Fortigate 60E?
    The built-in wifi capabilities of any FortiGate are related to WiFi controller features, in which the FortiGate becomes a wireless controller for Fortinet APs (not 3rd party APs). 
    There are special models of FortiGate with a built-in AP, but these are the FortiWiFi appliances.
