Adding Built in Wireless to AP's VAP

edited March 2022 in Entry Level Firewalls


I have a Soho 250w and have 3 Sonicwave aps. The APs currently are on two SSIDS setup in the access point section of the firewall. I want to use the Built in wireless and have it part of the two existing SSIDs but everytime I go into the settings of wireless it seems like that the VAP is a separate section from the VAP listed in the Access Point section of the firewall.

Can anyone point me to an article on how to get them to work together or have a work around for this? Is it even possible?

Thank you

  • Hello @JohnS,

    Unfortunately, due to separate hardwares, the handoff between the built in wireless and the access point cannot take place. That is the reason why the the VAP for them are separate and cannot be clubbed together.

    You can have one SSID on the built-in wireless and another on the AP but not both the SSIDs on both built-in wireless and AP simultaneously.
