Configure TZ 370W as an Access Point
SnoopyDoggy Newbie ✭
I apologize if this question has been asked before.
I have a TZ 370W catching dust and I decided i want to add it to my home network as a Access Point.
I'm new to Sonicwall so I wasn't able to configure this device to work as an AP.
I have a working network with firewall/router/AP etc.
I have a network cable ready to plug it in this device so i can expand my wireless coverage
Yes i know its overkill but this is what i want to do for now.
I need direction step by step if possible on how to configure this device just for an internet access point.
Thank you in advance

I dont think she works for Sonicwall anymore.
Anyways, Sonicwall W model firewalls cannot be turned into 'just an AP' AFAIK. It's not like a home device (netgear, linksys, etc.) that is based on OpenWRT that has the capabilities to do that. I doubt Sonicwall ever considered anyone would want to do this, and thus did not provide the functionality.
Thanks @TKWITS .. i'll keep playing with it.. maybe there is a way.
There MIGHT be a way to do it using L2 bridging to the W0 interface but I'm gonna doubt it's worth bothering trying.
It's possible by doing the following:
I hope that helps.
@jmathews Is this an supported configuration?
Yes, this would be an unsupported configuration.
