What's new in this release

FortiOS 6.2.0 wireless includes the following new features:

  • Uploading and setting up WiFi location maps
  • Monitoring and suppressing phishing SSID
  • Enhancing WiFi QoS enhancement with WiFi Multi-Media (WMM) to Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) marking
  • Extending diagnostics and logs when the FortiAP sends detailed events of client connections (such as association, authentication, DHCP, and DNS) and the FortiGate creates associated logs of these events
  • Uploading WiFi certificates using the FortiOS GUI
  • Using MAC filtering on SSIDs
  • Changing a wireless-controller VAP for an SSID configuration from a global object to a VDOM object

For more information about the FortiOS 6.2.0 wireless features, see the New Features section.

WiFi Cookbook recipes for FortiOS 6.2.0 are available here.

For FortiAP-S and FortiAP-W2 6.2.0, this guide includes the following changes:

  • New FortiAP Configuration mode
  • New security modes (see Configuring security):
    • WPA3-Enterprise
    • WPA3-Simultaneous Authentication of Equals (SAE)
    • WPA3-SAE Transition
    • Opportunistic Wireless Encryption (OWE)

    • SSH is automatically enabled, if Telnet was enabled before the upgrade.
    • HTTPS is automatically enabled, if HTTP was enabled before the upgrade.
  • New diagnostic commands (see FortiAP CLI configuration and diagnostics commands)
    • cw_diag -c atf
    • cw_diag -c ble-scan
    • cw_diag -c fortipresence
    • cw_diag -c k-qos wlan00
    • cw_diag -c vlan-probe-cmd
    • cw_diag -c vlan-probe-rpt
    • cw_diag -c snmp
