Connecting and authorizing the FortiAP

  1. Go to Network > Interfaces and configure a dedicated interface for the FortiAP.
  2. Under Administrative Access, enable PING and CAPWAP, and enable DHCP Server.

    Under Networked Devices, enable Device Detection.

  3. Connect the FortiAP unit to the interface. Then go to WiFi & Switch Controller > Managed FortiAPs. Notice the Status is showing Waiting for Authorization.
  4. When the FortiAP is listed, select and Authorize it.

  5. The FortiAP is now Online. The Status may take a few minutes to update.
  6. Go to WiFi & Switch Controller > FortiAP Profiles and edit the profile.
  7. This example uses a FortiAP-S 221E, so the FAPS221E-default profile applies.

    For each radio, make sure to select your SSID.
