  1. Fortigate 60 and WLAN router question

    Does anyone know if the Fortigate 60 (Not the wireless FWF-60) can
    accomodate a Wireless router as in turning off the DHCP on the WLAN
    router and plugging it into a LAN port on the device (i.e. cat 5 from
    WLAN router from Wireless router LAN (not WAN) interface to LAN
    interface on the Fortigate?)

    Thanx in advance

    You disable the DHCP server on wireless/wire router and it becomes a
    wire/wap switch. You plug the wire/wap switch into a LAN port on the FW
    appliance gateway using a static IP on the gateway.

    Here is an example for Linksys. The principles of connection the two are
    the same no matter make or model, when the router becomes a switch, just
    substitute your devices and IP(s) in the example.
