I have a fortiwifi 60d, I form a sofware switch and add a vlan into this software switch, however I notice that when I bind the Wi-Fi into this software switch, it will not use the vlan, how can I turn it into the vlan, thanks.
Anyone know how can I set it to use the vlan for wifi? I open a software switch named lan, and create a vlan in this software switch, then put the wifi into this software switch. The wifi got the IP of software switch only not the vlan.
I have search google before and find the about doc, it seem a external ap with controller I want the vlan assign to local device SSID, I see it in a company, but I can not set it myself. I used to guess it is a problem of tunnel mode or brigh mode but seem not.
Do you have the vlan already configured on switches in the environment? If so then using Bridge mode, you can specify the VLAN. At that point, the port that the AP is plugged into will need to have that tag as an allowed VLAN for the SSID to bridge to the LAN.
I think you may be missing what I said above.... Have you tried configuring the SSID in bridge mode and specifying the VLAN there. As well, also noted above is that with a Software Switch, any IP configuration will override any interfaces' configuration that is added to the Software Switch. I haven't specifically tested your scenario, but i would see that would still apply.
Besides, just wanting to accomplish this, if everything is internal to the FortiWifi, why not just leave the SSID as a separate interface and use policy to direct traffic to the other subnets? You haven't explained why the VLAN interface is actually needed if it's not being tagged on other devices.
