i am using a manual IP for AP  but still the problem is getting remained 

Please help me where do i missd or please let me know if there any problem in device (AP) 


"when its down i cant see the device in the inventory list either" -- that should clearly tell you the problem is with the AP

Hello Roshanzak,


So far have you tried to restart the switch which connects the firewall to the AP.


Also, can you test by creating another subnet on the FortiGate interface and connecting the AP directly to confirm if this is not an issue with the switch?


Let us know if this helps.
