Hi Ashok.


We need more information on this problem, such as:

  • What is the Fortigate/FortiWifi model and firmware installed?
  • Are you using a 3rd party wifi AP?
  • If a FortiAP device is involved - what model is it and is it directly connected to the Fortigate?
  • Is the wifi connection bridged with the internal network (i.e. on same subnet)
  • Does problem effect wired connected computers?
  • Do you have any web/url filtering enabled?
  • Does the problem happen during certain times of the day?
  • Is the Fortigate running the DHCP server for the wifi or is there a server involved?[/ul]

    What troubleshooting have you performed so far?

  • If a FortiAP or 3rd party AP is involved -- have you confirmed the physical connection is good? Have you run ping tests to the AP's IP address?
  • Confirmed there is no other possible rogue dhcp server on the network?
  • If IP addresses are DHCP assigned-- confirm the DHCP lease pool is not full?
  • Check the Fortigate event logs?[/ul]
