FortiWiFi 60E Dual Band Not Working

Reading the overview of the FortiWiFi 60E it says that it's a built in dual band but I can only enable 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz.

Is there a way to enable both or am I missing something?

HI CJ,

 

I had a feeling that while being dual band, the FortiWiFi 60E were a single radio device. Mean you could have either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz but not both at the same time.

 

However the spec sheet (https://www.fortinet.com/content/dam/fortinet/assets/data-sheets/FortiGate_FortiWiFi_60E_Series.pdf) isn't that clear about it.

 

However, a bit more googling find this (https://www.fortinet.com/content/dam/fortinet/assets/data-sheets/Fortinet_Wireless_Product_Matrix.pd...) which does confirm the 60E is a single radio- ie as my feeling in the first sentence suggests.

 

Sorry about that- you are stuck with either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz- not both.

 

Kind Regards,

 

 

Andy.

Not only FWF60E but all FWFs support only one radio.

One of the FWF Platforms that supports Two Radios is FWF50E-2R. It can be operated in 2.4GHz and 5GHz band simultaneously.

Great catch, yes the -2R FWF units were dual radio.  Sadly they didn't sell, and were EOS'd a few quarters ago.  Looking even at the Q4 price list, it has been removed.

Dang that's what I thought.

Thanks
