I am having problems with the Sonicwall tz170. The wireless computers show limited or no connectivity. The system has very good strength and the firmware is up to date for the sonicwall. The log in the sonicwall states the following errors in the log:
"Packet dropped by wlan vpn traversal check"
"TCP connection dropped"
"Port only configured to receive IPSEC ONLY. Drop packet received clear"

Any help would be greatly appreciated...thank you!

By the log it seems your only allowing IPSEC traffic over the WLAN?

Do your users have to use a some kind of VPN client for you wlan?

Hi thank you for your response. No, they do not need to log into a vpn to use the wireless. The wireless is to be used for the intranet. There is a separate vpn login when they are off-premises. Would there be anyway to allow access to the intranet?

You need to turn off "WiFISec enforcement", allowing clients not using Sonicwall's Global VPN client to access the WLAN.

Depending on your firmware version, you should find the checkbox either on the Wireless -> Advanced page OR under Network -> Zones -> WLAN -> configure icon(opens new window) -> Wireless tab
