Wi-Fi connections to a Sonic WALL TZ 180 Wi-Fi device give the computer a public IP address & no access to internal network resources

Wi-Fi connections to a Sonic WALL TZ 180 Wi-Fi device give the computer a public IP address & no access to internal network resources.

Currently when any laptops connect to the Sonic WALL TZ 180 Wi-Fi device they are given an IP address on the public internet. This public IP address is within the range of static IP addresses that the company has been assigned by our company's ISP, AT&T.

If I install the Sonic WALL TZ 180 Wi-Fi device VPN client, will this enable the laptops to be able to establish a VPN connection to my company’s internal network resources?

I need the laptops to be able to access all internal network resources, such as the file shares, Exchange server, and other network resources.

The routing information has already been configured by a previous IT administrator.

I would prefer to leave all of the routing settings and tables alone without trying to add new routes for the Sonic WALL TZ 180 Wi-Fi device’s Wi-Fi networking clients.

The SonicWALL VPN client can be downloaded from this website:

So, if I install the Sonic WALL TZ 180 Wi-Fi device VPN client, will this enable the laptops to be able to establish a VPN connection to my company’s internal network resources?
