SonicWALL TZ 170 + Cisco Aironet 1141N WAP
Posted on 2011-10-18
I have a SonicWALL TZ 170 firewall with the latest firmware installed (SonicOS standard). I also have a new Cisco Aironet 1141N autonomous wireless access point. Basically what I'm trying to do is connect the 1141 through the TZ 170 to provide wireless capability for several devices.
In the experience of our EE members, is it worth the time to try and get these two devices to work together? I know that the TZ 170 does not support VLANS, nor do I have a managed swicth for this, but I also know that the 1141 does not have to have specific VLANs associated with it during basic setup (optional setting). Would this configuration then be as simple as pluggin the 1141 into the TZ 170's switch and passing DHCP from the TZ to the 1141?
Thanks for any insight or known caveats with this setup.
