Fortigate 110C Use Wan2 Instead of Internal

I've recently acquired a Fortinet Fortigate  110C that I'd like to use at home.  The trouble is that the device comes with an Internal Switch rated at 100 Mbps and my current ISP provides me with 200 Mbps of download speed.  The device has 2 WAN ports and both are gigabit.

Is it possible for me to use Wan1 for my ISP connection and Wan2 for my internal network in place of the internal switch?  If so, what do I need to do configuration wise to accomplish this?

All ports of a FortiGate can be used for whatever you want, no matter what the name of the port is ... so just plug in your home network in Wan2 and configure the rules on that port for whatever you need for your internal network ...

Thanks for the info.  I thought it was more complicated for some reason but I simply had to put the proper policies in place and the traffic started working.
