SonicWALL NSA 220W - All ports including WLAN on same subnet?

Is there a way to set up a SonicWALL NSA 220W to have the wireless and all of the LAN ports on the same subnet? I can set X0 and X2-X6 to be in the LAN (Portshield group bound to X0) but the WLAN will be on subnet by itself. If I un-assign X2-X6 from Portshield group bound to X0 I can put the WLAN into L2 bridge mode, but cannot have X2-X6 on the LAN.

I have a small install where I want everything on the same subnet and not have to get a switch just for 1 more computer.

Hopefully this can be done and I'm just overlooking something simple.

Already saw that. Once you do that, the X2-X6 ports cannot be assigned to the LAN.

Why do you want to put all the interfaces in a portshield group? What are you trying to achieve?

Ok, buy why? Putting the WLAN on a different subnet won't create any problems, and will allow you to put all the rest in a portshield group if that is what you want to do.

Aren't you going to create separate rules for wireless anyway?

I want all of the interfaces on the same subnet. Wireless included. It's a simple network, there is no need to have multiple subnets just for the sake of having multiple subnets. I'd put in a Linksys SOHO router if I could, but I need site-to-site VPN. You don't know what problems it will cause or not cause.

So....again....is it possible? If so, what am I overlooking?

I believe the only way you will achieve what you want is not to use portshield groups.

Rather configure each port separately.
