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.

Use the following to set this up as requested.

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?

Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

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.
