Using my Sonicwall with a access points

We are using a Sonicwall NSA2400.  With X0 is my LAN, and X1 is my WAN.  I'd like to set up using X2 just as access point so guests can login with a laptop and get right out just to the web.  I'm not hundred percent sure how to set up using X2 and a access point (it's a Linksys, I'll just set it up as a access point in instead of a router).

Thank you.

This works great with sonicwall. I have done the same thing.

I also used ubiquiti access points for a complete guest portal.


Create a vlan on network switch


assign x2 to vlan


Assign switch ports to vlan


Setup DHCP DHCP daemon to listen on X2


Connect APs to switch ports


You will also need to create wan to lan rules for x2
