I have a Sonicwall NSA240 with 8 SonicPoints.

The WLAN works fine with with just one WLAN zone and one Sonicwall Provisoning Profile applied to the Sonicpoints.
 
I have created another wireless Zone called Corporate, a Subinterface for Corporate, a VAP for Corporate and VAP Group with just Corporate in it.

I have assigned one of my Sonicpoints to use the VAP Group, it broadcasts the SSID and clients connect and authenticate with no problems.

Unfortunately, no traffic flows. The client does not get an IP address for that  subinterface and even when I give it a manual IP address still nothing flows.

I have allowed all traffic in Firewall Access Rules.

What am I missing?

Any help wouldbe greatly appreicated.

Is it directly connected? Or via a switch?

VAPs use VLAN IDs, so if you use a switch you need to set up VLAN trunking.

There's an Active config on the TZ600 with VAPs and an X-Series switch on LiveDemo.


View example configurations and the SonicWALL webui and features on http://livedemo.sonicwall.com or http://ngfw-demo.com

Multiply the effectiveness of your APT Sandbox, stop unknown and zero-day attacks at the gateway. See a demo on http://apt-demo.com or http://atp.demo.com

Absolutely right. i believed it was an umanaged layer 2 switch but I tested a Sonicpoint connected straight to the Sonicwall and it all worked.
