Next Steps for Separate Zone Networks
When you created a wireless network with the option Separate Zone, a new corresponding virtual hardware interface will be created automatically, e.g., wlnet1. To be able to use the wireless network, some further manual configuration steps are required. Proceed as follows:
1. Enable DHCP for the wireless clients on the respective Sophos XG Firewall device.
* For your clients to be able to connect to Sophos Firewall OS, they need to be assigned an IP address and a default gateway on the respective Sophos XG Firewall device. Therefore, on the Configure > Network > DHCP page, set up a DHCP server for the interface.
2. Create a Network Policy on the Policies page to provide Internet access to the wireless clients.
