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 SFOS device.
    For your clients to be able to connect to Sophos XG Firewall, they need to be assigned an IP address and a default gateway on the respective SFOS 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.
