Wireless Network Manager 3.5 Administration Guide

NAT Mode

Wireless Network Manager provides SonicWave NAT mode in addition to the previous bridge mode.

NAT mode is usually used on single access point deployment. With NAT mode, the user does not need to set up a special DHCP server for the client. SonicWave sets up a DHCP server for each VAP automatically

Mesh network is not supported for devices configured to use NAT mode.

4G/LTE mode is only supported on NAT mode.
