Use Zywall only as AP controller

We are getting a new firewall, I want to keep our Zywall and use it as a controller for our ~15 AP points`only. Will the zywall connect to the wireless points if I give it a new IP-address where it is no longer the gateway in the wifi-management network?

    Hi there,

     

    If Zywall get a new IP-address, it still can connect to the access points.

    You can go to Configuration >> Network >> Interface >> Ethernet/ VLAN


    Click Advanced >> Add/ Edit >> Type the Zywall new IP at First IP Adress >> Click OK



    Through the IP setting, it can fix the AP Controller.
