Reactivating Wireless Connections

When you make changes to the wireless settings on the security device, you must update the device with your changes before the new settings take effect.

Note: When using an authentication server for wireless authentication, if you enable 802.1X support on that server, you must also reactive the WLAN subsystem before the change can take effect.

Additionally, the device must reactivate its WLAN subsystem to use the new settings. NSM automatically reactivates the WLAN subsystem within the NetScreen-5GT Wireless security device during the device update process.

The reactivation process takes several seconds (approximately 10 seconds) to complete. During reactivation of the WLAN subsystem, the device severs all wireless connections and clears all wireless sessions from the session table. Previously connected wireless clients must reconnect to reestablish their disrupted sessions.
