A WNDAP360 can be in Standalone mode , or it can be managed by a Wireless Controller. 

If you want to change the type ( Managed to Standalone mode ) you need to flash the device firmware. Performing a Factory Reset ( Holding down Reset Button ) just resets the WebGui Login password.

 Firmware upgrade sequence for WNDAP360 from 2.x:
  V2.1.11 -> V2.1.12 -> V3.5.20.0 – Correct sequence.

Download the Firmwares from here :

See – View Previous Versions

Once Download . UnZip the .tar files !

Login to the webportal of the managed WNDAP360 and upload the first  V2.1.11 Firmware (.tar )  ( I used Chrome ) 

What you will see in the console serial cable connection , is the device restart straight away then wait on the below , Leave the webbrowser open

You should then see it formating the file system and rebooting again

Once ready you can go upload V2.1.12 ( takes a while as it has to encrypt the filesystem ) 

Then V3.5.20.0 and whatever’s the latest!

On the Fortigate , Create a new Interface and assign it to the Uplink of your internet or DMZ with a Vlan ID and Enable DHCP

Create a policy to allow outbound

 

On the Switch ( ours GS752TP ) that the access points plug into,  Tag the ports with the Vlan ID you created above, where your access points plug into as all as the port for the Uplink from the Switch to the Router

On your access points  ( Ours WNDAP360 ) create a new SSID and Tag these to the new VLAN ID
