Hi Nick Howitt & Other Community members,

Is there any way, Can I use the Internet proxy through WiFi.
We have static IP and ClearOS is Gateway mode.
Previously we are connected only in LAN.

If the WiFi is connected to the LAN, on the same subnet or to a different NIC then it will work automatically. If it is connected to the ClearOS WAN then no, you can't.

The recommended way of connecting WiFi, wither with a WAP or router as a WAP is to disable DHCP in the WAP and give its LAN a static IP on the ClearOS LAN. The connect the ClearOS LAN to the WAP LAN and ignore the WAP/router WAN, if there is one. You can use the same LAN interface as your ClearOS LAN or you could use a separate LAN NIC. That would allow you to configure the WiFi LAN as a HotLAN isolating it from the wired LAN.
