    So looking at their user guide, here's a few things to check: 

    1. It says to use a PoE switch but it also shows a power adapter? I would think one or the other, but not both but so far I haven't seen why their instructions specify PoE if they give you a power adapter? I'm assuming you have power, so moving on. :) 
    2. I assume you joined the management Wi-Fi as described? https://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/WAX214/WAX214_IG_EN.pdf
    3. It looks like you can go to https://192.168.0.100/ (if need be temporarily change your FWG to use 192.168.0.1/24 to make the process easier. They do mention https://www.aplogin.net but that seems to a link to the IP so no cloud service seems to be required for setup. 
    4. Check to see if Firewalla sees the Wi-Fi device and that it isn't quarantined.
    5. Also check to see if the device shows any flows in Firealla (e.g. if it checks for firmware updates).
