I am not seeing the WSN add-in options in MAX. I have reinstalled and repaired, the WSNProvider help file was not installed, but the shortcuts are there. The Network Browser works and I am able to see the Gateway in Project Explorer. It seems all of the configuration is done in MAX?
Is there another way of installing drivers into MAX? Also, is there any documentation on the 9792 console commands and .ini files for setting up?
Your best resource is probably the NI 9792 WSN Real-Time Gateway User Guide and Specifications. I'm not finding any specific ini settings since normal circumstances don't typically require editing the ini file.

The WSN Nodes tab is at the bottom of your MAX window, as shown below. It should appear when you have the WSN gateway selected under Remote Systems.
Are you not seeing it there?
I am facing the same problem. When I select the NI-WSN 9791 in MAX, I can find the "WSN node" tab. But, when I select the WSN 9792 gateway on the tree, there is no "WSN node" tab. What should I do?
If you are using the NI WSN 9792 Gateway, you can reach the WSN Node configuration by doing the following:
1. Expand the 9792
2. Expand the Devices and Interfaces Tab under the 9792
3. You should find an item under Devices and Interfaces titled 'WSN'. Clicking on this will take you to the same configuration window.
The reason that it's in a different place for the WSN 9792 is because the 9792 has a real-time controller on it, and so wsn nodes will show up as 'Devices/Interfaces' to the real-time controller. The 9791 on the other hand, is simply a router, and hence has a tab for WSN nodes. I hope this sheds some clarity on the difference.
I'm afraid the issue does deeper than this. If the software is not correctly installed on the programmable gateway, then the WSN does not appear under devices and interfaces. The WSN software was listed as installed on the target. I finagled with the software installation and somehow got the WSN to appear as a device, but I do not remember exactly how I did this.
To recreate the problem, I suggest formatting the target and starting with a blank installation.
