Question

How do I change an access point from Gateway Mode to Repeater Mode?

Environment

  • Open Mesh Access Points

Answer

The access point will act as a gateway AP if it has a hardwired connection to the LAN. If it does not, then it will attempt to connect wirelessly to a different gateway AP in the same CloudTrax network. Once the access point makes this connection, it is in repeater mode.

For best performance, we recommend that the APs have a hardwired connection and act as gateway APs whenever possible.
