Legacy Open Mesh: How Do I Change an Access Point From Gateway Mode to Repeater Mode?



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


  • Datto Access Points


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

We recommend for the best performance that the APs have a hardwired connection and acting as gateway APs whenever possible.
