Can the Open-Mesh AP replace a router?


Replaced w/

Our APs are not intended to replace the function of a router. They require connection to a DHCP server, and we highly recommend that be from your local router. Some users have had it work connecting directly to a modem, but that requires their ISP assign modem IPs with DHCP, and you can't always rely on that. Our APs also don't replace the firewall nor does it offer port forwarding or other configuration options you would expect from a router.
