Wireless bridge or repeater


Sorry if this has been asked, but are either of the AP6 or AP6-Pro able to operate as a wireless bridge between two APs? I have a scenario where I may only be able to get a wired connection to one spot but will want an AP in another spot further up. Can the AP6 work as a repeater in that way?


@Adam Great question! Yes! Both AP6 and AP6-Pro will form a mesh if they cannot obtain an uplink via their Ethernet port.

Okay great, thank you!

That is awesome! While not ideal, there seem to always be weird situations where this becomes necessary.

Can they do a wired downlink from the meshed AP?

Was thinking somewhere you can’t run a cable for backhaul, or you have a device with no wireless (Or even an old/lowend wireless nic)

@dragon2611 Yes, it will bridge the wired devices beyond it to the uplink’s network.


Make sure you test this to the best of you ability, it can be a pain to maintain and cause issues for your clients.
If you do it; Make a side note / statement to the client that it can work, but will not be as stable as a Cable connection. So they can experience failures or disconnects.

oh i was actually wondering aobut this thanks for anwering this one thing i was thinking of

@Alta-Jeff supports VLANs? the wired devices can be an L2 switch that can be used to extend networks? wondering if they connect using a dedicated 5GHz channel, could you please share any URL/Documentation describing this feature.

@nbari Yes, the meshed AP VLAN configuration works exactly the same as if it was wired. There is no difference in functionality.
