Can this device be used just as an access point only, without using it as a router?

Can this device be used as an access point only... without using its router features (such as DHCP server, NAT, etc)?

If it can be used only as an access point, can the guest network feature be enabled? (I believe guest network features usually require some sort of VLAN partioning)

  • Yes it can, the are 3 mondes of configuring the router:
    - DHCP + NAT
    - DHCP Ony
    - Off (Bridge mode)

    That third option is what you are looking for. You can use guest mode in combination with bridge mode I believe, though I have not tried it myself.
