Use the Router as a WiFi Access Point
You can set up the router to function as a WiFi access point (AP) on the same local network as another router. When
the router functions as a WiFi AP, many router-related features are disabled.
If you want to change the router’s function, use a wired connection to avoid being disconnected
when the new function takes effect.
