By default, the access points are set to Bridge Mode. 


NAT mode: use auto 

Clients receive IP addresses in an isolated network.  The clients will 
be able to communicate with each other based on client isolation settings, and may communicate with access points on the wired LAN based on wired LAN isolation settings.
Bridge mode: make clients part of the router 
This setting makes a client become part of the router LAN.
VLAN Tagging
The default setting is disabled.  To configure VLAN Tagging, enable the feature, enter your settings, and click Save.  This option only appears when device is in Bridge Mode.
Custom DNS
The Custom DNS option is only available when the device is in NAT Mode.   This is disabled by default.
Isolate Wireless Clients 
from Wired LAN

This option is enabled by default and only available when the device is in NAT Mode. 

When enabled, wireless clients will not be able to reach any other device connected to the same network of the access point, excluding the gateway, to access the internet.



QoS for 
To prioritize apps such as Zoom or Microsoft® Teams for the SSID, enable this option.
ON - When enabled, this feature prevents wireless clients from communicating to each other within the same SSID. 

OFF - This is the default setting.  When Wireless Client Isolation is disabled, the clients connected to the same SSID and radio band will be able to talk to each other.
Maximum Concurrent Clients 
This setting limits the number of clients that can be connected at the same time.  This is disabled by default.
802.11k - Radio Resource Management This setting helps devices search quickly for nearby access points that are available as roaming targets by creating an optimized list of channels.  When the signal strength of the current access point weakens, your device will scan for target access points from the list.  This is disabled by default.
802.11r - Fast Roaming 
When your devices roam from one access point to another on the same network, 802.11r uses a feature called Fast Basic Service Set Transition to authenticate more quickly.  This setting works with both pre-shared key and 802.1x authentication methods.  This is disabled by default.
Sticky Client Auto Disconnect This helps enhance overall roaming behavior by disconnecting clients with a high retransmission rate, minimizing the "sticky client" effect.  This is disabled by default.
Band Selection 
You can choose to enable one radio for each SSID or use the default Dual Band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) setting.
