Different AP modes of Linksys Access Points

There are four modes on a Linksys Access Point:

•  Access Point - is the default mode.  It allows wireless devices to connect to its broadcast SSID.

•  Access Point Client- allows this device to act as a wireless client or a wireless receiver.  You can connect a wired computer to the access point to connect to a wireless router or another access point wirelessly.  Therefore, on this AP mode, the access point acts as a receiver of the signal coming from another access point.  For detailed instructions, click here.

NOTE:  The WAP54G will only communicate with another WAP54G when set to Access Point Client mode.

•  Wireless Repeater - will repeat the signal of another access point or wireless router.

NOTE:  The WAP54G will only communicate with another WAP54G or WRT54G Linksys router when set to Wireless Repeater mode.

•  Wireless Bridge - will turn the access point into a wireless bridge.  It will link a wireless network to a wired network allowing you to bridge two networks with different infrastructures.  For detailed instructions, click here.

NOTE:  The WAP54G will only communicate with another WAP54G when set to Wireless Bridge mode.
