What is the difference between the Router and Access Point mode?

1. Router mode (by default)

Connects multiple devices to the Internet and provides network access. It is the default mode for most home networks, creating a private local network.

2.Access Point (Bridge) mode

Extends existing network coverage or creates a new Wi-Fi hotspot, serving as a bridge between wireless devices and the main router.


When selecting Access Point (Bridge) mode, since a new IP address may be obtained, please also clear the cookies of the GUI web page. And all WAN-related settings will be removed as well.
