I have a WAP setup in my garden and want to prevent that the ethetnet cable(When removen from the WAP can be used to plug into another device to acces my network.

How can this be done?

I have a GS1915-24EP switch installed.

    Hi @Jeggers ,

    May I know whether your GS1915-24EP switch in standalone mode or Nebula mode? So I can check and provide you the suitable solution for the mode you are using. By the way, what are the current VLANs used in your network?

    On the other hand, you can refer to establishing the Smart mesh (as the wireless connection mechanism to AP connects to another AP) for your network, so there is no Ethernet cable in your garden.
