    Hi @mehmetkacar ,

    Certainly, you can create an offline WiFi network using the APs NWA1123-AC-PRO. However, it's important to note that these APs do not have the DHCP server feature, which means you'll need to set up a DHCP server separately to assign IP addresses to devices on your network.

    To create the offline WiFi network, disconnect the router from the internet, and adhere to the following structure for your configuration:

    Router (with DHCP server) — Switch — 5 units of APs (Zyxel NWA1123-AC-PRO)

    Within this setup, the router will retain its role as a DHCP server, effectively managing local IP assignments. However, it's important to note that external connectivity will not be available as part of this arrangement.
