Dear Community,

Is there any trick in order to use my "unnecessary" SCR 50AXE unit as an AP (only) in my system?

Currently I have a GS1920-24HPV2 switch and 4 Zyxel APs already. I'd like to extend the WiFi further…

Thanks in advance!

    There is no AP only feature on SCR 50AXE.

    Hi @neukrisz

    The SCR 50AXE model will not include the MESH feature. For extending WiFi service, an Ethernet connection will still be required.

    However, we have a plan to add mesh system in future products.
    If you have any further inquiries or suggestions, please feel free to let us know.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Without MESH can we use that as standalone AP only? (so has it AP mode only?)

    Thanks in advance!

    You could use as an AP, make sure DHCP is off and give the LAN interface a suitable free static IP, and Bingo you have an AP. Devices that join the Wi-Fi will get an IP address from your LANS DHCP server.
