Yes, when the AP is set to repeater mode, the bridge mode is disabled by default.

To enable bridging, select the option "Enable Wireless Bridging" when you set up a repeater AP.

CONFIGURATION > Wireless > AP Management > Mgnt. AP List > Edit


The topology of wireless bridge LAN:

Local Network with NXC<->LAN<-> (RootAP) <Wi-Fi> (RepeaterAP) <->LAN<->Other LAN Device

There are the following AP model support the wireless bridge mode, the rest of the AP doesn’t support it.

WAC6103D-I, WAC6502D-S, WAC6503D-S, WAC6502D-E, and WAC6553D-E
