Netgear r6400 advanced options grayed out

I just updated the firmware on my R6400 router and reset it to factory settings. Once I logged in with my new username and password, I wanted to setup remote management through advanced settings, but most options there are grayed out. 

Anyone have any ideas?

 

Thank you!

   Is that accurate?  R6400 or R6400v2?  Look for "Model" on the product
label.  Firmware version?  Connected to what?

   And then what?  Did the freshly reset R6400[vX] configure itself as a
wireless access point (perhaps for some good reason)?

   "most"?  Which?  Here's a list of features which are disabled in a
router-as-WAP:
