R7800 - Change Device Name in AP Mode

I've already contacted support about this issue, but they were not helpfull at all.

 

I have put my R7800 in AP mode, but now the 'Device Name' menu under Advanced->Setup is grayed out. Support told me to change it back to router mode, change name, and then back to AP mode. Which I think is a bug in the firmware. Support didn't agree Smiley Happy 

 

What do you guys think?

 

 

Using firmware version V1.0.2.12

Model: R7800|Nighthawk X4S AC2600 Wifi Router

From my perspective it's a bug, and support gave you a workaround.

 

Support likely has been told that the behavior is "as designed" - at least that explains their response.  If so I think it's a silly restriction.
