RX120 AX12 - Multi-gig port while in AP mode?

Hi all,

I am using my AX12 router in AP Mode, is there a way I can use the multi-gig port to get it to connect to my LAN? As it does not seem to pick up a IP when I plug in the cable to the multi-gig port and only works with the normal 1Gb ports.

 

thanks

I think I have found a soloution, I reset the AX12 back to 'Router' mode and setup the internet connection to use the 5G Port. Applied the settings, checked the internet was working and then changed the router back to 'AP mode'. 

 

It is now using the 5G ethernet port to connect to my router.

I use it with my Pfsense router that I built, to be honest is overkill for a home setup.
