App Functions Disabled in AP/bridge mode

Hi, I’m still trying to find my BT Whole Home replace. I read the Orbi app has the following features

 

  • Set up your Orbi system
  • Enable Circle with Disney Smart Parental Controls to manage content and time online
  • Enable and set up guest WiFi
  • Share WiFi credentials with others
  • Change your network name (SSID) and password
  • Check the connection status of your Internet and Orbi satellite
  • View the devices that are connected to your WiFi network
  • Add an Orbi satellite to your existing Orbi system
  • Pause and resume WiFi on the devices that are connected to your network
  • Run Internet speed tests and view your speed history
  • Monitor data usage using the traffic meter feature
  • QR code WiFi sharing
  • Enable/Disable remote access through the app
  • Network Map to display all connected devices on your network

Does anyone have a list of what app feature are not available in bridge mode?

 

I’m mostly interested in whether any or all of these are available.

  • View the devices that are connected to your WiFi network
  • Pause and resume WiFi on the devices that are connected to your network
  • Network Map to display all connected devices on your network

Re: App Functions Disabled in AP/bridge mode

Those features should be available in AP mode.

There is no Bridge mode for the RBK50 series...

Thanks @FURRYe38 this really helps me, sincerely appreciated.

 

By chance, and only after your reply I found https://kb.netgear.com/26765/Disabled-Features-on-the-Router-when-set-to-AP-Mode too but it doesn’t explicitly refer to the app itself.

Hello.

Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong as I have my Orbi set in AP mode but cannot pause WiFi devices.  

 

Thanks

Re: App Functions Disabled in AP/bridge mode

I have an RBR20.  I am in AP mode because I use a fios router downstream to convert MOCA to Ethernet.  I can not use the AP either.  App says plug in my router and turn it on.

Re: App Functions Disabled in AP/bridge mode

 Do you have PC that connects to the LAN ports in back of the Orbi? Set it up using a PC and web browser. Once you get in there, configure AP mode and connect the LAN cable from the main host router to the WAN port of the Orbi router in AP mode.
