Need help on "bridge mode/access point" configuration

A music server I just purchased requires a wired connection to my LAN. Also, the user manual requires the following on the LAN: "Wireless Access Point or a Wireless router set to a "bridge mode/access point" configuration." So, when I had set up my 2-node ORBI just using the quick-start default settings, did it automatically configure it in either bridge mode or access point configuration?  Or do I need to go into any admin menus and manually set it?  If so, does making such a change affect any of the normal LAN connectivity for all the other typical computer and TV-type devices in my home?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Re: Need help on "bridge mode/access point" configuration

The default initial setup will be for Router Mode. You'll need to go into Advanced tab/Advanced settings/Router/AP mode. There you will see two modes, select AP mode. The system will reboot.

 


My Setup (Cable 900Mbps/50Mbps)>CAX80>RBK853 v3.1.15.32(Router Mode)
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200, Orbi CBK40, RBK50, R7800, R7960P,
