EX6120 as Access Point: DHCP server and WiFi channel select?

Hi,

 

I'd like to buy an EX6120, but need to check a copule of things before I do.

 

When configured as an access point, can it act as a DHCP server for devices that connect to its WiFi?

 

When configured as an access point, can I change the WiFi channel it uses on each band?

 

 

Thank you.

Hi @MarkLu,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

1. No, the main router will be the DHCP server.

2. Yes, the wireless channel can be changed when configured as an access point.

I can't buy the unit because I need one which includes a DHCP server - it's a device (live sound mixer) that I'll be plugging in to the wired Ethernet port rather than a network. Thank you for your help, and please feel free to close this issue.
