Turning DIR-890L to Acess Point
« on: March 01, 2020, 01:54:30 PM »

Subject already explains it, but i want to turn my existing 890L to AP.

In the Settings- internet "Device Mode: AP MODE"

Do i have to change it to Static IP aswell? And if i change it to AP Mode, do i have to worry about anything else? DHCP etc.?

If it gives an option to input a static IP then you can
When you change to AP mode, all DCHP and router services will be disabled.
