AP15 act as a DHCP server

    Hello. Can an AP 15 act as a DHCP server when configured in Router Mode? What I'm trying to ask is the following: Have a customer who has no firewall or DHCP server. If I plug in the cable from the ISP provider in a switch, configures my first AP in Router Mode connected to this switch. Will I get an DHCP adress from the ports in this switch, when i connect other devices to the switch? Was this understandable?

    Hi, Is your question about whether the Instant On AP can act as a DHCP server? If so, Yes!

    Instant On APs now have a router mode where the AP can be directly plugged into the modem. The AP comes with a built-in DHCP server, NAT and firewall. The AP will then provide DHCP addresses to other APs and clients in the network. If you need to connect a switch to the AP, you can use the AP11D which has wired ports. 

    Hope that answers your question
