How to switch from bridge mode to Router Mode ?

Hi guys, i have a setup of 2 AP, group together in mesh to form 1 active network in one site.  There is a Firewall/Router at the edge, doing Nat and acting as dhcp server on the Lan.  The AP have been configured in bridge mode when initializing.   Now, we need to take one of the two AP and bring it elsewhere and acting as the router connected direct to an internet cable modem.   The orgnisation is the same.  How can i switch the mode of this AP ? the only options i see on the device are modifying lan configuration (automatic vs static IP) or delete from inventory.  thanks if you have any tips.

If you are moving the AP to a different location, you should remove it from the site in the app, and create a new site for the new location.  When you create the new site, you will have the choice to say the AP can be the router for that new site.

Hope that helps!
