Switch and access point in a Slate AX

I want to use my Slate AX to use as WiFi access point for my home, it will be connected to my ISP router.

In addition, I also would like to use the two free ports as LAN switching for other devices.

Would it be possible that such configuration could work?

Thank you very much!! :grinning::grinning:

if I understand you correctly, it is possible, but most of the manipulations for this will need to be done in the LUCI (openwrt) interface.

Thank you very much for your answer, English it’s not my language… :sweat_smile:

I think that you have understood right: I want to use simultaneously the Slate AX as a WiFi access point (One port connected to my ISP router) and as a switch (With the other two free remaining ports)…

Best regards!! :smiley::smiley:

My native language is also not English :wink:
I think this menu in the interface will help to use lan ports as a switch. You may also need to set up a firewall, depending on your scenario.

Thank you very much for the picture!! :smiley::smiley: I’ll check it when I arrive at this point, I’m still thinking about how to configure my LAN.
Regarding the firewall, for such task I trust in Sophos, the free home edition. I will run it as a VM on a mini pc with Proxmox.

Best regards!! :smiley::smiley:

You should not have to change anything in LUCI.

Just use the Access Point mode in More Settings - Network mode. All LAN ports should be usable as default.


Hello, great news!! With this two solutions my doubt is resolved so I mark the thread as solved.

Thank you very much @agent_smith and @limbot for your help!! :grinning::grinning:
