I recently changed the Network Mode on my Beryl AX (MT3000) from Router to Access Point Mode, but then found I could not access the Beryl using the GLiNET App. Is this by design? To be fair there is a message about accessing the Beryl using the IP Address assigned by the Main Router.
However this seems a bit difficult if you’re travelling and you just want to extend an existing network (that allows it), but then you cannot access the Router of that existing network. In this case how do you access the Beryl from the GLiNET App (if you do not know the IP Address of it?)
Fair question; it’s actually for when we go to my wife’s parents place. They have an older router with Wireless N or AC, so I wanted to plug it into the LAN port and then we can connect our devices to the Travel Router when we visit my in-laws. Hopefully that makes sense.
Thank you, I can look into that down the track, but for now I guess this question was more about whether the GLiNET App could be used in AP mode, which yuxin.zou has noted it can not be and provided an alternative.
If you set up the GL.iNet router as a LAN-only access point, then you can use the GL.iNet App to manage the router. Just add it via Initialized Devices in the app and enter the router’s LAN IP address.
It has been quite some time (9 months) since my original post requesting this functionality and I was REALLY REALLY hoping to see this “enable AP Mode in the App”, rather than having to go through the Webadmin each time.
I’d like to give the Router to my wife for Travel and have her use it via the App, as an App, at her parents place.
