Re: Quesion

Per this guide, the answer is yes. The ap would be in bridge mode. You would have to test this out. Doesn't say if it can be a repeater for another vendor ap or not if that is what your trying to accomplish.

See page 92

Re: Quesion

The WAP device can act as a single point-to-point mode access point, point-to-multipoint bridge, and as a repeater. In the point-to-point mode, a single WAP device accepts connections from clients and other devices in the network. In a point-to-multipoint bridge mode, a single WAP device behaves as a common link between many access points. WAP device can also act as a repeater, where it can establish a connection between access points which are far apart from each other. Wireless clients can connect to this repeater. A WDS role system can be compared similar to the role of the repeater.

For the configuration guide please refer to the following link-
