Model: Archer C80
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.5.7 Build 210308 Rel.60033n(4555)

Hello everyone,
I am trying to add the Archer C80 to my existing network in order to extend my network's coverage while also having a mac filter on the wifi.

I am also connecting another computer to the C80 with an ethernet cable.

 

The problem I am running into is when I set the router's operation mode to AP mode, I can not turn the access control to whitelist mode.

 

When I navigate to the menu above when the router is in Access Point Mode, there is only the blacklist option.

Is this really intended behavior and if so why?

Could the firmware upgrade to 1.5.7 have broken this?

Thanks.

According to this FAQ the Access Control feature won't be supported, when the device is switched to AP mode.

@terziyski Thanks for clearing this up, One option being enabled threw me off.
