Region : Australia

Model : N/A


I'm considering a purchase of either a TD-W8980 or an Archer D7 or D9.
I'd like to know if it's possible to use the device with ADSL bridge mode (to my Linux server) *and* also to have the wireless running in access point mode, bridging wireless to the ethernet network, but not performing any NAT or the like?

Are you trying to use it as an access point or something else?
Without TD-W8980, how did you access internet?

Hi, I currently have a dedicated ADSL modem (TD-8817), which is in bridged mode to a Linux server, which performs a lot of tasks. I then have a dedicated wireless access point, but all the DHCP, NAT, etc is performed on the Linux server. (ie. The AP is just a dumb wireless-to-ethernet bridge)

I was wondering about upgrading the access point to a newer, faster one - and was wondering if I can reduce the stack of boxes from two to one. But I still need the ADSL bridged to my linux server.

Not quite sure if it will be working...You want to use a wireless modem router to replace the bridage modem and access point, right?
The modem router can be configured as an access point with DHCP off.

I know I can configure the ADSL modem/router as JUST an access point. Or as JUST a bridged modem... but can I get it to do both those things at once?
ie. Be an ADSL bridge to my server *and* be a wireless access point?

thanks for your patience.

There is no conflict between ADSL line and access point but the problem is that I cannot tell if your internet will be working as before.
