Hi everyone, Could you help me, please?

My client has a wireless network with Ubiquiti Uniffi, but he needs more reach, And I think of de possibility configure an old AP7632 as a repeater, Is it possible? We need a repeater in 5Ghz, not 2.4Ghz, and If is possible, how to configure this option?

Thanks for your help

Hi Mario,

You can use the Client Bridge function on the AP7632, we don't call it a repeater. So basically, you configure either 2.4GHz or 5GHz interface as Client Bridge which will allow the 7632 to connect to any third party AP as a client, and the other remaining interface can be used to broadcast an SSID to serve wireless clients. You can also connect wired client with 7632, directly or via switch. See the following article on how to configure it.
