There are 3 modes in which a router can operate:

  • Access Point Mode: When the router is set up as an Access Point (AP), it becomes part of an existing wireless network or creates its own wireless network.
  • Router Mode: The router mode allows for local area networking (LAN) with devices that are connected to it by wires, such as computers, printers, etc. This mode is also known as infrastructure mode.
  • Client Mode: In client mode, a computer is connected to a wireless network and behaves as a wireless client device.

User Mode is the first mode a user has access to after logging into the router. The user mode can be identified by the > prompt following the router name. This mode allows the user to execute only the basic commands, such as those that show the system's status.

The type of internet connection will determine the type of router you need as well as what kind of mode it needs. For instance, if someone has cable internet, they will need a cable modem and a wired router because their connection is not wireless. On the other hand, if someone has DSL or fiber optic internet, they will need to use a wireless router and access point because those connections are wireless.

Below are some steps that will help you change the mode on your router:

Find out what type of router you have.
Check for any instructions on how to change the router’s environment/mode on your device.
Make sure that you follow all instructions carefully and enter new settings accordingly.
Reboot your device and check if there is any improvement in performance.
