Quick walk through

I have 2 instant access points, i would like to have the second one mesh up but not re-broadcast the ssid, i want to use it as a bridge and use its ethernet ports (its a 205H) to connect a hardlined machine.

could someone give me a quick walk through?

Re: Quick walk through

Maybe this might work if you create different zones and only send out the ssid in one zone and use the mesh in instant. But I have not yet build this setup

Re: Quick walk through

You will need to broadcast at least one SSID on a Instant Mesh AP, as the AP will consider itself unconfigured as it sees no SSID configured and wipe the config.
