IAP to Replace Home Router?

Hi! I got ahold of a Aruba IAP second hand. I have a TP-Link switch in my house that's cable of VLAN tagging, and has about five devies wired up to it.


Can the IAP replace a home router? 


I would like to keep the wireles clients and wired clients on one VLAN, and my ISP's external IP on another VLAN and have the IAP replace a Time Capsule router.

Great! I'm not going crazy. 


How can I make the IAP NAT the traffic on the wired side of the switch?
