I've looked for the answer to this question, but cannot find it.
Does the Aircube support a station mode like the AirGateway did?
If not, can anyone recommend an alternative product to use in a situation where the AirGateway would have been used in station mode? In this case, I have a wired printer that I want to connect to my network, but it nowhere near a wired connection. It is within range of a Unifi AP and could have easily been connected using an AirGateway (which unfortunately has been discontinued).

Advocate99, Did you ever find an answer to your question?
I am also looking to place a hardwired Ethernet jack in a location where running CAT6 cable would be impractical. I have a UniFi AC Mesh Pro serving WiFi to the location.
In the past, I have used the airGatewayLR in client mode (station mode?), but those are no longer available.
I am wondering whether any of the other UniFi AC AP's can be configured in client mode in the same way as the airGatewayLR? I was particularly looking at the UniFi AC Mesh (~$99), but I am flexible.

UBNT's WISP products support that mode, but they're overkill for this purpose.
The last time that I checked, TP-Link's TL-WR802N was a small device that runs on USB power that can be configured in station mode.

Why not put the "station" in Repeater mode, uplink from 2.4 or 5GHz and just disable the other wireless?
Then you have a 4-port switch. I do this in my upstairs living room to wire TV, reciever and such.

The AirCube AC will allow one of the radios to be in "station" mode but NOT AirMax still should do what your looking for
iSP model does not support it
