Nanobeam 5AC Gen 2 Router setup

So, I am trying to program this device to act as a router for one of our clients. I have looked and compared settings to other radios we have connected using the same settings, and no matter how I set it up, I loose access to the radio after changing it to router mode. 

 

What I have done:

I removed LAN0 and LAN1 from Bridge1, ad kept just the WLAN0 on the Bridge0, leaving LAN0 and LAN1 not on a bridge. I then added a LAN Network to just LAN0 and applied all of my settings. 

 

NAT is on, disabled management is not on the WAN or the LAN (for testing purposes). 

 

Any ideas?

What firmware do you have in it?  Must be at least 8.5.8, as the unit has 2 LAN ports in it, and any firmware earlier than 8.5.8 will just lock up on you.

Can you post your network configuration page?

For the first question, I always update the firmware before programming any equipment. This one was on the latest, .12. 

 

The second question, my boss apparently figured out the issue while I was out sick today, so I'm not exactly sure of what he did yet to get passed this issue.

Well the problem was, you can't access wlan0 if its not connected to an ap Man Indifferent

 

That would be why I was losing connection! Sure made me feel dumb.

It happens to the best of us, and also to me.
