Need airRouter to connect to another network

I work for a small ISP and we currently have a wireless radio in a small downtown section providing a pay to use WiFi network. The radio is connected to a Unifi server so I can add another SSID specificly for this client. We are a month away from building fiber optic through this section of downtown but the client needs I had wire connection by next week or I will lose him to a competitor. I am limited to using only the airRouter HPs we have in stock. Is there a way I can connect a airRouter HP to the current wireless network being broadcasted from the Unifi radio and be able to access the network through the LAN ports?

Re: Need airRouter to connect to another network

I can't imagine why you're so limited. But I think you're

in luck -- sort of.

 

AirRouter uses AirOS, so it can be configured as a client.

Of course it has the limitation of a SISO radio--similar to

PicoStation, but it will do what you need.   Dave

Re: Need airRouter to connect to another network

I configured the network mode to router and set the WAN interface to WLAN0. It connects to the wireless network and pulls a DHCP address from the other network. I attaced a screenshot of my current settings. When I try port 1 on the router it pulls DHCP but cannot browse. Any ideas?

I have been messing around with it this morning and it works! Just needed to check the NAT box under WAN settings.
