Here we will show you how to turn an Apple AirPort Wireless Router into an Access Point.

Apple AirPort Router does have the ability to change the Network Mode to an Access Point, Apple calls this mode "Bridge mode".

You have to change this router to become an Access Point if you need to connect it to CUJO in "Bridge mode".

 

Router as Access Point:

At this point don't connect your CUJO to your Network just yet and follow the steps below;


You will need Airpot Utility to configure the necessary changes to your Apple Router, you can download it from this link for Windows or iMac: https://support.apple.com/downloads/airport

The easiest way to find it on your MAC computer is to press Command+Space button combination and type in "Airport Utility". Once it shows, hit "Enter" on your keyboard:



1) In AirPort Utility click on the AirPort device to show information, then click “Edit” button as shown below;



2) Now click on “Network” tab and from “Router Mode” drop down box choose “Off (Bridge Mode)” and click “Update” button as shown below;



Now your Apple AirPort router is acting as an Access Point.

If you did everything correctly then you will be able to connect to this Access Point and proceed to CUJO setup;

 

Connect CUJO

At this point you could connect CUJO between your ISP Router and your Access Point;


  • Connect CUJO's bottom Ethernet port to your ISP Router which provides DHCP server and serves as Internet source.
  • Connect CUJO's top Ethernet port to any LAN port of your Apple Router acting as an Access Point.


 


If you did everything correctly as described above, your CUJO will be up and running and will start protecting your Network from Hackers.
