Can I set up a AP121 to wirelessly connect to my router?

I have set up my AP121 with my router and everything is working fine. I have an LAN connection from the AP to the router.

To get the set-up i need, i need to have the AP connected to the router wirelessly.

Is this possible?
If so can any advise me how?

Thanks

This may be a very silly question. I have little network experience.

This is a home office set-up.

Thanks

Hi Gerard,
Are you using aerohive BR series router? if you are, you can set AP121 and the router within the same hive(mesh group), so that they can wireless communicate with each other.
Here is the setup for hive name on HM:



and you need to set the BR and AP the same radio channel and mesh mode:

Thanks Jason,
The router is not a Areohive, it is a standard fiber optic home router.

Can i still link wirelessly?

Thanks,
Gerry

Gerard,
No. Our Access Points cannot act as wifi clients, they are APs.
