AP only mode on WAX206 in DSA

I flashed Netgear WAX206 with OpenWrt and don't need more features than original firmware Access Point Mode.
I got a rotuer which handles DHCP and routing already, I want to use WAX206 inside the same network so my WLAN devices can access ethernet devices. The only port connected to WAX206 was 2.5G WAN.
Did telnet to original firmware and checked config:


config interface 'loopback'
        option ifname 'lo'
        option proto 'static'
        option ipaddr ''
        option netmask ''

config switch
        option name 'switch0'
        option reset '1'
        option enable_vlan '1'

config interface 'lan'
        option type 'bridge'
        option ifname 'eth0.0 eth0.4095'
        option proto 'dhcp'

config switch_vlan
        option vlan '0'
        option device 'switch0'
        option ports '1 2 3 4 6t'

config switch_vlan
        option vlan '4095'
        option device 'switch0'
        option ports '5 6t'

which is old, yet I am having trouble translating this into DSA.
I got standard lan, wan and wan6 devices and br-lan, detected ports:
how can I rework default settings into something I was using with stock firmware? (Access Point preconfigured mode without routing). Currently I have lan network running with and it's ok, while WAN is, but I need WLAN devices to be in the 192.168.1.x net as used to be with original firmware.

So you want a Dumb AP - this is easily achieved by following the Dumb AP Guide on the Wiki.

If you have specific questions/problems with the guide, feel free to ask.


Esspecially the first video opened the changes to me.

I did it using the guide, but without VLANs
