Meraki APs

Have some Meraki APs showing as repeaters in a mesh, but these APSs are hard wired to the LAN, so confused why. APs acting as gateways are hard wired, APs acting as repeaters look to other APs as the aren't hard wired. However, in this situation all APs are hard wired but some are showing as repeaters !!!

Maybe the person setting them up did not understand the difference? Or, could it be they not originally used as repeaters, and now are? Or, is the hard wired connection really connected to anything?

When the APs are connected to the LAN via a cable then it should become a gateway AP as you mention above.

The AP only converts to Repeater mode when the default gateway can't be reached or if the AP can't get an IP address from DHCP.

See this article for clarification: https://kb.meraki.com/knowledge_base/gateway-ap-switches-to-repeater-mode

Have you also physically checked that the APs in Repeater mode are functioning correctly? A solid green light would indicate they are working fine as Repeaters.
