Looking for a small AP that runs on 12v that has at least 1 Ethernet port that can be bridged via WiFi AC.

Hi, I had good luck here finding a gig switch that runs on 12v on this forum, so I am back looking for an AC Access Point also runs on 12v. It needs to be able to bridge via WiFi AC bands and have an Ethernet port that I can plug in a switch to share the network across that WiFi bridge to the Internet. It will connect via AC WiFi to a Pepwave Max Transit (MT) that provides cellular internet for our Motorhome while traveling.

Yes, pulling Cat-6 cable will eventually bubble up to the top of the todo list, but its a long way off. Today I have a couple TL-WR902AC Travel Routers that run on 5v and I want to get rid of the buck converters. The MT will replace one of them and I am looking for the replacement for the other one that's 40' feet away. -Bill

PS. It turns out Bridging is called WiFi Extender on that hardware. It works, and I am not connecting to the WiFi on that AP.

Ah, when I clicked on its hardware page it actually went to a different device for some reason, it did it again when I just went there. You are correct, its 12v. Thanks, Bill

JFYI. That router is 12v and it works great, even has an available wall mount! Currently its setup as a 5 Ghz AC bridge. Working well! Thanks sfx2000. -Bill
