Hi all, I have a netgear wifi router. Is there any way i can have this
operating on a network with an active wifi router and disactivate the
routing function? ie. just using it as a wifi access point?

Yes, just don't plug anything into the WAN port. The routing is only
between the LAN and WAN ports.

(oh, and disable the DHCP server, if present)
