I've heard some aps can be configured in "client mode" and by doing
so the ap actually acts as a client device (and thus other clients
will not see it as an ap anymore). Not sure if this is what you want.
However the aps I've seen don't implement this, and I don't know if
this feature is present in other hardware. Don't know about any
potential inter-operatibiliy issues either.
