can RCM5600W appear to be a WiFi hotspot, like a router?

I need to be able to configure an RCM5600W in the field, without using a console or USB. It occurs to me that if I could let it appear to be a router, the PC could connect to it, and perhaps then I could send messages to control configuration of the WiFi as a normal device that will connect to a local router. I hope that is clear, as I am not sure whether there is specific jargon which would make it clearer.
