Pepwave Surf 200 (Router)

I recently was gifted a Pepwave Surf 200 (Router) that was attached to Earthlink and couldn’t access any other AP’s. I was able to overcome this by downloading the config file off another Pepwave that wasn’t for Earthlink and uploading to the Earthlinked Pepwave. Now I’m trying to get the device to act as a wireless AP itself, is there any way to do this (does the device even have the capability?) Maybe some firmware I can force on it?
