So I was messing around and thought that a the mesh AP was something completely different than it was but i switch anyways and now the only way to bet into the router is though safe mode and telnet. I have try hard reset and mutable forms of reset to just get it back to even the no-call firmware. Is there a way to switch the mode or reinstall the firmware from safe mode?

I ended up just resetting the router to the basic nocall state by running a command in failsafe mode called firstboot witch like i said resets the node back to a nocall state I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND if you don't want to just start over. For me starting over is not a big deal due to simplicity of my settings and was up and running again in less than a minute. If there is a way to solve this to let it with the settings let me i would love to hear it.

There is a help page located on the Mesh router that details exactly what the Mesh AP mode does. http://<node_name>:8080/help.html (link located on the left of the mesh node pages that says help).

Here's what the help file says:

In this mode the device is pre-configured to act as an access point providing standard wireless access to the LAN side of another mesh node. This is to be used on a second router whose LAN port is connected with the LAN port of a mesh node. It is a simple mode but there are special considerations, especially when you want to get out of this mode. See the section at the end called Mesh Access Point considerations for details.

Mesh Access Point considerations

When a device is configured in Mesh Access Point mode it is essentially 'transparent'. You are going through the device to reach a mesh node, and there is no need to get to the device unless you wish to change its configuration. When the time comes to reconfigure a device in this mode be aware that it is not running its own DHCP server because that is the job of the mesh node it is connected to. You will need some other way to configure your computer's network interface. There are two ways to do this:

  1. Manual configuration
    Connect only your computer to the LAN port. Set your IP address to 172.27.0.100 and your netmask to 255.255.255.0. No other settings are needed.

  2. Automatic configuration
    You will need another mesh node that is using NAT mode on its LAN, and using the default LAN IP address of 172.27.0.1. Both of these are required, otherwise this method will not work. Connect both your computer and the LAN of the Mesh Access Point to the LAN of the mesh node.

In this mode the default IP address on the LAN port is 172.27.0.2. After one of the above steps you should be able to send your browser to http://172.27.0.2:8080/. If you used automatic configuration you should also be able to go to http://localap:8080/. Like the name "localnode", an automatically generated name exists called "localap" which is set to the localnode address plus one, but only when the node LAN mode is set to NAT. If you changed the default IP address of a Mesh Access Point you will have to modify these instructions accordingly.
