Just curious, why?

The usual NetworkManager methods (if any?) should work, google for
"network manager ignore device" type thing.
You could delete the hal fdi file that identifies the device as mesh
(in which case it will come up as a regular wifi device).
Not really sure how the mesh on/off thing works at the firmware level,
there's no obvious way to turn it on or off. I guess it will always
forward packets as it hears them etc.
