I have 7781cm bought from eBay.

PROBLEM:
I don't know how to configure it to AP mode instead of CM mode.
Here the LED status

I don't have cable modem. I just want to use it as AP or connected to vSZ 3.2.

QUESTIONS:
1. to make use of it. This url said, I need to connect both AC from cable modem and DC12v.
Is that true?

As I said before, I don't have cable modem.

2. Can I change to AP mode only.

No, you cannot configure the 7781cm AP to function without CM mode.

See the Outdoor AP user guide:  https://ruckus-support.s3.amazonaws.com/private/documents/672/rw-out-ap-100-1-0-ug-800-70863-001-rev...

Page 35 explains for PoE it requires Power Over Cable (POC) from an HFC cable plant.
In addition to the coaxial cable power CMTS, the AP can also be powered by DC.
