Can you run lightweight APs behind a workgroup bridge?

We have a site that wants to "bridge in" a small building with no fiber run to it. That building is only 400-500 feet from a fully connected building, so we are suggesting they use a pair of 3502e with directional antennae mounted outside. The AP in the connected building would be lightweight, and they will convert the other to IOS to configure it as the bridge. They have a switch in the remote building with ~10 clients wired to it.

They would like to provide some wireless in that building as well. I know WGBs can be configured to also support clients, but the antenna will be highly directional and mounted outside. Can lightweight APs be put behind a workgroup bridge and connect properly to the WLC on the other side? (We will be trunking all the appropriate VLANs through it)

No, I do not think so.

Here is a link to wired/wireless client support on a WGB, that may help you
