lightweight mode behind WGB

Is it possible to encapsulate one CAPWAP tunnel in another one with using IOS WGB in the middle?

Usually after WGB we have wired clients and I was wonder if we can connect there  (instead of switch and wired clients) another LAP access point.

What I mean is shown and explain on the figure below

No its not gonna work.. WGB works like a Wireless cleint to the AP and this inturn cant bridge traffic of an LWAPP to the WLC.. more over, the WGB just supports only one VLAN.. that is the native VLAN..

Lemme know if this answered ur question and please dont forget to rate the usefull posts!!

so the best way in that situation is to configure both access points that participate in the bridge connection as IOS bridges (1242G for example) ?  And then both devices are working only to build the bridge, neither for connecting wireless clients, am I right?
