Bridge Autonomous 1252 AP to lightweight WLAN

I have a Cisco WLC 5508 managing several 1252s in lightweight mode.  There is a portable across campus that has a standalone network but no cabling to tie in to the corporate network.  I have another 1252 that is in autonomous mode.  Could I essentially configure that as a bridge with the same security and SSID in order to bridge the corporate WLAN?  If not, what are my options?  Regards, Dee

That looks like the one. Basically you're going to take the autonomous ap and make it the WGB configured to connect to your SSID. You can have up to 254 devices behind a WGB normally, that might be different with CUWN though. That doc should tell you the limitations.

Depending on how many clients you need to support you could look into WGB. it won't give you wireless users but it will get you wired users

Thanks for your response, Stephen.  I'm a little familiar with WGB and have read how you can set up APs to be bridges etc.  Considering that I have a WLC managing several Lightweight APs that make up a WLAN w/ WPA2 and a SSID, how would I implement WGB from the WLC/Lightweight AP's to bridge to the unwired, autonomous AP or Vice Versa.  Which AP would be the root?

Just a bit more information if you could.  I really appreciate it.
