Hi everyone.

I was wondering if any of you guy have had this same problem in the past and could find a solution.

I am having troubles connecting my company's access points to the NG server, and here is why:

this Company is a Financial Bussiness Company, but it was necessary to provide Wi-Fi to the associates.
so we come up with the idea to put the access points away from the Business LAN, since it contains confidential and Financial information. it is somethin like this:

Other thing that I would like to mention is the fact that we have more than 30 agencies  with this base structure, and all of the access points will be connected to the hivemanager in the main office.

so do you have any suggestion or the solution for that matter?

thanks for your help

Just off the top of my head,

Could you NAT your hivemanager out your firewall restricting access to the IP range of the remote site's exteral IPs, then point your APs to that external address of the hivemanager?

Locally, you could create a management vlan and subnet for your switches, APs, etc. and permit traffic between that subnet and your LAN. You can still keep your wifi traffic separate. It appears you're running the AP130 as a WAN router, correct?
