One thing that would be really helpful would be to be able to use iphone with personal hotspot as a usb modem for the AP/BR devices. I know the hotspot in a way makes it not necessary, but Aerohive has loads better radios than iphone wifi and also this way you could have centralised control over the wireless. Any chance of this working?

Hi Juha,

We have upcoming capability on the BR-200 that will allow it to act as a WIFI client. So if you enable Hotspot option on iPhone and enable WIFI option on the iPhone the BR can act as a WIFI client to the iPhone , while serving clients connected to the BR.
