Aironet 1262N - Access Point behind Non-Root Bridge possible?


I want to connect two buildings. Let's call them Building A (main) and Building B.

„A“ is the main building and provides a wired LAN to an AAA server ( and the WAN gateway (

There I placed a 1262N with the IP connected to the wired LAN and configured it as Root-Bridge. Let's call it AP01.

„B“ is a pretty large building and has a wired LAN from one end to the other end.

So I placed two 1262N there, each at one end.

The first 1262N is configured as non-root Bridge (AP02) and connects to the Root Bridge (AP01).

The IP address of AP02 is

The second 1262N is configured as Access Point (AP03) and connects to the non-root Bridge (AP02) via the wired LAN.

The IP adress of AP03 is

My Questions:

1. Do I need tell AP02 about the AAA Server in Building A or acts AP01 like a AAA Proxy for AP02 because of it Root Bridge functionality?

2. How Do I tell AP03 that it should use AP02 as a gateway to building A?

I attached a diagram.
