Bridging a VLAN to a stand alone AP

I have a telescope that acts like an access point, allowing people nearby to connect and control the device.   I'd like to be able to bridge a VLAN on my Meraki network to that telescope's SSID so that I can extend the range of that further into my home.

 

I've tried researching through the documentation online, but am not able to find a way to do this.

 

I have MR52 APs and an MS225 switch.

 

Thanks in advance

 You will need a MX for that.

Basically the AP will create a VPN connection to the MX and the mx will forward all packets to the vlan.

Only Merai APs can do that.  The AP built into the MR wont have that capabillity.

Kind of a big deal

Does the Telescope have an Ethernet port?

Another option - can the telescope act as a wireless client and join your existing wireless network? This would make everything easy.

Doesn't look like it.  Thanks for the replies though!
