Need instructions on a IAP as a Wifi client and bridge the Ethernet interface to a switch

I’m trying to obtain information on which Aruba IAP model I should purchase in order connect to an existing Aruba wireless environment extending connectivity to a roaming cart with PC’s that do not have wireless capabilities. This roaming cart will need to have send and receive capabilities from the corporate network through our wireless network.  I would like instructions on how to bridge the Ethernet side of the IAP and connect as a client via the wireless uplink. Any suggestions or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Take a look at the HPE 501 client bridge.

Thanks for the information, I will see if it will be allowed on our network. Do you happen to know of an Aruba IAP that might work as well. My company has a strict hardware policy for network attached devices.

11n IAPs will work with WiFi uplink.

Thank you Sir I think I will try an IAP 103. This should allow Wireless uplink client connectivity and then allow my Ethernet network to bridge to the corporate network.
