Using two ports on my ZyXel USG gateway to patch two devices together?

I don't know if this is possible but it would save me many long drives!

I have drawn, with my epic MS Paint skills, my current setup. http://i.stack.imgur.com/VrJDl.jpg

I have a ZyXel USG300 Gateway with a built in 5 port switch. It supports bridging, tunnles, VLANs, etc..

I have a Cisco WLC2112 plugged into port 6 (P6). The cisco is set to 192.168.6.2 and P6 is set to 192.168.6.1. This works but I need to incorporate a Nomadix AG3000 to handle guests. (Router (A) in the picture). So I need the Cisco WLC2112 to use the Nomadix as if it where plugged into it's LAN port. Right now the Nomadix WAN Port is plugged into (P2) on the ZyXel, and the Nomadix LAN port is plugged into (P3). Is it possible to set something up where (P3) and (P6) are somehow "Patched" as if the Cisco was plugged directly into the Nomadix LAN port? Basically making the ZyXel a fancy Cat5e coupler?

Hi,

Could you please tell me what should your guest do after connecting to your network through AG30000 ?
I only want to see what do you want to accomplish with these devices .

I want to use the AG3000 for AAA via a portal site and per-user bandwidth limiting.  The AG3000 is already doing this for wired guests.  But I'd also like the ability to remote into the ZyXel and bypass the Nomadix completely if needed.

Log into your router and go to configuration > Network Interface > drag port 6 to GE3.  Port 3 and 6 should be on the same subnet then.
