Best way to attach branch office SonicPoint to a main office SonicWall NSA connected via dedicated ethernet

Last Modified: 2015-07-31
Hello World!

We have a SonicWall NSA 220 with an existing SonicPoint N wireless access point in the main (HQ) office and want to add a SonicPoint N2 to branch office.  The branch office is connected to the HQ NSA via Comcast dedicated Ethernet line (EDL).  The network consists of a single subnet with no site-to-site VPN or anything like that, it's flat.  The EDL is a dedicated connection through provider equipment that provides a seamless network between locations.  Because we are installing the SonicPoint N2 at the branch office we cannot connect it physically to the NSA WLAN port (X6) so we need help with an alternate way to connect the N2 to the NSA.  As it stands the N2 exists on the LAN (X0).  X0 and X6 are currently bridged to allow LAN access wirelessly via the HQ WAP.  What is the best method to add the remote SP N2 to the mix?
