WFS709TP: Setup for multiple locations/subnets

I am attempting to setup our WFS709TP AP controller to run WGL102 APs that are located at various locations (and in different subnets) across our WAN environment.

I not having much luck with any of the official manuals - they are vague at best when describing how this may be done.

Is it possible for APs in different subnets and locations all use the same SSID? I assume that these must be setup to use different VLANs but I am getting some non-descript errors when attempting this. Using a different SSID is accepted however it would nice if I could use the same SSID given it would minimise client setup for those people that move across locations/subnets and allow them to us just the one preferred network.

If anyone can give me a more in depth description (than the manual provides) as to how this may be achieved (hopefully with an example with IPs) it would be greatly appreciated.
