Default Two FW + WiFi AP Inquiry

I'm planning to beef up my firewall setup by using two OpenBSD firewalls running CARP and pfsync. The question is where do I add my wireless access point. I'm assuming it'll connect into the switch along with the modem and two firewalls but after that I'm clueless how to make all of them work using two FWs. I used to connect the wifi AP directly to the firewall ethernet port. I'm planning to use authpf and ssh tunnel to connect to the network. Any insights appreciated. Thanks.

How about two firewalls with built in wireless nics? I would like to use wireless as the communication medium for CARP/PFSYNC as well as an access point using authpf for regular users.

Let's forget the idea of pfsync over wireless and instead use carp/pfsync over host to host usb cable. http://www.linux-usb.org/usbnet/

I thought about that but I want to put the AP on the other switch do some filtering.
