Assuming you use different ports on each AP.
I would use Inbound NAT:
External address: Interface address
External port range from: (other) <port>
to: (other) <port>
NAT IP: <Enter the internal IP address>
Local port: (other) <port>
Description: Give it a good description
Check the "Auto-add a firewall rule to permit traffic through this NAT
You would be able to connect to the WAN IP:<port> from off site and
connect to the AP with the corresponding port. You will create 3 such
rules (1 for each AP). Make sure you have security of some kind on the
AP - its admin interface will be open to the world...
