WiFi Access Points : Invalid IP address assigned
Posted on 2004-08-26
I have two 3com 11g access points connected to the same subnet, at different ends of the office, Both are acting unreliably, one is called FVcustard (SSID) and the other is called FVcustard2 both are using WPA-PSK and both are using channel 8... (Is that a problem?)
The idea being the provide wireless access to the entire office.
Our office is surrounded by several others and there are several other wireless connections available.
DHCP is provided by or buildings ISP.
The main symptom is that devices can connect and authenticate but sometimes, it takes a very long time to receive an ipaddress, or they never receive an ipaddress or worse they receive a random ip address which is not from our subnet???
HELP! It makes no sence .. other times it is completely fine and works perfectly. even transitions from one access point to the other.
