DHCP over wireless using WEP
Posted on 2004-11-16
I have a Netgear WGT624 wireless router, which is also acting as a DHCP server. It works fine with no security, but when I enable WEP (64-bit or 128-bit), my laptops can detect the network & get a good signal, but they're unable to get valid IP addresses (they get an auto 169.254... address). DHCP still works fine for wired users.
The laptops are Toshiba Tecra 8200s, with built-in wireless cards, and the latest driver update. The router has the latest firmware update. I've set this up and undone it and re-done it several times, but still can't get these laptops on the network via wireless. Browsing the net, this looks like a fairly common problem...but I haven't found the solution anywhere. Please help! Thanks.
