DHCP Relay

Hi Experts,

I have configured DHCP relay on a wireless management device so wireless clients get IP address from our DHCP server which sites on a different subnet. I have configured a superscope with both IP ranges but it doesn't work. What do I have to do on the Windows box to enable two scopes to work - one for wired network and one for wireless network? I assumed the wireless device would broadcast and the DHCP relay would answer with an address from the scope that related to the interface sending the request?

Thanks.

for both scopes   make sure you have the correct router option set.

Routers are correct.

Is it correct to create a superscope or should I have just created two scopes?

So I have two separate scopes configured for two separate subnets. Both scopes are activated, I have DHCP relay on wireless management device which sites between both pysical subnets (wireless subnet and subnet of DHCP server) and I have one IP address on the DHCP server's network interface - the IP for the scope on its subnet (do I need another IP on the interface for the wireless scope?) Can you think of anything I have missed?

Thanks.
