I am having trouble configuring a 3Com Wireless access point with SBS 2003 Standard. Network configuration is as follows: A VINA eLink IAD brings in a T1, from there a SonicWALL TZ-170 firewall is configured as the gateway (with NAT and all the other good things) to a 3Com 24 port 10/100/1000 switch. The server is an HP ML110 G2 with 2 gigs of RAM. SP1 has been installed as has all the current updates. It is the DNS, DHCP and WINS server as well as our Exchange box. The wireless AP is a 3Com OfficeConnect 11g. The AP is configured with a static IP from the excluded range (under 192.168.XXX.100) and is using PEAP. The network also has another sever used for a Symantec Anti Virus server and a secondary DNS and WINS server. I have tried several times using the Microsoft TechNet instructions http://www.microsoft.com/technet/solutionaccelerators/smbiz/sitsol/DsgnNwrk_12.mspx?mfr=true
but still can get it to work.
What happens is I can see the SSID (set to broadcast for this install) and the laptop tries to connect but can't get an IP. If I configure an IP to the laptop it connects fine. What I want is to have the laptop connect using the "shared secret" and not have to hard set the IP's. I want the server to provide the IP through DHCP. Also I'm assuming that a "shard secret" is the password or key but I know all to well what happens when you "assume" so if someone could clue me in that would be great.
Any help on this would be very appreciated as I know it's just something I'm missing. (Don't you just hate that)
