A client has a wired and a WiFi network with 30 clients.
They are services by a Win 2003 STD server with DNS And DHCP as well as AD (+ other services)
When the server is used with the wired connection everything is working satisfactory.
If the WiFi connection is used the renegotiation of DHCP addresses is sometimes not successfull
In this case the local DHCP address is set to and all cennectivity is lost.
Client WiFi is a SMC PCI card.
I have tried with two differens AccessPoints with the same result.
Has anyone seen this before?
Any leads to solve this?
