Users are able to connect to the wireless access point fine.  The connection is very strong but they can not access the internet.  They are not getting ip addresses from the DHCP server.  How do I  get the DHCP server to assign addresses to the AP.

Hi,

What about the access point, does it has a DHCP server? You may use it as the DHCP server if it supports that.

Okay, we need clarification, but I am guessing one of two of the following will be your solution based on what you said.

1) If you have a server (on a separate computer) that is handling all of your DHCP requests, then you should disable the DHCP server on Access Point, give it a static IP that is on the same network as the actual DHCP server, and then have the access point do it's intended job, (pass the DHCP data along from the actual DHCP server to client computers).

2) If you would prefer the DHCP server to assign IP addresses (assuming it is capable of doing so), you must login to it's administration area, and enable this feature. Something along the lines of "Enable DHCP Server" should be turned on.
