Why won't my wireless clients get dhcp through my access point
Posted on 2007-12-06
I have a Buffalo Wireless N-Finity (WZR-AG300NH) set to AP mode. This unit has a static IP and is using WPA for wireless security. My router is a Sonicwall TZ-170 with the enhanced OS. This is also my DHCP server. We have no other servers of any kind on the network. The employees are assigned an IP address just fine if they are wired in. Wireless pcs, however, will not get an address until they are wired in. Static IPs will work on the wireless clients but there is a great number of different units coming in and out which makes that impractical. Once the wireless clients recieve an address through DHCP wired, the cable can be unplugged and wireless will function flawlessly.
I have been completely stumped on this. I have checked every setting on both units (that is, until you guys show me the one i missed) and cannot for the life of me figure this one out.
Thanks in advance
