DHCP and Wireless connections
Posted on 2008-10-18
Heres something that is taxing my brain. I have setup SBS2003, there are two NIC cards and the DHCP is enabled on the server and disabled on my Netgear Router. Ethernet connections to the network are working fine, they are all XP sp2.
Until last night, a few laptops were connecting via wireless to the 2Wire BT router which was acting as the DHCP server. I dropped the router in favour of the Netgear one and now the SBS runs the DHCP. The Vista laptops are now unable to connect to the Router, running ipconfig/release and then renew results in DOS replying the DHCP server cannot be located, obviously as it's looking for the router to assign an IP address.
Does anyone know how to setup vista's wireless connection so that it looks for the server to get it's IP address assigned? My boss is back on monday and he also has Vista on Wireless so I need to get this working! Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated
