We have recently purchased a Motorola WS5100 switch and AP300 access points.  I need to deploy the access points via a Layer 3 Network.  Access points on the Layer 2 network pick up with no problem, however Access Points which are on a different network are not picking up a IP Address via DHCP.  The access points are plugged into a Cisco 2960 switch, workstations and clients plugged into the same switch are picking up IP addresses from DHCP with no problem. The switch is on a different network and is connected via a 3750 switch which then routes back to a central core. I have configured the DHCP with option 189 which is supposed to forward the AP's to the wireless switch, but im convinced that the traffic is not getting as far as the DHCP server.  Does anyone have any advice at all on this.  I have been working on this problem for what seems like forever with no luck.  Thanks in advance
