Not getting DHCP address via WAP
Posted on 2009-03-31
I'm having trouble with wireless clients getting an ip address via our wireless access point(s). We have two Cisco Aironet 1200's and a Linksys WAP that are broadcasting a great signal, our laptops connect to the boxes, but then fail to get a DHCP address. The laptop tries for about 30 seconds and then times out, I get either and ip of 0.0.0.0 or a 169 address. If you plug any of these laptops in via a cable they get and ip and can browse the inter/intranet without any problem at all.
So far I have moved DHCP to another server, turned off AV, tried different access points, tried different ports on the switches, tried different WEP keys all to no avail.
