Dear experts

I got following problem:
I bought a D-Link AP DAP 2590, and tried to connect it to our company network, the settings went fine until when i tried to connect the AP with my wireless using laptop, issue occured, the wireless is asking for IP all the times... non stops...

I know its some kind of problem in DHCP, we are using windows 2003 r2 as our DHCP server.
In the AP i also tried to point DHCP IP. Still not working better.

I wonder if i need to config anything to the server? And how to fix the problem?

Try a repair of your wireless NIC.  Right click the icon in the system tray and click on Repair.  If it still does not connect, make sure your encryption keys are correct if you are using a pre-shared key system such as WEP or WPA-PSK.

I tried on 3 PC same problem... I am not sure if the repair would fix the problem. Encryption is WPA-PSK also WPA2.

Do you get a DHCP responce when you are wired?  The D-Link is an access point correct?  Not a router/firewall?  If it is a router you may want to look to see if you can put it into access point mode.  It could be blocking DHCP traffic from passing through.

When i get wired i need to set the AP to a static IP to config it or dynamic IP to check DHCP setting in server to know which IP it got, That D-link is a AP you can go check it out, D.Link DAP 2590, a AP.
