I recently deployed an HP MSM760 wireless controller device. I have 2 wireless networks configured - a secured network for our school and an unencrypted network for the public to access. I am having an issue with Windows 7 notebooks connecting to the public access network. This includes our 2 Windows 7 notebooks as well as several parents who have brought their own notebooks which leads me to belive it is not a specific brand of notebook.
The actual issue is that the Win 7 nbks will not pick up an IP address from the controller on the public unsecured network. It will obtain an address on the encrypted network just fine. Win XP and Macs have connected to the public network just fine.
I have updated the firmware in the MSM760. Our notebooks do not yet have SP1 installed and I don't know if the parents' notebooks have SP1.
Our anti-virus is Sophos and does not include a firewall.
I have disabled IPV6.
HP claims they have not heard of anyone else with this issue.
Has anyone heard of restrictions within Win 7 for connecting to unsecured networks?
Any and all suggestions are welcome.
