Use wap as dhcp instead of network server

I need to have my WAP's pass out dhcp addresses in a different range than my 2008 dhcp box. I am using the 10.1.0.0/16 network and passing out 10.1.100.1, 10.1.101.254 adds from my dhcp server and need to have my waps pass out addresses in the 10.1.102.1, 10.1.102.254 So I can allow ip range traffic through our web filter. I have enabled DHCP server on the access points with the above range but all wireless devices are still receiving adds from the DHCP server not the waps. Please advise..... and thanks......

You cannot have 2 DHCP servers in the same network.
Is this a router or a real WAP?

One might ask "why do you "need" to do this?"  The one server should do the job through the WAP.  Is it that you want separate ranges for the wireless clients?

I don't think you can guarantee *which* server will end up being used in any one interaction.  So, you may not get what you want......

Want I am trying to acomplish here is that all Wireless connections will receive a different IP range than the LAN workstations. That way I can manage the wireless ip range on our web filter for access.

You cannot have a /16 network and have different DHCP ranges for wireless and wired in the way that you have described.

I would suggest adding an additional VLAN for the wireless access points and have this VLAN logically terminate on an internal L3 device, then you can have a different subnet for wireless users.

ArneLovius is right, a VLAN or an actual separate LAN is the only way.
