Two D-Link DAP-2553 Access Points: #1 is DHCP server, #2 doesn't see it - clients fail
Posted on 2014-03-07
I have two of these access points. They are both on the latest firmware. #1 of 2 is the DHCP server for that LAN.
Device #1 has a static address 172.16.0.5 (SSID is 'fitness')
Device #2 has a static address 172.16.0.4 (SSID is 'SWcorner')
My WiFi phones and tablets can see both access points by their SSIDs. If a device signs on to device #1, it gets an IP address and everything works wonderfully. If a device signs on to device #2, the device will hang on 'obtaining IP address'.
It's the same LAN, and the same subnet. Both D-Link devices are physically connected to the same switch.
Why aren't client devices getting an address from device#1 when they connect to device#2?
