Windows 2012 R2 Dhcp Iphone connectivity


I set up a new office recently with windows 2012 R2 (no AD) running DHCP.  connecting to home network AD via ssl tunnel.  I also have a Cisco WAP55X for wifi.  DHCP is passing addresses to all wired clients and windows based wireless clients.  Will not pass addresses to Iphones, ipads.  I don't think it's the cisco, as for troubleshooting I also connected a netgear WN203 that was working fine on 2003 R2 DHCP server and same results.

is there something new in the server 2012 that blocks the apple ios?

What modes/type  are you running on your wifi?

Have you messed around with setting to just a certain type?  

What model iPhone are you trying to connect?

wifi is setup as single point / did have connection.  downgraded to wpa-tkip.  Cisco support looked at the WAP and found nothing wrong, wire shark indicates connection and passing to dhcp, however nothing returning to the iPhone (6).  No advanced settings on the WAP, QOS, MAC filtering, etc.

Same with DHCP server, just a scope.

No I haven't...I will try that.  Will security cause the DHCP issue?
yo_beeDirector of Information TechnologyCommented:
Shouldn't, but removing that from the mix eliminates that as a possible cause if you still experience this issue.

Another option is to setup DHCP on the Wifi and see if iOS device gets an ip.

open security made no difference.  Configure DHCP on the Access point worked.  IOS devices connected and received IP address.
