Configuring a Watchguard AP through a Cisco Switch

I'm trying to connect a Watchguard T30 to an AP320 through a Cisco Catalyst 2960.

I'm able to set up trunking on the Cisco so that I can see the AP320 through the controller, however when I connect to the WLAN I get no DHCP address, and I can't get online even when I hard code the IP. Based on some logging information I've seen on the Watchguard, it almost looks as though the Cisco switch is sending packets to the wrong gateway address.

It looks like when a device was requesting an IP on the VLAN 192.168.5.1/24 subnet that request was sent to the lan 192.168.1.1 gateway.

I'm extremely new to Cisco so it's entirely possible I'm missing something obvious, but when the VLAN's are set up on the router and then trunking is configured for those VLAN's on the Cisco, is there a place where you need to specify what Gateway to use for each trunk?

Can you post your switch config, please, and also tell us which port the AP connects to and which VLAN the client should be on.
