We are a Facilities Department for a University and decided to implement 3 AP (1200 Series, 12.3(8)JA2 IOS, 802.11G Upgrades). The first problem is that I wanted to use DHCP for a least one of these radios. Our OTS makes it difficult to get staic IPs at times. We need to "register" the MACs of everything. With a computer, it is easy since you are directed to a web page. With an AP or printer, you need to call and register manually. The ethernet and radio MACS are both registered, yet we can not get a IP via DHCP. Is there a setting we need to do this by CLI?
Also, we have 3 APs (1 on each floor). We do this to provide redundancy and coverage. It is an old thick-bricked building. All the radios are set up as APs (not repeaters, etc.), on channel 6. Is this the best topology? Should I have some set as repeaters?
