WDS and DHCP issues

I have a series of 1200 series access points, set-up for WDS infrastructure mode to ACS and client authentication to Microsoft IAS.

When set up in WDS mode, clients authenticate to the IAS server (and event viewer confirms this), but clients do not receive an ip address - even though they do DHCP requests.

anyone offer advice on any similar issues?

Can you provide more information on the deisgn?

Are you using VLANs in your wireless config? If so, does your router or switch have the ip helper address specified for DHCP requests?

If not, can you obtain an address when the client is plugged into the same port as the access point?

All sorted now - I had a look on previous TAC cases for WLAN and it appears that the command (which was in by default in our config) of 'mobility network-id xx' needed to be removed. Upon removing, DHCP kicked into life.
