Wireless Bridge blocks broadcast packets

Hi, I have some difficulty to make a wireless bridge totally transparent.

A wireless bridge created on two AP1242AG Access Points to connect two physical networks. Access points are configured as root-bridge and non-root bridge.

Bridge SSID is up and running, user behind non-root access points can not get a dhcp address, because no broadcast packets are flooded to the root bridge side which is the dhcp server resides.

Any ideas?

By default the traffic is not blocked. Check if there are any filters configured on the bridge that is blocking the UDP port 67 and 68 which is meant for DHCP traffic. If not try rebooting the bridge.
