Hi All,

ASA 5505- ver 7.2(3).. unable to get DHCP ip from carrier. A laptop can get when directly connected to cable.

ASA configured with :

interface Vlan2

description :internet

nameif outside

security-level 0

ip address dhcp setroute


dhcpd auto_config outside

The below I found in the Forum did not qwork:

7.2.3 or later you have a checkbox in ASDM Configuration / Interfaces / Outside / Edit / General. Check the value in "For the client identifier in DHCP option 61" - "Use Mac address".

Thank you


I have this problem too.
