hi all

just wondering if ap`s would benefit from a static address range

presumably they collect the same address after lease expiry

now i need to find 10 new addresses for new non wireless equipment n order for the server team to have a nice continous address range , if i reboot the ap`s and their existing 10 addresses are taken will they pick up new addresses in that range (given that there is still 10 spare)

many thanks

not really. It's more of a deployment preference (partly, for the reason you state - if there are different teams managing different aspects of the network, making deployment easier). LWAPP in itself, is not tied to the AP being statically assigned with an IP Address due to the dynamic nature of Layer 3 LWAPP - all you need is L3 connectivity. Hope that helps.

thanks sabhasin,

i kinda guessed this was the case. if i static the ap`s then at least there fixed with permanent addresses.

is there any kind of risks accociated with ap`s on non statics i.e will a renewal create a blip or is it quicker than that.

how is the layer 3 lwapp working in this way.

great help so far btw ;)
