I needed a small wireless bridge to work with a Polycom V700 videoconference device we will be using for American Sign Language interpretation. It is not a Windows device. I thought about using a Cisco 1242 as a workgroup bridge but that is pretty expensive for what is basically a wireless NIC for the V700. So I decided to try a Linksys WET200. It came of course with the CD that had the documents on it.
I was trying to find out if the device I was putting into an ethernet port of the WET200 could get a DHCP address. It was not in the documentation. So I went to the Linksys web site and when I went to support, it took me to CCO. I thought great. Cisco has integrated this into their web site and I will have greater resources here.
What I found is a regurgitation of the manuals. Nothing else. Q&A was simplistic and just took you back to the manual which I had already read. I have it working with a static IP address but to alleviate some issues with Cisco LWAPP and controllers, it would be best to be DHCP.
I would like to know if someone knows how to get a DHCP address from a DHCP server when connected into a WET200.
