Client unable to get DHCP IP from 871W

Answered Question
May 12th, 2010

Hi,

I am playing around with an 871W router and have setup a local dhcp pool:

ip dhcp pool LAN_DHCP

     import all

     network 10.10.10.0 255.255.255.0

     default-router 10.10.10.1

The laptop connected to it isn't able to receive an IP.

Here is what I am seeing in the logs:

*Feb 28 21:19:16.963 CST: DHCPD: Sending notification of DISCOVER:

There is only my laptop connected to it and it's not connected to the Internet.

Any assistance would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Lily

Change your config to the following and try again

ip dhcp excluded-address 10.10.10.1 10.10.10.X
ip dhcp smart-relay

!

ip dhcp pool LAN_DHCP

     network  10.10.10.0 255.255.255.0

     default-router 10.10.10.1

!

Hello,

Adding the line fixes the issue, but why that happens at all!

There should be a bug somewhere that there are plenty of IP addresses available and the router is not able to attribute any! I can't find the bug on Cisco website though!
