I have an unusual issue with my 871W's not getting DHCP addresses from certain Linksys routers..
I have an 871W that I use at various locations (hotels, golf clubs, meeting centers) to provide a "company network" hotspot for various offsite meetings that the executives of the company host.
I'm running a pretty recent IOS on it c870-advipservicesk9-mz.124-15.T13
Here's my issue:
With the FA 4 configured with
IP address DHCP sales3 (hostname of the box so it is viewable in the host dhcp server)
Anyway, most sites we go to are served by Linksys (aka Cisco home) devices. I have a couple at the office to test with.
So my problem is this:
At some sites the 871 will not be able to get a DHCP address from the host router where laptops and such can get addresses.
We tried it out in the office and one Linksys had no problems giving out addresses and a newer one did not.
We sniffed the connection to the new linksys and see that the 871W is doing the DHCP DISCOVER broadcast which we trap at the port on the linksys but the linksys does not respond with an offer.
Has anyone else seen this happen? On the old linksys the handshake goes as you'd expect and the 871 gets an address and brings up the tunnel.
